Received this at 4:40 -Our engineers just completed moving the weather channel to 11.2. If you're receiving our station over the air, you should be able to get it now. If you're on cable, it may be a few hours before the cable channel resets. Checked it and it is up. Back to were it started.

Just noticed WATL now has:
36.1 = My Network
36.2 = Bounce TV
36.3 = Universal Sports

While WXIA has:
11.1 = NBC
11.2 = W-I-Z (weather information zone)
11.3 = Universal Sports

Wondering if it will stay like this?

Don't forget that Universal Sports is going away on January 1, so it can't possibly stay that way past that date.

I have read on another internet source that there is a possibility that ANTENNA TV (another "retro-tv" type channel) may be coming to either the CH. 11 or 36 mux, in coming months. This could be a possible explanation for 36.3 becoming active again.

Some vandal has been posting that over and over again on Wikipedia for a year now and it keeps getting reverted because there is no source and not even a rumor to that effect.

I spent September and October pretty much completely distracted by other stuff, so I missed this news and just learned of it today when I came in here to see what was up with the 11.3 / 36.3 simulcast.

Dang it. There goes my healthy obsession with the other two Grand Tours (the Giro and the Vuelta).

We gave up directtv and I have been trying to get some local channels. Have posted before, and I've concluded I need assistance to ring out the problem.
Does anyone know where I can find a reliable tech to come to the house?

Is anybody having dropout issues (mainly audio) on WAGA (Fox 5.1) lately? I have a fairly consistent, strong signal, but the Falcons' games have become unwatchable. A buddy of mine mentioned the same issue, so I figured I would check with the community here...

5.1 has been ok in Acworth @ Wade Green Rd, but I've been getting short drop outs on 46.1 for the past 2 months. I'm at 1024 ft above sea level with a large antenna in the attic.

Untamed Sports is back on WTBS 26.8 and they added 26.11 and 26.12 but nothing on it yet.
Mattswad's Avatar Mattswad 09:21 PM 12-10-2011
Not for me. I checked this afternoon when I read your post and as 11pm on Saturday, 26.7 is still this TV. I found that I can manually enter "30.11" (WTBS 26 is rf/physical channel 30) but when I enter "30.12" it takes me back to "virtual" channel 26.1.

Also France24 (or News 24 as they brand it) is off again and only displaying color bars on both 26.1 and 32.10. So is Jewelry TV on 26.4.

On a somewhat related note, does anyone know what WTHC-LD (The Atlanta Channel) plans on doing with 42.2 and 42.3? They've just recently been on the air but still just displaying color bars. Perhaps they're cashing in on their callsign. I once got stoned and stared at those color bars for three days straight without blinking....it was the BEST SHOW EVER!!!

Anyone else notice that the 11Alive "Weather Information Zone" channel now has no forecast but just a live shot of the radar? It's now rather worthless as you not only do not know what the current temperature is or future temperature is predicted, but you can't tell which way the precipitation is heading because it doesn't "loop" the radar. Thanks, 11Alive, for a wonderful Christmas present akin to a lump of coal in the stocking...

Hey guys - I think I've got the best I can manage, reasonably. But I'd like to bounce this idea off of the Pros.

I installed last week a Channel Master 3010 Stealth antenna on my rooftop in East Atlanta. I used the mast that the previous owner of my home had installed for a satellite. The location on the roof makes visibility to the northwest great, and my reception of everything except WGTV-DT is improved in strength and stability. Overall, this was a great improvement to my service over my old indoor dipole and loop. Since the antenna is lower then the roof ridge, obscuring visibility to the east, is there anything I can do, short of moving the antenna or adding another to get that station back?

I know this station is always the problem, and I don't think there's any simple solution, but maybe I'm overlooking something simple.

Thanks,

Fred

I agree that the current service is a big step back, but I wouldn't judge them too harshly yet. Perhaps they are having an equipment problem and have had to bypass the forecast data etc. Give them a call and ask!

EDIT: as this is disrupting my morning routine, I made the call I talked to Wendy in WXIA's programming dept and she said it is indeed down for just a couple days while they overhaul it. When it comes back it will be new and improved. The reference she had said it would be down for only 2-3 days, so we should see it back really soon, certainly by sometime next week.

Well, that is good news and thanks for finding out. If the service really is new and improved that will be a great Christmas present!

I was channel surfing today, and noticed that my Sony had re-labelled channel 36.3 from "Sports" to "Antenna". Perhaps, soon Antenna TV will be on there. Universal Sports is still on there for the moment, of course.

On the Antenna TV website (antennatv.tv), their interactive map of affiliates shows that Antenna TV will be launching (over-the-air) on WATL 36.3 Atlanta on 12/24/11. We shall see. Stay tuned..

All good to see. I've updated the table / FAQ -- see link in my sig below.

Regarding the new weather channel, a few observations:
- there are more "pages" for each city, so it takes a lot longer to get through them all; in total it takes about 5 minutes to cycle through all 10 or so area cities
- in the interest of getting things to move along faster, they might combine the today/tonight forecast blurbs
- they could also drop the small/left radar view, if they would make the main radar screen animated
- I haven't yet figured out when they run the video segments (regional AccuWeather, national AccuWeather, WXIA local) but I think it's at every 10 minutes or so
- during the video segments, the audio levels are a little low
- the WXIA video segment has 16:9 video squeezed into the 4:3 frame
- clock is accurate

I imagine they'll be tweaking the timing of all this.
Mattswad's Avatar Mattswad 07:06 AM 12-28-2011
Here are the channels I can pick up easily almost any day or night using an old, indoor, "bowtie" antenna, mounted in a good room location within the room, with little to no adjusting necessary--combined with a 20db amp/pre-amp from Radio Shack.

For reference sake: I live in Cliftondale which is unincorporated South Fulton County (I'm sure you've never heard of it but you can look it up on google or an online map to get a better understanding of my distance from the towers and general locale) which is literally the size of a dot on the map. That dot? That's me.

Or for simplistic purposes; I'm 10 minutes west/southwest of the airport in between it and the Chattahoochie. Also inbetween Fairburn & Douglasville.

I live in a hole, surrounded by trees & my tv is in the back corner of a 1 story house....not ideal for viewing! I'm very pleased with the number of channels I get with a total lifetime payment of $80. I used my coupon to get my Zenith 901 converter box and spent 40 bucks on the signal amplifier. (WELL worth the extra 40 for me!) The bowtie antenna came from a friends basement/garage junkpile and proved to be a godsend compared to the 57 pairs of "rabbit ears" I broke searching for signals before stumbling upon the accidental discovery! The old "circle type" 300ohm antennas work pretty much as well too from my little experience.

I'll tell yall the reason behind this big post later...too much typing for now! But I'd take half of the following list over being raped by cable/satelite again! The chord must die!diet

For those of you getting TVGOS, are channels 2.1 and 2.2 working for you?
I have a DTVPal (discontinued unit) and it gets only EPG(?) data for WSB. Wondering if its my device of ROVI.
