Has anyone noticed the Audio Descriptions WKRN has on some of it's network shows? I get them when I record OTA with my HDHomeRun Dual but not when I record them on my Tivo HD with Comcast.

I've seen people complaining about this elsewhere. Some suggested they have their SAP incorrectly set.

Just turned tv on channel 4 has a sub channel again

It's a tnn logo but it has just stopped motion and is showing video alarm detected service id (4490)

Anyone else seeing it?

Just looked there is scheduling starting the 1st of November hoped there would have been some other programming on there instead of more music but it's better than nothing I guess

I watched a few minutes of the televised radio program "Rick and Bubba' this morning. Is that supposed to be intended as general entertainment or a religious program?

Is anyone having trouble with Fox 17? I haven't been able to pick it up for weeks. I missed the entire NLCS and World Series. (if you blinked you missed the World Series this year... haha). More importantly Fox is airing bigger college football games this year and of course NFL so I'm desperate to get it back. Seems like I remember having the same problem this time last year.

Nothing about my setup or antenna position has changed. I live in southern Davidson county off Nolensville road. I'm about 20 miles from the tower. I've got a large directional antenna in the attic with a 30 dB amp at the antenna.

Any advice and/or info will be greatly appreciated.

Last time I did a scan, my TV skipped Fox 17 and MyTV 30. I was able to add them in manually. I live west of the towers.

First thing I would try is a good indoor antenna and eliminate the amp and long cable run. The quality of the tuner makes a difference too.

They were on 104.5 a few years back and what I recall it was a mix of sports, hunting, religion, politics and whatever. A few laughs here an there but it was too centered on what was going on in Birmingmam at the time. I felt it was an awkward fit for Nashville morning drive and don't see how it will pull much of an audience on TNN. I guess the alternative would be 4 hours of infomercials so maybe it is not a bad thing.

Obviously I didn't stick around long enough because all I heard was everyone telling how religious they are.

I noticed all the Sinclair channels(Fox 17 WZTV,WUXP MYTV30 and WNAB CW58) are a lot lower signal strength than I usually get, I almost always get Fox 17 and myTV30 at full strength and CW58 comes in at about half strength(50%). Now, MYTV30 is at half, Fox 17 is at quarter strength and WNAB is nearing about no signal and breaking up constantly. I am in the Hendersonville area and am using the flat RCA antenna(indoor) and I have not moved it in a long time. Something has to be going on with the tower

Me-tv has been added to the Knoxville market. I don't know why Nashville is not doing the same. Can it be nobody is requesting it be added to any of the local sub channels? eek.gif
post #3286 of 3512
I emailed WTVF to get Me-TV when they added RF25 and eliminated RF50. The General Manager sent back an email pushing mobile reception. I think they will not change anything until the new owners get settled in. Wonder what will happen?

Email the twit back and ask him to actually read and answer your email. Besides mobile likely being the next big loser in broadcasting, they aren't going to broadcast the sub-channels anyway in the M/H stream.
post #3288 of 3512
You don't think that was an answer? I do. The answer being "we're not adding a 5-4 because we plan to do Mobile DTV with that space."

If anything, we've seen a few of the This TV affiliates converted to Me-TV affiliates, most recently announced being WPTZ in Burlington VT and KVLY in Fargo ND. I wouldn't be surprised to see WTVF do the same at some point after Journal closes on the sale.

Whats the best way for me to get channels 8, 27, 10 without a rotator? Or is it even possible. As you can see they are basically the opposite direction of all the other channels from me.

Is there a specific antenna i should use?

Please post the link to your complete TVFool radar plot instead of a partial snapshot. We also need to see information regarding distances, signal powers, and if there are calculated terrain issues.

Try inputting an antenna height of 10ft instead of 25 and see if the path still shows LOS for those three stations. At 25ft, the plot at your location is better than mine and I've had good results with indoor antennas despite the stations being in different directions.

Are you using an outdoor antenna now and it does not work unless aimed just so?

If cost isn't an object, I'd order the ClearStream 2 Complete directly from Antennas Direct. When it arrives, disassemble the reflector assembly (it's held on with just screws and nuts) and discard (set aside) the reflector screen. Reassemble and install in a location that offers a good view in both of the directions of your primary signal. With the reflector screen removed, the C2V is a nice,compact, bidirectional antenna with 60-70 degree lobes both front and rear.

The "original" version of the C2V used screws and nuts to attach the reflector screen. The newest version that is available at Best Buy and certain Lowes stores uses rivets that would have to be drilled out making the modification less easy.

There are likely other antennas that would work just fine, it's just that this one comes to mind as a near-perfect fit for your application.

I have a Clearstream 2 wi the VHF antenna now but didn't know you could remove the reflector screen. I'll try that. What degree Angle would you recommend.
post #3295 of 3512
Just had my 7000pal alert me of a new station........ 28-4 ishop

Two ION life channels come on! frown.gif
post #3296 of 3512
Yep! I got it, too!
post #3297 of 3512
Apparently WNPX's 28-4 (listed as "ISHOP" or "I-SHOP") is a west coast feed of ION Life (28-3).

The movie "Solitary Man" is on 28-3 right as I'm typing this, while 28-4 has the Canadian show "Killer Comebacks". Three hours later, 28-4 should have "Solitary Man" on.

Sorry, didn't see your post sooner.

If you bought the CleatStream 2 Complete package that I recommended, the reflector screen is held on by screws. If you bought the newer edition ClearStream 2V (no cable in the box), you have to drill out the rivets to remove the screen.
post #3299 of 3512
Thanks for all the help. From my tvfool link can you recommend which direction i should point it?

I have the 2v setup, vhf+uhf
post #3300 of 3512
30-35° should do it. That antenna has a very generous reception pattern.
