Well I got Fox hd turned on tonight but the waiver submitted for CBS on Oct 3 was denied. The rep thinks that the waiver did not specify HD so they are going to resubmit it so here goes waiting another 3 weeks. They said the waiver also goes to KENS in San Antonio which is probably about 75 miles away. There is no way I can get a signal from them. I had previously called them in SA and I got a return phone call stating they do not grant any HD waivers end of conversation. If anybody has had better luck with CBS HD please help me. What department finally got it switched on for you?
Thanks for the help
I too live in South Austin and was denied by KENS for the waiver. The link on DirecTV where you put in your address shows that I get a grade B signal from KENS when I put in my full address or the zip code + 4. If I just put in my zip code (78749) KENS does not come up as a signal that I receive.
I got DirecTV to send me a form requesting that a signal test at my location be performed. If KENS is going to be so adamant about refusing waivers, then I want them to have to deal with the cost and inconvenience of conducting a test to show that I cannot receive KENS even with a Channel Master 4224 (not sure if that is the right model number or not) on top of my 2 story house.
If this doesn't work, I will "move" to my son's apartment who lives about 2 miles North of me. His address shows no KENS signal available using the DirecTV link.
I am quite pleased with KEYE's OTA signal and am just wanting to get the national feed as a backup. Also, I have an older DTC100 and you have to switch from SAT to OTA to get the locals and at times this seems to much for others to comprehend when using the remote control. I never even had locals through DirecTV until recently when they offered them free for 6 months. I will probably keep it once the free period is over if Fox HD is up and running on DirecTV. I can get FOX OTA about 95% of the time, but it would be worth it to me to pay a few dollars more per month to get it 100% of the time.
