Curious if any can help me in here. I live in columbus. I have directv and trying to get locals with a antenna. I have a indoor antenna and when its connected to my little tv in the bedroom i pick up local, but when i move it to my 52 inch in the living room i only get abc and cbs. I have even left the antenna in the bedroom and ran a cord to the tv and still nothing, any thing im doing wrong?
Mike do you know how much power 54 is putting out? Are they just running low power now for the Columbus area or are they a full power? So far in Auburn I can not get them, but I do get a digital signal from 3, 9, and 38
I recently posted in the Albany, GA - HDTV discussion thread a list of some Columbus, GA stations final channel elections after the "digital transition" is over. Here's the list:
WRBL has elected to broadcast digitally from their current digital channel of #15. WTVM has elected to broadcast digitally from their current analog channel of #9. WLTZ has elected to broadcast digitally from their current digital channel of #35. WXTX has elected to broadcast digitally from their current digital channel of #49.
WSWS has yet to state what they will broadcast from, although it obviously won't be from their current analog channel of #66.
I live on the west side of Auburn. Just have a Winegard GS2000 mounted about 40 feet off the ground on a chimney. It will get 12 digital and all the Montgomery analogs and Columbus analogs. I thinks when the other Montgomery stations go to full power or come on line I should be able to get them also. I understand the stations in Montgomery at this time are not up or just on low power and even if you live just outside Montgomery one can not get them at this time.
I have a Winegard Pr-9032 with a pre-amp pointed at Columbus and it get 3, 9, 38, and 66 in digital with out a problem. It is mounted on a 20 ft pole. For an experiment I turned the PR-9032 toward Montgomery, but it did not do any better than the GS2000.
Can the Winegard GS2000 pick up any of the Digital Stations coming out of Columbus? I think the wife would let me get away with that one as opposed to the Pr-9032. If not I guess I will be waiting for Montgomery to boost their power up. I just hope they do it for football season next year.
Last question. Do you know if Charter is thinking about adding any locals in High Def, or at least expanding their tier to include an INHD type channel? I can not seem to get a straight answer from any of their customer reps.
Anyone seen the new sub-channel on WTVM-DT 9.2..... It's called the TUBE.... It looks to be a music channel... Caught it for the first time last night while channel surfing... I'm over in Lizella and don't usually pick up any of the low power Columbus stations... I was wondering if WTVM has increased there power or (and probably) the signal was bouncing off the clouds just right.... On the other hand, if it was bouncing off the clouds, I should have been getting at least some of the other Columbus channels, I would think.... But, I wasn't... Anyway, if you haven't seen it, check it out....
I live in Phenix City and have a couple of questions.
First, I get all of the Columbus Channels fine OTA, has anyone in Columbus or Phenix City had any success getting the UPN feed OTA from Opelika? If so, what kind of antenna are you using.
Second, I recently re-scanned my OTA channels on my TIVO, now my guide for WXTX 54-1 and 54-2 are mixed up. 54-1 is my regular FOX programming but it gets the guide for 54-2, which is a music video channel called "The Tube"
Because of this, I have to do manual recordings if I want Fox programs recorded, because TIVO will record the wrong channel. Is anyone else having this issue?
Is there no one in the entire Columbus, GA viewing area interested in HDTV? I thought I could at least get someone over there answer a simple question of who in that area is actually broadcasting in HDTV. Come on wake up over there!
