They have a problem somewhere in the transmission chain that looks to us like reception dropouts.

Doug and his contact at the station both responded to my latest e-mail. They say that they haven't seen the issue. Perhaps they just haven't looked at the right time.

The best we can hope for is that they see the problem themselves eventually.

Everyone please call KNTV 408-432-6221 and press option 4 to report this signal problem. Multiple calls will get their attention.

Either broken or maladjusted hardware at the broadcaster's end. The transport stream is leaving the transmitter with CE. This could be caused by packet loss in a link upstream of the the transmitter (e.g., in a microwave link, as Chuck suggested) or malfunctioning in the TS encoder (as I had guessed). Either way, it's on KNTV (or their program supplier) regardless of their protestations.

Oh! Thanks. A "reception problem" to my stupid mind meant a problem receiving, and didn't distinguish between source and target. "Transmission problem" might be a more accurate description.
