do you have an LG TV? I've heard some things that it's an issue... a rescan might help.



Also... Mr. Video... more channels means fewer bits, but encoders have come a long way! 5 channels now probably look about as good or better than the 2nd or 3rd channels did back in the early days of DTV...

While that is indeed probably true, that is still a lot of bits being taken away from the main 1080i stream. The bits allowed for OTA DTV is still barely enough to handle a busy 1080i MPEG-2 stream. Adding a 720p and three 480i streams is still way too many, IMHO.

Nope, TV I was sampling 15-5 with was a Vizio. Audio seems to be in sync now, though.

does anyone know if WIFS is changing 57-5 for something else since QVC is also on 3-4?

I haven't seen WZCK-LD on the air in a while. Have tried rescanning twice in last week but no luck. I'm only a couple miles from their transmitter and haven't had reception problems in the past. Anyone picking up a signal from them?

Yeah, they went off again several days ago. I decided not to keep posting again and again if they can't stay on the air stably. Hopefully, they'll come back soon. When they do I'll post that info if they stay on for at least 2 weeks.

WLUK in Green Bay moved to VHF 12 at 10am today.... I wonder if anyone now receives WISC any better now? and hopefully it paves the way for them to be able to increase power.

Still no signal for me on Ch 3. Trying a rescan now. Will wait until I see more posts on this to climb up on the roof and try rotating the antenna.
Fingers crossed that they will increase the power.
