After channel changes...I checked prior to a rescan...
I lost CBS 2.1 and 4.1, NBC...5.1 Fox had gone missing prior.
Post scan, again got CBS and NBC on the new channels...Fox locks again. Bonus is now WLIW is lockable, so that is four useful channels gained. LIW does a better PBS job than WNET, who now has a problem with a better competitor...I'd have fought that reassignment...there aren't two ABC or CBS outlets in one market.... I never got LIW before, as the transmitter was hidden by nearby hills.
I'm 42 miles north of NYC, up 250 feet, and even though I'm near the ends of the Contour, my height generally puts me in "green" receive locations even if surrounded by yellow or red. Antenna is a CM 4228-no amps or rotor, feeds four sets total.
Signal levels overall have been higher in the past....I'm seeing on a Tivo 65-75 where I prior saw 85-100 on UHF, but it locks, so it "works".
All the "rescan now" stuff was wrong...as if you rescanned when they told you to, nothing would happen. They needed to say "rescan LATER", but essentially the communication was useless, fully as their job IS communication, and the adverts I saw were more confusing than helpful, and I knew what the subject was...
