For those having problems with KTSC you might want to give it a look. The SD on 12-1 is far better than KTSC.
I just happened to notice it when I was scanning channels on a new HTPC I'm building. I had gotten these channels intermittently before from their Denver feed. The SD on 12-1 is far better than KTSC.
Interesting. I wonder how their programming compares to RMPBS, I'll have to look at the schedules. Wonder if they will do any OTA HD broadcasting in the future. When I lived in Ft Collins back 90-92, their programming was better than Ch 6. But that was then, this is now and I haven't looked into their schedule since it was hard to get here.
Also, GatoViejo uses a small dish (1m class) satellite system for receiving PBS off their Ku-Band satellite feed. If all you were interested in was PBS, I'll bet you could put one of those up and no one (Homeowner Assn) would be the wiser. They'd probably think it was a DirecTV or Dish system.
