No news on Atlanta Based COX what they will do.

The website News Blues reports: "Las Vegas station goes dark following bankruptcy". I'm not convinced this is the end of broadcasting on rf channel 20/ display channel 25. It could be the end for the owners of KTUD, however.


Here's a short local story: http://lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2013/10/10/vegas-tv-signs-off/

KTUD wasted no time in removing their site from the web.

COOL is missing this morning from the blank 34.2 sub-channel of KMCC.

Drawing the short straw Tuesday morning is religious diginet AVIVA. They are not in their pulpit or pew on KGNG 47.2

Elsewhere, analog KGHD-6 is still off-air while their move to the hills above Henderson transpires. KVTE-35 is still silent while their CP continues towards an expiration date. Just when was the last analog transmission from KVTE on channel 35? KTUD- rf 20 /virtal 25 is resting in peace. Some of their fomer programming may migrate to KGNG. Jewelry TV is currently airing on KLSV 50.1 with a PSIP that reads "LATV Feed", while LATV continues airing on KINC 15.2. KBLR 39.3 continues with the colorbars and a "SOI' PSIP, including program data for the diginet that has been gone from Vegas airwaves for 10 months. Colorbars also abound on KEGS 30.1 (former home of Punch), and on KNBX 31.1 (former home of Cubana de Television). K41IO-41 continues to pump most of their signal to a null packet instead of allowing another station to rent that excess bandwidth. And, perhaps finally this morning, KMCC-34 is silent for me at my location in NW Vegas. Anyone is the SE area of Vegas getting a signal from Cranstons' transmitter.

 I am right under the antenna here in Henderson and can report that KMCC (34-1 and 2) are back on the air. They have been having some technical issues last week or so.

KMCC has been having technical issues for more like three years. No signal from them Thursday morning at my locale on either rf/display 34 or alternate display 32.

Welcome to the board Bobwe1. Glad to have your input whenever you feel like it.


KMCC roared back onto my screen in NW Las Vegas over the weekend. Roared may be overstating.

Home Shopping Network is absent from KGNG 47.1 Tuesday morning. For those needing to satisfy their shopping binge, the network is still available on over-the-air analog KGNG channel 6.

By 2 pm, digital 47.1 was returned to service airing Home Shopping Nework on KGNG, while their analog service of the same network was silenced. Parts shortage?

Thursday: For the first time in ages, Las Vegas is without an anolog NTSC tv broadcasters on-air. KGHD-6 and KGNG-47 are both silent, at least temporarily, while KVTE-35 is stalling on their digital conversion. Some programming from the now defunct KTUD-25.1 is starting to show up on KGNG 47.5.

Each station and network handles the semi annual time change differently. Some probably see it as a headache while others see it as an extra hour of revenue in the Fall and an hour of revenue loss in the Spring. I have to tip my hat to History Of Television, the oldies diginet on KNBX 31.3 and 31.4, for being creative. They filled the extra hour with an ID slide.

Religious diginet broadcaster AVIVA has decided to hide its' face today on KGNG 47.2.
post #9040 of 9174
After a little over a week of being silent, analog KGNG channel 47 is back up and airing their normal Home Shopping Network fare. On the digital side of KGNG, AVIVA is also back up on 47.2 after a day of absence.

A new diginet called Dr TV now has a basic website active. It shows that Las Vegas will have an affiliate of the new network. http://drtvchannel.com/affiliates/

Sony's Get TV seems to be stalled out in the pre-launch mode. No news releases and no rumors circulating. The network is up on a few of their affiliates with constant repeats of seemingly public domain movies. When the network does reach an actual launch, you'd think it would be aqualitynetwork simply because Sony has the ownership. Their affiliates are on Univion and Entravision stations around the country. So where is KINC-15 and KELV-27, Entravision stations, in this Get TV puzzle?

Early Thursday morning finds Almavision on KEGS 30.2 held hostage by a DISH network error message. Up the dial, AVIVA on KGNG 47.2 is back into hiding.
post #9044 of 9174
Video1 on KEEN 17.7 was non-operational this Sunday morning.

Monday edit: I assume that Video1 was taken silent to use some piece of hardware on KGNG 47.1. Over the weekend, Home Shopping on 47.1 developed a sync issue. A piece of equipnet from KEEN 17.7 may have solved that issue at the expense of taking Video1 off for a couple of days.

Get TV was rumored to launch in October of this year according to their own website. That didn't happen. A few affiliates are currently airing a pre-launch service of public-domain movies. The English language service is to be carried on Univision sub-channels and those of some Entravision stations. Because of the missed launch dat of October there set in some doubt about the future of the network. Then yesterday I received this brief note from Get TV.

"getTV officially launches February, 2014 and will feature classic movies from the 1930’s through the 1960’s. Curated from Sony’s expansive library of over 3,500 films, getTV will bring back hidden gems and award-winning classics, giving you a new way to experience old favorites."

So the question now is will KINC-15 or KELV-27 be host to the Get TV diginet when it does launch perhaps in February?

Just got a BUNCH of new HD feeds. Most of the extended Premium channels (HBO, SHOW, STRZ, MAX) now have HD feeds for the "2nd tier" channels.

As well I noticed a listing for FXX HD, but I can't get that one to tune in, maybe it's not live yet.

*Disclaimer, I'm using a Windows 8 HTPC with HDHOMERUN Prime + Cable Card.

Cox Communications.

Las Vegas was the last market to receive the Contour HD channels, the last one to have MPEG-4 HD. They now have all the premiums the other market has, FXX, NatGeo Wild, OWN, HLN, TCM, Tennis Channel, BBC America and WE, according to Zap2It.

No, these channels were added additionally to the HD premiums. I didn't list out all the HBO/MAX/Showtime/Starz channels added.

Much clearer. But it does point out why ala carte pricing is resisted by the cable/satellite companies.

They applied for a license for their distributed television system on Wednesday - wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Obidia Porras, the owner of quirky and Franken Las Vegas analog KGHD-6, has sold a Los Angeles market LPTV station for in exccess of 3.35 million. Perhaps some of that money will speed the constriuction of KGHD's digital conversion on channel 38 here.

KVHD Glendale, CA, is/was owned by Obidia Porras. It is a LPTV operation with just uner 10kw of power on rf channel 40 with a display to 26. The station airs 7 video channels and 6 audio channels, mostly religious. Perhaps this is an indication of the future of KGHD Las Vegas.

KMCC 34.1 and 34.2 returned to the air Wednesday morning sometime between 6 am and 8:45 am.

Still silent is KEEN 17.7, KGHD analog 6 /digital 38, and KVTE-35.

The simulcast of KNBX 31.2 onto KGNG 47.8 may be a stopgap until a new service is found.. That explaination also seems to be true for the simulcasts, lease available, or color bars on KTNV 13.2, KHMP 18.3, KHDF 19.2, 19.3, 19.4, KEGS 30.1, 30.3, KNBX 31.1, 31.4, and KBLR 39.3.

This early evening finds KMCC 34.1 and 34.2 are once again silent. KMCC seems to be doing good if they broadcast a full week before hitting the off switch. Elsewhere, KEEN 17.7 is still silent.

KMCC service was restored by 2:45 pm Wednesday.

Are there any Cox subscribers out there who are using a Tivo to receive the new HD channels such as the new HD HBO channels like 1210. I'm not able to get them (I just get a black screen) and I keep getting the run around from the technicians telling me that those channels are only available on Contour boxes and not available for Tivo.

What model of Tivo do you have?

I have Cox in the Phoenix Area, but think the same applies in Las Vegas, only Tivo Premiere 4 and Roamio line of receivers can "see" the Contour channels. They are encrypted in mpeg4 and older Tivo's such as Series 3 and TivoHD can't decode mpeg4 off the tuners in the units.

You might need a tuning adapter.

I have a TivoHD with a tuning adapter. If Charles O is right it sounds like I'm going to to need to upgrade.
