The live shots are most definitely not HD, at least the one I saw last night.

It's a shame they had to be last and still be having audio issues. Kind of anticlimactic....confused.gif

No. They should be given time to work out the issues. It is brand new to them. All the channels had little things to work through when they went HD.

As for the 5.1, I don't think they understand how to use the encoder, or their calm device is not right.

Not all that difficult.

I was able to confirm by watching WRAL during Person of Interest last night that WNCT is fouled up in regard to their DD 5.1 - I saw the show was broadcast in true 5.1 as it came on and compared the two channels to be sure... It seems the audio on The CW is superior to 9-1 as well... 9-1 only has three channel audio for me.

I am glad I can watch WRAL thanks to the current weather patterns. smile.gif

I was asked to pass this along about WNCT DD 5.1 audio.

I talked to the engineers today about the DD 5.1 on 9.1. They have a piece of equipment that had to be returned to the manufacturer for repair. So they know there is a problem with it. If you want to pass that along. That's what the problem is.

I'm sure they have had their hands full with HD news upgrades.

Media General stations are still down on Dish. Almost a full month now since this started. I wonder how many that lost CBS around here went out and bought an antenna?

Looks good. Movies! is also available for HD. Maybe WCTI will do that too?

I would not count on it. They have Live Well on 12.2 and its bandwidth starved.

I don't know about you guys, but I am not a fan of letterboxing.

Hey folks....noob here. I've been using a Roku box for some time in order to cut the cord.

I just bought a Terk digital antenna and after messing around with it to day, I have yet to be able to pick up the WCTI-ABC 12 channels.....any suggestions?

Where are you? Indoor or outdoor antenna? UHF or VHF antenna? WFXI, WNCT, and WCTI in this market air on VHF channels. All the rest air on UHF.

South side of Greenville.... Off of Corey Rd. Indoor. Not sure if it's UHF or VHF. It's a Term OMNITV1A.

I get WITN regardless of where the antenna is..... Then I can only get a two combo of WFXI, WNCT, or WCTI with WCTI being the hardest to obtain. I figured I could get all stations easily.

Indoor antennas suffer from interference from all kinds of things. Usually more than 20-25 miles away from a tower, you can forget it, and start moving in the attic or better still outside. To me it is worth the installation and then you don't have to mess with it anymore, except maybe once every few years to check for water in the coax.

Got it. Thanks for the reply.... I'll research more. Any recommendations for an outdoor antenna?

I still have the two dish setup on the roof from DTV.... I could probably use the cable that they ran correct? Rather than run new coax.

Yes, use the cable and ground, but take off the diplexers/splitters as they do not work with OTA broadcasts. Use a regular cable splitter to divide your antenna signal to other TV's. You should be able to watch Raleigh broadcasters too if you aim west. If you aim south, you should see Wilmington at times.
post #8903 of 9109
You can't really see Wilmington from Greenville. If you do it's during a DX opening and you'll probably see Florence, Savannah, etc as well. Not a regular occurrence.

I watch Florence/ Myrtle Beach just about every morning, so I am surprised that people who aim towards the south to pick up WCTI/WYDO up near Greenville cannot see Wilmington early in the day, or evenings. I have a full 100% at over 60 miles just about constantly for 3 and 6. Also if you look at rabbit ears live bandscan, you can see that a user over Raleigh has these channels light up.
post #8905 of 9109
If I aim my antenna south, WITN/WNCT/WEPX just obliterate the entire dial. Between trees I can see the 7/9 tower from my front porch, and where the other poster is on Corey Road he probably can too. I imagine that may be what's killing Wilmington.

I have my antenna aimed at the Raleigh/Garner antenna farm and get both markets fairly well. WYDO breaks up sometimes.

My early AM/late PM catch is always WGHP/8! I don't know what it is about their signal but it blasts straight to my house often.
post #8906 of 9109
Wow, I hardly ever get WGHP and I live in Wilson! Even when I aim to the west I seldom get them. I do the exact opposite with my antenna, I keep it aimed at Trenton and pick up all the Raleigh stations just fine off the backside.

I did...and my network programs were not interrupted to tell me it was snowing outside. I'm all for weather warnings, but cutting in to say it's snowing is over the top.
