I hear that TouchVision shut down. If that is so, what's on 48-2 now?

Seems to be still running. Just did a quick tune and saw Felonious Munk. Maybe running repeats for a bit?

Saw this on Wikipedia:
According to a statement from a Crain's Chicago Business article, TouchVision would end all on-air operations on January 14, 2016.[7] Programming ceased at 11:59 PM CT on January 14, 2016.[8]

It's fine here in Geneva, very little break-ups so far.

Ok this is super weird but i was checking devices in my house and when i'm watching CBS i was messing with game systems in my house and i noticed when i put my sons PS4 in his room in rest mode in his room that is when CBS goes out? turn PS4 on or completely off CBS is fine?

Now my antenna and its boost are above my room next to his and powered from outlet above his room. What kind of interference could the PS4 in sleep mode be causing and this never happened before until recently. had the PS4 since launch and always used rest mode.

i was able to duplicate this over and over again.

Weigel-backed TV outlet TouchVision shutters
By Lynne Marek

TouchVision, the TV brand backed by Weigel Broadcasting, is shutting down, eliminating as many as 40 employees at the upstart Chicago outlet.

Angus Robertson, chairman of TouchVision parent Think Televisual, notified staff today in a meeting that it would pull the plug on the broadcasts, said Justin Allen, who was vice president of content and operations for Think Televisual. The other half of the Think Televisual staff will remain to work on Weigel projects, but Allen and those devoted to TouchVision are out..

Anyone else having poor reception problems and signal break ups on CBS 2.1 today? It appears to be going on since early this morning.

Just wanted to report (in case someone is debating an antenna) that I installed a Winegard HD7694P antenna in my attic in Mount Prospect and have perfect reception, picking up 74 channels.

Main goal was getting CBS, and this has come in perfect so far.

The audio on channel 11 during the Chicago Tonight show was on the right channel only last month. For the last week or so its in stereo but the right and left channels drift and change places. It only happens during that show and nowhere else. anyone else getting this? I can only take a minute or so before shutting it off.

I don't recall this, although I think we usually watch Prime or Create subchannels (11.2, 11.3).

Can anyone help please?

I'm in Indiana just across the border. Approx 38 miles from the antenna towers.

Installed a MOHU SKy 60 in the rafters in the attic. It's ran to an amplified 4 way Channel Master splitter in the basement. Two basement TV's, and the 2nd floor TV work flawlessly. The main floor TV is a Samsung TV, about 6 years old. The signal either pixelates or drops out entirely exactly every two minutes?
I've actually timed it. Every two minutes.
I'm also using a amp that came with the MOHU at this particular TV. If I use it or not I get the same results.

48.2, RF32; I think the call letters are WMEU.  You'll need another responder if you want to know whether the license is LP or Class A, as I don't know how to tell the two apart.

For now, it looks like 48.2 is just airing repeats of 'You & Me' during the day, and 'Green Screen Adventures' in the morning.
