Yes have seen it a few times here in west part of Garland. Haven't watched any program, but looks to be solid. KSTR (RF 48) has been among the strong solid signals here.

Antenna is an old Radio Shack Area Special at 29 ft AGL. Distance ~28 miles, LOS.

Thanks tripelo for the input. I finally got it to come in after another rescan. I am watching a John Wayne movie right now. The signal is very clear even though faces seem a little distorted. I think this may be something with the aspect ratio and the way the signal is being brodcast by Grit TV. Overall it looks good though and thanks again.

~30 miles NNW of Cedar Hill, using Mohu 50 w/o amp (2 ft above ground) and can get KSTR in the green as well.

Like I said, I have seen Grit a little bit and am looking forward to many more of their flicks! (Let's hope for an aspect ratio fix soon.)

Yes you are right. So much for "Antenna TV". Looks like KDAF is determined to ruin it. Their on screen clutter is too bright and obnoxious.

Syndicated programming changes in DFW, starting September 1.

Dr. Oz moves to KDFW at 2pm.

WFAA plugs in the hole left by Dr. Oz and Katie with The Insider at 2pm, Inside Edition at 2:30, and a full hour of Family Feud at 3. KDAF still has a full hour of Family Feud at 12pm, so I don't know what kind of deal they have.

KDAF plugs the hole left by Arsenio Hall with The Simpsons and Two and a Half Men.

KTXD gets Access Hollywood Live at 6pm.

More changes to come as September rolls on.

Just surfed around the full-powered dial tonight.

I noticed that KMPX 29-2 is now showing color bars (same pattern as the STILL inactive KLEG 44-2) in lieu of Inmigrante TV. Problems? Or could Liberman be scouting for another network to go on this slot? (FYI, Inmigrante's website [accessible via the Inmigrante TV Wikipedia page] shows the Dallas affiliate as KAZD 55-3, but they're still an infomercial channel as of tonight.)

And speaking of KAZD, 55-4 is still showing the "For Lease" slate. Maybe "Launch TV" has thrown in the towel? Anybody want to "launch" their own "TV network" on this slot? ( *pun intended*)

Wow, all this updating. I feel like rdvegas from the Las Vegas forum.

Inmigrante TV was on 55-3 many moons ago. Guess they never updated their website.

Edit: It's back on 29-2 this evening.

Oh, must have been technical difficulties on Inmigrante's part then.

WOW! Does that mean KTXA will have 2 FULL HOURS of game shows on weekdays? Too bad the 2nd Millionaire will conflict with the ever-popular Wheel of Fortune on CBS 11, however.

So that means WFAA is the odd one out in terms of game shows now that they're getting "the Feud," huh? (The CBS O&Os are the clear winners with Wheel, Jeopardy, Millionaire, Deal, and Price!)
