Did anyone have problems with WCBI (4 - ) last night or WKDH (45-1) this morning?
******* some background to introduce myself ***********
I read through all the posts, so I am caught up and wanted to describe what I'm doing. I'm off S. Montgomery about 5 miles south of Starkville, MS.
I initially had a powered Philips "rabbit ear" antenna feeding directly into my Samsung HDTV's internal ATSC tuner. I got WCBI fine, and WKDH (45-1), WLOV(27-1), and PBS (2-1) only one cloudy night.
I have since installed a passive CM 3020 in my attic with RG6 running to a splitter that feeds the Samsung HDTV, and the D* HR20-700.
In this setup, I can receive 2-1, 2-1, 4-1, 4-1, 4-3, 27-1, 45-1 on the TV. The D* HR20 integrates all of these channels into the guide all except 45-1 which isn't in the D* database yet since it just went digital. (I'm not sure if this D* fix to add 45-1 will require a HR20 software fix, or a data change on their servers.) I have been in the D* and dbstalk forums looking for an answer, and D*'s email tech support was no help.
At any rate, since I installed the rather large yagi-type CM3020 in my attic, I've had great reception with 70-100% on D* tuners - until last night. The HR20 had trouble locking on to WCBI (4-) and it was reporting 30% on both tuners. The Samsung TV was able to lock, and it reported ~4/10 bars. I manually turned the CM3020 until I found the max signal, which the HR20 reported in the 50's%. The HR20 was then able to lock, and the Samsung stayed locked.
This morning, the Samsung was having trouble with WKDH (45-1) - and it was fluctuating between 3, 2, 1, or no bars. The picture was going from broken to no signal. I did not have time to see if adjusting the CM3020 would help the situation.
