Maybe they reduced their power output.

Another bang-up job by WYFX on the MLB All-Star Game. Third year in a row they've had serious signal problems at some point in the broadcast.

I wish someone would buy the FOX affiliate and not try to do this thing on the cheap. The 19.1 channel is so turned down now, I am unable to get my indoor TVs to tune it after it was coming in at full strength 2 months ago. I hope local business stop investing their advertising dollars in this organization.

On September 1st, WTOV will be adding Wheeling's FOX affiliate as a subchannel. I get this signal from Steubenville stronger than the spotty Youngstown 19.1.

Hopefully, WTOV provides that sub-channel as a HD signal.

Fox Ohio Valley (which is a sub channel of WTRF) will be replaced with FOX9, on 9.2. And as soon as all the equipment is installed it will be HD. Hopefully on 9/1, or very soon after that. Both over the air and cable. The equipment has improved to make this possible. Over the air sets will have to re-scan to get this though.

Fox 9 is in HD OTA 720P but on directv it's standard definition 480I. Looks terrible
7 is still broadcasting fox in standard definition
480i.

WTOV FOX 9 is broadcasting SD on Directv. WTRF OTA has removed FOX and has now CBS HD and MyTV and ABC 480i.

Just realized that WYFX has been broadcasting with a random black bar at the top of their picture for over a year now. Most TVs you won't notice it on, but comparing pictures of the same broadcasts from two different FOX affiliates clearly shows there is a black mask of about 20 pixels at the top of the screen.

Huh! I had to set my LG to "JUST SCAN" to see it, but it's there. Usually I leave it on "SET BY PROGRAM" to take advantage of AFD.

Is this on 19.1? Haven't noticed it on 27.2/SD.
