Is it just me, or has WMDO-LD 8 been off the air since Tuesday 4/28? Just asking in case this is them completing their relocation to channel 22.

I know, I'm just saying that the network does exist that has that programming. WNET just hasn't seen fit to make it available to the whole audience.

Mako is taking the national Retro TV satellite feed (as far as I know) and as such if there was such a problem on Luken's end, other areas would be complaining about it.

WTOO-CD should be mapping to 50-1. If it's mapping to 23-1 or missing PSIP entirely, it's violating FCC rules.

WTOO-CD can be on RF23 because WATM is on RF24, not RF23. As long as it doesn't...

Believe it or not, as best I can tell, the rules don't actually require LPTV to use even static PSIP unless there's a channel conflict with a full-power or Class A station. But so many tuners do...
