I had the same issue. When I checked for reception at about 8:45 PM there was no signal at all for KWGN-DT. When I checked signal levels it didn't show signal at all.

In the pool I will take 8/14/08 - my bday.

KWGN-DT was off for all of Gilmore Girls and when I checked it was off for Veronica Mars.
Haven't checked since.

They have been in shock since the law passed. They did have a couple of quick quotes in the Golden Transcript that said;

"The act of Congress was like dropping a nuclear bomb on our communities"
"Both of our communities have been hurt by this, but it could have been done to any other community ... that's what's frightening."
"Now it's a matter of what we can do to best deal with this"

And the sCARE website was just updated to say they are "responding and exploring options." to both LCG and Public Interest Corporation/Bear Creek Development (Mt Morrision) continued tower development.

I think that first thread started around August, 2000...

Since I didn't learn anything from some occasional earlier optimism, I'll guess March 30, 2008 for the first transmission from the new tower, to hopefully give residents some type of reasonable transition time before the analog shut-down.

Crazy eights seems fitting.

That would explain my "Zero Second" PVR recording of Veronica Mars.

Thanks for the heads up Pkeegan, at least I know it wasn't on my end.

So the new tower (operational mid-2008?) will broadcast 4, 7, 9, and 20, right? So what about the other stations? PBS 6? FOX 31? Anyone have any info on those? Thanks.
post #38 of 8459
31 already has their own tower, 6 is in negotiations for a new site or they could decide to rejoin LCG (they were a part of it originally)

Right back at both of you. Good to know my S3 TiVo wasn't lying to me about there not being a signal.

Both GG and VM did show properly on Comcast. They must get a different signal path. I think I've heard that before for some stations, but not sure it applies to all.

I'm receiving KWGN-DT again. Last night was a perfect opportunity for Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars. Too bad. I ended up watching them on Comcast analog. Seems like Gilmore Girls & Veronica Mars are the only CW shows being commented on.

What do we win????

A Laurel and Hearty congratulations? (stolen shamelessly from Blazing Saddles)

I was thinking more of... A poke in the eye with a blunt stick?

Hate to nitpick, but the line was "a laurel, and hardy handshake."

Were you thinking of a blanket picnic, with wine (not whine) and cheese under the tower?
post #50 of 8459
I guess I should pick a date... I'm pretty optimistic, so I'm going with 6/14/08.

That will work.

Oh, a date for the tower: 2/17/09. Just in time. :-)
post #53 of 8459
OK, I'll take 11/1/08. No cute reason for it, tho.

I cannot envision the stations that have elected to retain their present channel assignments switching to 8VSB before the current 2009 deadline:

a) They will want to hold on to their current OTA viewers for as long as possible and will wait until the Government STBs are available to their less effluent viewers.

b) They will be denied permission to discontinue NTSC before the transition date; the FCC will allow the maximum time for the public to be educated and prepare.

Affluent, I think you meant. I think you are probably right overall, although I expect there will be a lot of publicity about the transition by the middle of next year. And it is possible that the subsidized STBs will be available as well.

And there are a few stations which the FCC has already allowed to make the transition to digital only. I haven't heard of any case where a station requested a transition and the FCC denied it.

post #58 of 8459
Ah heck, I'll take 12/31/08

Deb eh, well, you could celebrate by taping her to a chair and then using a microwave in the same room.

Hello everyones, from your next door from New Mexico and I predict that your local Denver station will go on the air on 8-25-08!

Enjoy the victory over evil Scare!!

I don't agree. You're saying, in effect, that these stations (7 & 9) will be allowed to flash cut to digital in 2-09. Don't think the FCC is going to allow that.
