KELO 11.[1-3] EPG program descriptions (No information available on the program.).

For several weeks KELO 11.[1-3] has broadcast a sub-standard EPG. Time and program title display but program description is either delayed or non-existent.

To explain, if I change to a KELO...

If I remember correctly, the Argus article was correct at the time as an FCC mandate required stations to convert to DTV later in 2015. However, I believe that mandate was suspended so they never...

No, and I just scanned. I've not received KCPO for most of 2016. The only analog channel I receive is 33 and that's very seldom.

I'm running out of theories here. Your report indicates the problem is KMEG, not Sinclair. That gets me back to my original post where KMEG replied they don't air captions on 14.3 as those programs...

That seems to indicate the problem is Sinclair. I assume the FCC is aware of this.

Tenspeed also reported he sees captioning on 14.2. I don't know why I thought it was lacking but for "Through...

I'm still confused. Do we know whether "Decades" and "Comet" provide captioning to KMEG? Do Decades and Comet have common ownership? Does Sinclair have ownership of either?

How do you know Decades is including captioning. If that's the case, KMEG chooses to not air captioning for "The Twilight Zone" but does for "Decades." Actually, it's probably Sinclair that makes...

I thought so. It seems even more unlikely as we're talking networkS. 14.2 is Decades while 14.3 is Comet. But perhaps they're different networks of the same group.

I mailed the station with a...

KMEG and captioning on 14.[2-3]?

KMEG isn't including captioning on channels 14.[2-3]. They're aware of the situation and defend it.

Aren't all DTV channels required to provide captioning with their signal?

Channels 20[1-4] have broadcast an OTA EPG time about six minutes slow since last fall. I've written four times and phoned twice. It doesn't seem unreasonable to expect the correct time. Two...

Channel 42 has again begun broadcasting RetroTV. I assume it's KCPO and the signal appears more dependable than a month or so ago. Time will tell.

My guess is KWSD did, but as KCPO hasn't broadcast for some time, might they have as...

HDTV/HiDef/bandwidth auctions

I understand some OTA stations may be auctioning their spectrums. If I understand correctly, that may lead to stations sharing a spectrum.

Can one spectrum support multiple HiDef broadcasts? ...

Thank you. I've been trying to get that confirmation for months. I didn't know if the problem was on my end. The Argus includes KCPO 26 in its listings. I've written them but will try again.

Yes, RetroTV airs "Mystery Science Theater." That's KCPO's push to be carried on cable on their crawl.
