Did Fox 17, Channel 50, and Channel 5 increase their tower power last night? I was getting 90% signal quality off of these stations here in Fayetteville, TN. I've tried numerous times in the past to acquire these stations to no avail. This morning around 8:30 I tried these stations and they were working fine, but I just tried them about 9:10 and they're not coming in at all. Could it be the increase in power in the early morning and late evening or could it be the fact of atmospheric conditions, or the fact that there is less activity on these frequencies during these times of the day and therefore they have nothing interfering with them? Also, I was getting 90% signal on channel 21 which is UPN 30 out of Nashville on my Voom Box, but everytime I tried to scan in channels it would make a momentary pause on RF 21 and then progress onto the others without adding that channel in. Is this a problem with my box or could it be that the signal was messed up on the data portion that the box uses or that the PSIP data that the station is sending out is corrupted and therefore the stream cannot be translated into a channel? I don't believe it is the box since I tried it on both of my Voom receivers and they both responded in the same manner. Also, on channel 8 at RF 46 I was getting a strong signal but neither box could add it in on channel scan, even though it is already added in on one but I wanted it on the other since my reboot the other day lost that channel for some reason. Could it also have bad PSIP transmission or could it be that the portion of the signal that this data is on is corrupted and the box sees a signal on that frequency but cannot get a translation due to that? By the way, I'm using two Voom receivers on one 8-bay antenna with a pre-amp installed and a line distribution amplifier with only the signal being split once for each individual line that goes to the antenna portion of the boxes. Also, there is no duplex at either box splitting the signal again since the satellite lines from the LNB are totally separate from the antenna lines.
Thanks for any help guys on this issue.
