I too have had problems with Rovi changing the names of series slightly, causing missed recordings. I would go with Greasemonkey's suggestion and just edit the old "Sunday Morning" event to "name...

Not quite. 44.3 changed their slide a bit and now includes a Web address: www.zionmediausa.com. Checking that website reveals CBS is also Korean, not Chinese. It didn't reveal what "CBS" stands for...

No telling yet, but all the LPTVs that have to move will have a filing period in early 2018. If they plan to stay on the air after repacking, they'll file a construction permit application then...

Sounds like you just want a remote that works with both the Pal and the Emerson. I'd recommend a Dish 20.1 remote: it works OOTB with the Pal, and even if there's no TV code for Emerson that works,...

I think they can stay until the testing date for the transition phase of the station that's displacing them. They know that's coming, of course; there's supposed to be a filing window early in 2018...

Probably not too useful, unless you want to convert a DVR+ disk to a more widely supported format like NTFS (either for posterity or for migration to an NTFS-supporting recorder/player like an...

I don't think this is related to the repack. The repack may affect how Comcast will get some OTA stations' signals, but it won't affect how they rebroadcast them to you.

Sounds more like a Rovi...

It sounds like J-D-H's disks are all 2TB or less, so they should format fine with any firmware version. But to re-emphasize what's been learned about using larger HDDs with the DVR+:

Many folks have complained about the tuners in the DVR+. The DVR+ works fine in my environment, but others have noted more problems with multipath when using the DVR+ than when using the DTVPal.

Probably not much, unless antenna makers come out with new UHF models optimized for the narrower bandwidth of the repacked UHF band. But I haven't even seen antennas optimized for RF 14-51 - pretty...

OK, so to spell out the "easy" case a little more explicitly, none of the stations above RF 36 could have moved directly to 27 because their omnidirectional radiation patterns would have interfered...

Yeah, I guess if you buy a "portfolio" of investments, some will pay off big even if others (like KFWD in this case) tank. As long as you get more out than you put in, you're gonna think you were...

31 is back! 50 is still on the air as of tonight, but will be going away soon after they get their money from the auction, and I think 22's analog signal is history. KZFW/6's FrankenFM signal seems...

Man - KFWD is staying on the air?? I'm very surprised. Looks the bozos who bought the station in hopes of making a killing in this auction got exactly what they deserved: zero.
