Anyone in Akron Ohio with a OTA STB?

Wondering what channels anyone in Akron Ohio is getting with a OTA STB, maybe can offer some help even?

I live about 20 miles south of Akron, but I work in downtown Akron. At my home I can get digital versions of 3, 5, 8, 19. 43 is just starting to come on the air, but I have not been able to get it the last few days. Also, in the last few days, channel 3 has started multi-casting. On digital channel 3.1 they have HDTV, on 3.2 they have the normal channel, and on 3.3 they have radar. This seems like a very, very bad idea, because it is decreasing the quality of the 3.1 HDTV channel.

I have an outside antenna about 20 ft. up.

Anything else you want to know?

That about sums it up, thanks Ken.

43 seems to back on the air today, some breakups but is working now. Far as channel 3 the format changed some, it fills the 16x9 screen a bit better now and seems to have cleared up a little.

PBS emailed me back today and said sometime mid-2003 they might be on air with their DTV broadcast, I guess thems the channels we will get for now.

TWC has an appointment to bring a HDTV cable box today so will see if that works out, if not we are gonna just drop cable altogether, easy getting spoiled with the DTV even with a limited number of shows sure cuts down channel surf time realising there aint nothing on TV-heheh


Thanks again Ken for replying.

Uhm, not sure if its the sampo 34" or maybe the squirrels chewing on the wires but this hd cable box from twc is horrible, definitely not worth the wait. I think I better stick to OTA and DVD till a better box is available, unless DSS is all that and a bag a chips.
