If ANYONE still subscribes to this thread, WTKR has finally (?) added a second channel. They are now carrying the "this tv" diginet on 3-2 OTA...

Based on the quality of the SEC championship game the new sub channel is causing wtkr to look like wavy. Compression and pixelation all over the place with fast movement. Yuck.

Thanks, Bob. Check it every day, and every once in a while it turns up a nugget like this. Passed it on to the LOL up the block who gets all her TV OTA. When forced onto the generator, I always rescan first thing when shifting to OTA. I never took down my antenna when cable first became available to me.

I just tried a rescan on the TV in the den and am not getting 3-2 (I am getting 3-1). When I get a chance I'll try the TV in the other room and see (I think it's tuner is a little more sensitive).

It was so bad that if regular TV shows are anything like it I will be watching OnDemand strictly for CBS. It was unwatchable with fast motion. Think of WAVY's blockiness x about 1,000. NFL yesterday was the same way.

Well, just ran the TSReader on WTKR during Denver/SD NFL game and was surprised... 3-1 is getting 15Mbps (static) and "this tv" on 3-2 is getting 2.64Mbps (static)...
