Turned on my TV in the kitchen this morning which is just direct connected for clear QAM channels and NECN which has been clear QAM on channel 70-112 (and another for several years before that but can't recall) no longer comes in and just says "Scrambled".

Anyone know what gives? Despite the fact that it's a royal PITA since the tuner picks up hundreds of bogus clear QAM channels I have to manually weed out, I re-scanned just now and it is indeed gone.

Not that I watched it all that much lately (definitely gone way down hill over the last year or two) but it was nice to have a 24 hour news choice in there since I'm not paying a monthly fee for a set that gets used during morning coffee and that's about it. Actually the *entire* news scene in Boston has gotten much worse recently IMO, but that's a whole different topic....

This is because NECN is no longer part of the Local Tv only tier. This may had been done as a condition of the retransmission consent for WBTS. You can still get it on Ch 513

Lip Sync Issue

Anyone else having a lip sync problem? i'm seeing it on all channels, using a 7232 but even see it when watching on my tv that is connected directly (for viewing local qam channels). Currently watching the NESN wrap up of today's game on 576 thru the cable box and Tom Caron who's a quick speaker makes it really apparent. Never had this issue before.

sounds like an issue with your TV. Try another non fios source such as a DVD?
