What message does 15-2 need? Antenna tv would be good or Me-tv would be better. Boy's put your blackberries down for a minute and quit texting your pals and listen to a starving market here for decent broadcasting programs. How many more weather radar channels are needed that burn their static images on our tv screens?

At 10:50 on Face the Nation, during the Chaney interview, 15-1 started beating on Mr. Chaney's image. Political or technical?

FYI, I'm getting that issue OTA and through my Directv box.

About to make me throw up! Had to change the channel...audio is working fine though, FYI.

Working again.

Part of me wants to vomit: other part of me says this brings back memories from years ago.

As you can tell, since it happened again during the Colts game, it wasn't political when it happened during Face the Nation.

We had not 1 but 2 devices partially fail during Face the Nation. Sadly by the time it took me to drive in during Face the Nation it cleared itself up and I couldn't find it. As luck would have it, I stayed at the station until the Colts kicked off and headed for home and made it 10 minutes from the station and it popped off again.

We found the intial problem quickly and bypassed it but didin't find problem number 2 until we replaced problem 1.

We think we have it whipped right now. Sorry the game looked awful in spots (and that isn't referencing the Colts in any way!)

Shouldn't 15.2 have had a new programming planned before they pulled the plug on cool-tv for advertising sake? is anything even lined up and set in stone?

The contract might have not allowed it. If the contract with CoolTV expired, then they would be required to yank it, even if the replacement service isn't ready to go yet.

Any word on the Dish - MyFox negotiations?

One benefit of the dispute/delay is that it got me to hook up an OTA antenna to my Dish receiver. On Monday I was able to flip between football and baseball on the Dish, while recording House OTA. Sweet!
post #4060 of 4216
Is anyone else having audio problems on Fox? The surround speakers are outputting the same thing as the center channel but there is a slight delay. It's really distracting and makes it hard to follow what people are saying.

Amen, for those w/o antennas, hope so too. Mine is staying forever.

I know I'll be the only one on the board saying it, but man do I miss The Cool TV. They had a random mix of music that you can't find on the radio, and I don't have a computer out near the kitchen to listen to online streams.

Do we have any idea yet when something might be on 15-2?

Maybe they're trying to sell it to Granite?

anyone else have problems with MyFox last night during the World Series Saturday night? My signal had intermittent dropouts all throughout the game. The only lasted a split-second, but it was annoying to say the least. I switched between antenna and satellite, but the problem was there on both sides.

Seeing it right now during FOX NFL Sunday. Can't believe its gone on that long without someone noticing it and fixing it. I'll send a message here to the engineer and see if we hear from him.

We are aware of the issue and trying to track it down.
post #4071 of 4216
trying to watch the World Series on My Fox is just painful. The signal is not as good as it used to be when it was on channel 55. It kind of passes for HD, but not very good HD. If I look close enough, it looks just a little fuzzy. Certainly not clear HD!!!

Dual HD does not look good at all. Is it both channels (NBC & Fox),or just one of them (NBC or Fox)? in Chicago WLS-TV 7.2 is the one that looks horrible while 7.1 looks ok (both are 720p HD). WYIN in Gary overall looks horrible because they have older CODEC's, & they're running dual 720p HD on 56.1 & 56.2, plus run 2 widescreen SD channels.

We changed out an encoder. We have been having trouble with the encoders that we use on the FOX feeds. Hopefully this will permantly correct the issue.
post #4075 of 4216
An announcement will be forthcoming shortly about 15.2. Couple details had to be ironed out non-engineering wise. Thanks for your patience.
post #4076 of 4216
Jeff,
Audio from WXJ-58 on 15.3 has been noisy most of the day. All 3 of my WX receivers are receiving good audio. You may want to check your RX, feed or antenna. Jim

Pixellization seen on FOX 34 during the 4:15 NFL game over the DirecTV channel 34 feed. Switched to OTA and saw no issues.

Pixellization seen on channel 33 WISE feed on DirecTV tonight during NFL pregame. No pixellization on the OTA Feed.

Good Luck!!

We are aware of this and have already been in contact with DirecTV. This is unrelated to the issue we had last week. DirecTV has told us that they are working on this issue.

Thanks Jim. We are wiring in our new EAS system and the NOAA cable got loose. Static should be gone at this point.

Is this the way Fox HD on 33.2 looks all the time now that it has to share the same bandwidth with NBC HD on 33.1?

I'm currently watching and comparing PQ from WISE and WFWA here in Indy (94 miles) on a 60" HDTV. I noticed that 33.1 is still 1080i and 33.2 is 720p. And I just realized that WFWA's HD on 39.1 is still 1080i while also feeding three subchannels. Other area PBS stations with 2-3 subchannels, like WFYI-Indy, WTIU-Bloomington and WIPB-Muncie have all switched to 720p. At the moment, WISE and WFWA are not broadcasting any HD programming so I can't compare what a true HD broadcast looks like. Thanks.

Steve
