Great another channel I can not receive. They promised to up the power years ago. Never happened. How many people can actually receive channel 42?
post #16412 of 17105
WKOB is indeed a waste, hardly anyone can get that station.

As for subchannels, I'd expect they actually garner ratings. Also, they are cheap for the stations. Remember, there's a ton of people now, mainly seniors, who have digital receivers, no cable, only. So they like those old shows and movies. I have FIOS, and I still watch ThisTV a lot, they have many movies you never see otherwise.

MeTV? I don't think so... Well at least, unless you are in a fringe area, as I think there is a CT affilliate that can be picked up in some locations in the NY Metro Area...

ThisTV is on WPIX-DT3... 11.3
fyi, AntenntaTV is on WPIX-DT2... 11.2

Cheers!

This TV is available over broadcast WPIX-DT3 New York, which is carried by FiOS.

MeTV is available on a limited schedule over WZME Bridgeport, channel 42/virtual channel 43-1, which is carried by some pay TV providers. There is also a direct 24/7/365 feed via the Time Warner Cable system in New York City.

WKOB-LD New York is no longer broadcasting RTV, and hasn't been for well over a year. It is, however, carried over WZME, virtual channel 43-2.

I read somewhere that Soul of the South Network will debut on 1/21/13 on a tv station in SC. Does anyone know if this is true, and if so, will it be available in the NYC market?

"Soul of the south" would hardly have mass appeal in this market even if its something you may personally want.

got an alert last night on my Tivo's that new channels were added. ION added another subchannel, ShopTV 31.4

WHPX-TV channel 26 of New London, CT added the same thing not too long ago. I think 26-4 is just a west coast feed of what's on 26-3 already (same for 31-3 and 31-4 for you).
post #16423 of 17105
Quick question...which local station has the best audio and picture quality? CBS used to own it but NBC and Fox have the best. ABC is the worst.
post #16424 of 17105
I'd say NBC.. when the local news comes on the set looks amazing in HD.. CBS used to be good but not so much anymore

Oh Ok thanks. I believe this is their website

http://shoptv.com/

Looks like you are right according to Titantv

Maybe it is a different company website then the TV channel.

42-1 Color bars,nothing else
42-2 Daystar christian broadcast
43-3 Punch TV ,shows in color and b&w, educational etc
43-4 WizeBuy HTV shopping ch. informmecials
42-5 SunBroadcating Corp. Jimmy Swaggart
42-6 AlmaVis chriatian probably Spanish, off the air
All 6 streams are 704x480i 30 Hz Dolby Stereo, English except AlmaVission, I think when 42-5 and 42-3 have money then it runs, last week maybe one day it ran, otherwise it is off the air, this week for couple days it was running, the reason you may not get it is that it is off the air

Does Tivos still work off of the phone line? Is there any reason to use the internet instead of the phone line?

The older, discontinued Tivo series 3 and HD have a built in phone modem, but the current Premiere hardware does not, you have to purchase their optional phone adapter: http://www.tivo.com/products/tivo-accessories/dvr-networking/index.html#A00903

if you already have internet service, why would you want to use a phone line? specifically for tivo, its fully functional when connected to the internet. without it, you cant use the HD menus (premiere series only), you cant transfer or stream recordings to other tivos on your network or to your computer, you cant transfer video files or pictures to the tivo from your computer using the Tivo Desktop software, you cant use the iOS or android companion app, you cant use netflix, hulu+, youtube, pandora, spotify etc, and you will lose the ability to do fast scheduling on the tivo.com website. You also wont be able to use the Tivo add-on called the Tivo Stream which allows you to watch live tv on your iphone or ipad in the home or transfer recordings to the device for viewing on the bus or what not.

if you use the phone option, you will be forces to use their older SD menus and lose the ability to all of the above. Guide data and software updates will be done in the middle of the night and take significantly longer.

I give him credit for trying. He did not simply give up like a lot of people. We have to sometimes bitch, whine etc to make the media and network folks notice us OTA users!

Thanks many just give up and take the easy route. Then attack people for trying while they sit and do nothing. What if you are elderly and do not have internet? Although PSIP is better then nothing. It is a downgrade. I will never again buy any product that has Rovi in it. That is a promise. The people that verbally attack on this board and others. Sit and do nothing. It is easy to be a Monday nite quarterback.

Just because you are outnumbered and do not have a reasonable chance of winning. Does not mean you should not fight.

The box now uses PSIP 6 hours to a couple of days of guide info. Most of the guide says NO INFORMATION

If you do not have internet you are out of luck

Keyboard,

Not quite out of luck if you don't have internet. You still have the Sunday papers and some if not all provide a weekly program guide (Star Ledger for one) and also the TV Guide magazine is still available. You could buy TV guide every week or get a subscription.

Well I think she will not do that. She will use me to look it up on the internet. It is cheaper.

On a positive note. TVGOS disappeared a few days before I made a visit. So I was able to disable the dtvpal from looking for TVGOS. This helps with bugs. Also did a factory reset and scanned for all channels and found 75 channels! WOW. Ok given many are non English. So even deleting the ones she did not want. She still has 55 channels.

We all forget the analog days. She only got 13 channels and half had bad snow. Now 55 channels and all great quality.
