I'm trying to determine how much to attribute to the station being really strong, vs the Zenith's new 8vsb chip being really good, vs the WinTV-D being really bad...
Very interesting...I'm running a WinTV-HD receiver here and I'd be interested to see the difference you get between the two receivers. I get channel 32 with no difficulty; basically a piece of wire will work. Even on the small yagi that I can rotate, I cannot find a spot where it will not lock up perfect.
I've noticed that the software (WinTV2000) has a problem with displaying the signal strength, so I cannot give an actual number. (It displays 22.4dB all the time)
It seems to pick up the other (ch18) DTV channels pretty good, and the analogs appear fine, so I can't explain your Win cards problem.
Channel 12 has a translator on Channel 11 somewhere in the Boulder area.
This is also news to me...It must be fairly low powered as the only signal I can get on 11 is the station out on Colorado Springs. Nothing (analog) else is on 11 at this time at my location...
Thanks for the new thread...
