I looked at KNTV, briefly, tonight and saw a squiggle and there were a few audio drop outs. Maybe all is not well yet, but better...

That time of the day looks suspicious, like a planned outage.

Maybe they have gotten a check from the FCC and no longer want to pay PG&E for the power to run their transmittor. ()

Hmmm, I had the same thought

As a taxpayer I hope that no money will be paid out until the money comes in. (Except that from K-Street of course which has already been received.)

Very intermittent but I saw some video dropouts around 8 am this morning. Big signal at SNR 28-29 dB.

I just read a report on the SF-HDTV Yahoo group that "@ 12:32 Sutro took a power hit yesterday. May be the issue."

As of 11:50 am Monday, KOFY 20 is still off the air.

Hi all, I'm in Sunnyvale. Could some of the recent issues people are noting with KNTV have anything to do with why my HDHomeRun setup/config programs can no longer see the call sign (guide name/guide number) for KNTV on channel 12? I can view the channel just fine in HDHR's viewer, but BeyondTV can't tune it at all as of this morning and I think it's because all of a sudden the guide name/guide number are blank (where they used to say "KNTV-HD" and "11.1"). I haven't watched a lot of NBC since the Olympics (full of dropouts and stuttering, it was awful), but this started fairly recently since at least for the Olympics we were able to tune the channel.

Under HDHomeRun config, under "Program" where it normally says things like "9.1 KQED-HD" or "7.1 KGO-HD", channel 12 just says "0", like there's no call sign coming in. It has always said "11.1 KNTV-HD" in the past. I don't know if this is a signal issue, a HDHR/SiliconDust issue, or something missing from the feed, but I thought I'd mention it.

I ended up switching to channel 49.5 (11.3) which is better here in the south bay.
