Any chance you could get me a quick HTML Export of WRAZ with M/H? I'll be trying to decode it myself, but who knows if I'll get it in the near future.

Thanks. Good thing you told me which address; I never check that one.

I just got setup with one of the Samsung HD DVRs and I am trying to get it set up with my surround sound system. I'm using the hdmi out for the sound and it seems like it is extremely quiet, is this typical?
post #13205 of 15283
Tropo brought me WRAL/WRAZ/WRDC/WLFL tonight. Looks like WRAZ shut off the MH for the moment and WRAL bumped up the bitrate on it slightly.

I'm using the optical out (no HDMI switching in the receiver) in the Samsung DVR and it seems to not have that problem.
I was hoping the Samsung DVR would operate better than the SA/Cisco boxes. The larger HD is a welcome addition. The rest, well, not so much better.

Anyone been through the TWC channel switch yet with a Cablecard device?

How did things go?

Yup.... 3 TiVo's. Loads of fun. I finally have all three working OK.

I have a Tivo HD with a multistream cable card. Here is what I had to do to get myself back up and running.

1. Power Down/Up the Tivo and Tuning Adapter
2. Repeat the Guided Setup procedure on the Tivo
3. Redo a bunch of my Season Passes because the Tivo did not lock in to the correct channels.

After the above, I'm back up and a-ok. Step #3 was the pain the butt one...

One of my units (a THD) was that easy. The other two units (S4P and S3) were a nightmare.... hanging and rebooting.. hanging while acquiring channels... lost OTA channels... etc etc.

I had a cable tech out today to replace a problematic CC in my Moxi, but since the replacement card was broken (gotta love CCs!) they rescheduled next week.

They suggested I wait until after the channel switch just in case that caused other problems. I can't wait to see what havoc the channel switch wreaks.

At least TWC waited until prime TV season was over.

Can anyone tell me why my picture is bouncing like crazy on a ton of channels? It's so annoying.,

I have a Moxi with a cablecard and it actually went fairly smoothly. I found the old channel listing still there with the new channels on the guide with just their call letters. I went to moxi.com and switched to "Digital Rebuild", rebooted the Moxi, and everything came back fine. The Moxi retained all my scheduled series and picked them all up on the new channels. Easier than I expected.

Anyone seeing WTNC-LD 40 on the air? It's probably mapping to 26-x. If so, is TeleFutura in HD and Univision in SD, or what is the configuration?

post #13216 of 15283
No go on anything besides the full power stations at the farm and WUNC /WUNP / WRPX. I'm not even getting the old WKFT 40 right now. The last time I did, they had 2 subchannels (-1 and -2) one was univision and one was telefutura.

I am getting Univision in 1080i on WUVC-DT (virtual 40.1, physical 38.1, 617 MHz).

I watched part of one of world cup games this morning before work. This is the first time I've watched anything in HD on Univision. The HD quality seemed quite bad for fast motion. Not as bad as NBC17's 2004 Olympics, but close. Do they have a low b/w feed, bad encoder settings, or what?

WUVC-DT 38 (40-1) has been around for a while, but only went HD this year. I'm looking for WTNC-LD 40 (26-1 I think) which should be in the Durham area. They filed a license covering app which means the station should now be on the air digitally.

As for the HD picture quality, I was hearing complaints in other local threads and apparently the PQ is just as bad on the Mexican stations from across the border, so the assumption is that it's a problem with the raw feed.

Interesting... I lost 40.1/2 the other day as well. Granted, I was only barely getting it anyway... but it dropped for me and I wondered if it was me OR if something had changed.

The 40.2 (38.2) subchannel is identified as "WTNC-LP". It is Telefutura in 480i. Is that what you are looking for?
post #13222 of 15283
No. I'm looking for the actual WTNC-LD transmitter. Should be on actual channel 40, displayed as possibly channel 26-1.

Has anyone in the Raleigh area had any problems with their scheduled series recordings after going through the TWC channel switch?

We get it tomorrow night and I just realized that I have 33 series recordings. Some of which are in place to catch reruns of shows that aren't active right now. This keeps me from needing to constantly check to see if a show coming back again as a rerun or if a marathon is scheduled. If I lose these series recordings due to the channel switch I won't be able to reschedule them until I see the show come back on the schedule.
post #13224 of 15283
Take pictures of your scheduled recordings list, just in case. Does anyone k ow if TWC keeps the guide data and virtual channel assignments in differerent database files? As I understand it, TWC is only changing the virtual channel assignments. I assume that he guide data is ties to either the actual channel or to a channel name code like zap2it's???? I have heard of a few people losing scheduled recordings, and it doesn't make sense if tue databases are constructed correctly.

Other channels, when recorded have no such issues.

I have been using an external 500G SATA drive for many months with no issues.

Any hunches?

Gary in Cary

I too am still seeing the same issue on my 8300HDC and my 8240HDC. Are the Samsung or newer Cisco DVR models seeing the same issue? Anyone else besides Gary & I seeing similar? I too am in Cary, but would think that it would not be localized to that level.

I do not have any external drives, and only see lag/response time issues for 1105 (WRAL-HD). The same was occurring before the remap, when WRALHD was 255, but after the new Navigator image was loaded.

Thoughts? Helpful hints?

Scheduled series came through the conversion just fine, in fact, recordings from before the switch over show the new channel number.

What is that method that TWC uses to combine channels for bandwidth so they can pack more channels into the same bandwidth. I think they use it for local channels like Holly Springs channel 11 and I think there is a Cary one also. All I can think of it is like overbooking for plane reservations.

Compression. Reduction of bit rate. Last time I checked, the locals were not compressed below OTA rates.

Yep, same here. Surprisingly easy.

I'm glad the Moxi network logos are so big because trying to remember all those new 4-digit channel assignments is a pain.
post #13230 of 15283
SCsiraid,

It was called switched video or something like that. They mux some channels and borrow bandwidth from Cable channels no one is watching or at least that is what I thought.

Another Question:

I was looking at the Antenna mounting portion of my Channel Master CM7777 Titan2 VHF/UHF TV Antenna Preamplifier with Power Supply (CM-7777) - I see it is not water proof. Aluminum case with a screwed in recessed circuit board. How does it keep water out with no seals?
