Unfortunately, I'm one of those going without. It brings me some comfort to know others are having the same issue (I thought it had to be on my end).
I have always received digital CBS with a strong signal until 1-22-2007 when it just disappeared. I have no problems with (and get an exceptionally strong signal from) ABC, NBC, FOX, PBS, and the CW.
I plead complete ignorance on the engineering end, so please forgive me in advance - but did run across information about stations in other markets with the same problem. Here a few possibilities to consider (if you haven't already):622 OTA signal loss
"Exciter" used at the transmitter
Condition may be caused by another station's signal, either adjacent channel, co-channel, or some harmonic of a channel that falls into the problem channel's frequency and it might be poor selectivity of the 622's front end that's causing the problem.
Looking forward to watching digital CBS again - Thanks
