post #871 of 892
did anyone else in tulsa with directv lose oeta-hd?
post #872 of 892
FYI - I finally got them to fix my issue. It was an issue with the line in the neighborhood.

Anyway, D* was ?advertising? all during the NFL games yesterday about Fox dispute and loss of channels.
post #873 of 892
Its the same dispute with Fox that Dish had with them last year over FX, NatGeo and all the Fox owned RSN's. It's Directv's turn now. They were off of Dish for about a month and it may happen to Directv too. Direct has already set a drop date of Nov 1. the contracts actually already expired and they using a contract extension now to keep them turned on. Basically Fox wants the same money that ESPN gets for all its RSN's

Hey guys. First time ditching cable and it feels great. I'm in BA and the reception is great.

I figured I'd post here with the locals before venturing into the DVR area and being told to "go away and search".


So....

Besides Tivo, is there any set-top box or similar that has the following:
  • On-screen guide
  • Netflix
  • DVR capability

I'd even live without the DVR capability if I could get a guide and netflix on the same box.

I've looked at Channel Master and a few others, and it appears that Tivo might be my only bet. I have a PS3 currently hooked up for Netflix and could get a Roku, but really want the onscreen guide.


Other than that, we actually don't really miss cable at all. Maybe when netflix gets boring over time, but so far we have no complaints.

Thanks for the help.

I've tried most of them currently available and returned all but the Tivo Premier

Thanks!

And the Tivo Premier has an on-screen guide, right? I couldn't find a pic on their site of anything but the search feature.

Can it record a show and watch something else OTA? Or is the dual tuner feature only for cable?

I am using mine for OTA only. It has dual tuner that allow you to watch one and
record one, or record two and watch one already recorded.
Both tuners have a 30 minute buffer that you can toggle between.
Not bad for $99. If you need more storage you add an external harddrive.
The guide for OTA only works great.
post #879 of 892
Thanks....I'm frustrated I missed out on the $9.99/month special they were having last November.

On a side note...I was reading that Cox might broadcast clear qam channels. Is this true? I have internet only through them now, but was curious if I would get the same channels through the cable as I do OTA.
post #880 of 892
I posted this elsewhere, and I'm sure crossposting is strongly discouraged, but figured you local guys wouldn't mind.



My TV Fool reception map:
http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...0b86c2a9b8e694




I purchased an RCA ANT1450BM, and it does a rather decent job overall, getting about 80-90 signal strength on most channels. The problem channel overall is the ABC affiliate operating on VHF I believe. What's funny is I think the NBC one is too but it has great reception.

In an effort to alleviate this, I bought an RCA ANT751R based on the reviews.

So far, it seems decent enough but really no better than the ANT1450BM, and at times worse. However, ABC does tend to come in better now.

The problem stems now from other channels pointed away from that primary tower SE of me.


SO, the real question:

Can I physically take the ANT1450BM apart and add it's omnidirectional antenna to the ANT751R somehow and have it create one "super antenna"? I know I can mess with splitters, jointennas, etc. My question is more of whether two antennas can be physically joined into one.


P.S. If someone has another antenna suggestion that will work instead of messing with all this, based on the pics and info, I'm all ears and would be happy to take back the others.

If you have cable internet with Cox, then yes put a splitter on the line and connect it to your tv and scan for cable. The locals and a few other channels are ITC qam. I had Cox internet for the last 3-4 years until last month when I moved. I had 2,6,8,11,23,41 in HD along with the Cox channel. The rest of the locals were SD along with some of the subchannels.

Would doing so be illegal? I don't want to break any laws just to get improved reception.
post #883 of 892
No it is not illegal. They are mandated to broadcast the locals in the clear for all their customers at the moment, due to the digital transition. The cable companies are trying to get that changed now that the transition has been completed and people are slowly getting rid of their analog tube tv's.
post #884 of 892
Thank you. Hooked it up, scanned. Sure enough. Got all of the channels in digital, and then got 703-711 in HD.

FYI

KOKI 23.2 switched it affiliation to MeTv on July 30, 2012. Classic tv shows instead of the music videos that were on The Cool Tv. Tulsa just needs and AntennaTv affiliate now.
post #887 of 892
Also FYI:

KOKI and sister KMYT are two of the four stations that current owner Newport announced back on July 19 that it would sell to Cox Media Group. The other two Newport stations being sold to Cox are in Jacksonville, FL.

Has anyone else with Dish Network DVRs been experiencing problems with OTA Channel 2 KJRH.?
I have a 722 and a 722K having big problems with the one hour buffer for OTA channel 2.
It's fine if I switch to KJRH from satellite.

post #889 of 892
Little late to this, but I reported it to Dishquality and to KJRH. What ever KJRH was doing to the OTA data stream, they fixed , as it was working normally again on my 722 this past Sunday.

Can anyone confirm that OETA has added Create and Kids to the OTA lineup?

Hello. Kind of a new guy here with a question. I live outside of Mannford and I'm having trouble getting channels 41.1 and 41.2. I get good signal (87%) on channel 23.1 but 41.1 won't show up at all. I have a Winegard HD 7080P High Definition VHF/UHF/FM Antenna mounted on the roof and a signal amp in the attic. I have gotten these channels before but it's been several months since I have completely lost them. I even tried contacting the station and they just say they haven't changed anything and their transmitter is working fine. Any ideas why I can't get the 41 channels would be appreciated.
