WPCW has been known for a variety of technical issues OTA over time (the Pittsburgh thread is filled with such reports). OTOH, I've been seeing erratic PQ on several ABB channels of late. I have...

Just FYI, the NBC station is WJAC (6.1, 6.2, 6.3; RF 22). WTAJ is the CBS station (10.1; RF 32). Their respective transmitters ( as well as that of WATM, the ABC and FOX stations (23.1, 23.2,...

The picture on 76 fills the screen, but they're not yet sending metadata, so I cannot tell what resolution is used. It would not shock me to see more HD channels real soon, as ABB has recently...

Newsmax showed up on chan 76 this morning but was dropping in and out. I guess they are still tweaking and adjusting.
As for the big Grit logo, I guess they want to build viewer identification. The...

Johnstown, PA - HDTV

The station and cable company contract for carriage of the broadcast signal, not the content. They can negotiate for some or all subchannels, or a broadcaster can opt for "must carry" of the main...

The TV Fool report is a far better resource than the AntennaWeb one. You should be able to pull in WJAC's Altoona transmitter (RF 22). That will give you NBC, MeTV, and Grit TV. WPSU (RF 15) is in...

Antenna TV has not yet been added to the official ABB lineup (via set top boxes) so I have not yet seen that feed. I have sampled 23.4 OTA a few times and PQ has been adequate, but I have not...

The STB message system announces the migration of CSPAN from 98 to 113. No Antenna as of yet, but I expect it will show up in the next few days.

As of today (4/10/15) WJACDT3 is listed in the STB guide, but the channel is not yet active. That appears to be normal procedure. I would give it a day or two; they will certainly meet or beat their...

That's interesting. GRIT is not yet active via STB on channel 112. I would expect the slot to be opened a few days before launch.

Are you watching through a HD set top box? Or tuning in the separate HD versions of those channels (WJAC 85.3, WTAJ 77.1, etc)?
