Still wonder why WTVA won't pull in. WLOV is full signal as well as WCBI.

In your market the 2 stations you mention are on UHF which I think the Mohu is designed for. WTVA is on VHF8 (remaps to 9) and I wonder if the Mohu works for that?

Do you get WMAB (PBS)? Reason is that is also on VHF (10...remaps to 2)

Yes we are pulling in WMAB with no issues all day today. Previously it never came in with any of my other antennas.

From the Mohu site:
Quote:
The Ultimate - An amplified powered indoor TV antenna with Clean Peak filter technology that removes unwanted RF signals and boosts the ones you want for the more difficult locations. Nothing like it on the market! Also with USB powering option and 16 ft. cable. Range is about 50 miles for UHF and 20 miles for VHF. Additional 5 dB gain than the Leaf Plus and improved filtering technology make it the best Leaf yet.

I'm 23-25 miles from the WTVA towers.

The reviews I've heard say that the Mohu is not very good at VHF. That would explain the missing WTVA. WMAB is probably just closer and thus overcomes the Mohu's poor VHF performance.

Makes sense. WMAB is closer, 15 miles versus 23. Might go the diplexer route later. I have to wean the wife of satellite first.

Oddly enough I moved the Mohu up a foot and PBS comes in like a champ.

Now if they could just get it "Over the Satellite" so I can stop paying extra for CW out of New York cause I can't have an OTA antenna at my location.

I emailed the general manager of WCBI about having the CW in HD on DirecTV. His response was that I need to contact DirecTV about having it added. I would advise everyone else to do the same as well.

What you will love is when you call Direct or Dish, they will tell you that, by the decision of the local affiliate, they were unable to offer the CW, however they would be glad with the submission of a release by the local station to offer you WPIX (on Dish) out of New York for an additional charge.

Its a mad circle.

<i>WTVA-TV is getting a new owner.

After 57 years with the Spain family, the NBC and ABC affiliate is being acquired by Heartland Media, LLC and MSouth Equity Partners.

The deal was announced this afternoon.

Heartland Media already owns four stations — an NBC affiliate in Utica, New York, and ABC affiliates in Eugene, Medford and Klamath Falls, Oregon.</i>

One can only wonder what changes will be in store....

WCBI is having transmitter trouble again. I hope they can work with Directv to get a direct fiber feed in place one of these days.

Slightly OT but I saw Bill Gamel in Starkvegas tonight walking around downtown in Alabama gear.

Out of curiosity which stations' CBS station did DirecTV pick up for WCBI customers until the problem is corrected?

For the game they picked up WJTV - They cut the feed at 3 min to 7. Only carried it in SD on DISH due to bandwidth.
