KBTV-CD will be moving to RF Channel 27 in early September. Same power as we are on Ch. 51. --Bill H.
Looks like your new antenna protecting KEXT-CA is all for naught. You should file an amendment for a new antenna to restore your coverage. Why?

Today the FCC granted a construction permit for a digital companion channel KEXT-LD on RF 20 that will be located on Mt. Allison in Fremont at the KSTS transmitter site. KEXT-CA on RF 27 is unlikely to return with just a year before the LPTV analog shutdown. With KEXT-CA off the air and their new digital station on RF 20 there is nothing to protect on RF 27 to the south of Sacramento.

LPTV game playing never ceases to amaze me.

I'll have to keep an eye out for KEXT on 20. That's where low power KAXT 42 (virual 1) is transmitting from and I get them okay here in the city.

Thanks for the info.

@TheDucksfan201... Hey, glad to see you back on here.

Thanks for the update on the addition of Escape and Grit up your way. They've been added down here, too... Escape on KDTV 14.4 and Grit on KFSF 66.4.

Seems like Fresno is the only "local" market where they both found a home on the same station, joining Univision and GetTv on channel 21 (rf 20).

Can't Scan in Channel 13.1 or 58.1

I just got a replacement DirecTV HR24-500 Receiver and also have it connected to a Directv OTA Receiver. When I do a scan I do not see 13.1 or 58.1. I am able to scan 13.2, which pulls in the same channels as the DirecTV 13 channel. I have another HR24 in the house that was scanned several months ago and it shows 13.1 and 58.1. I have not attempted a new scan on the older HR24 as I didn't want to have an issue with that device.

Is there an issue with these two channels?

I have a Channel Master 4228 Antenna.

HR24/AM21 receivers don't scan, they use data downloaded from DirecTV's database for "enabling" local stations in the guide. If the data isn't present in the guide when downloaded, it won't show up.

Try resetting the system and redoing the setup, perhaps with an alternate zip code closer to Sac.

I did a reset as suggested above and it did find 58.1 this time. However, it did not find 13.1, but did find 13.2 with a 100% signal strength. The 13.2 programming is the same as what is on 13, so I guess I'm good to go.

Does anyone know anything about Ch 10-4 PSIP Test0004 (rf 23)?

Apparently it belongs to Rf 23 KEZT and is airing Unimas.

It's interesting that your tuner is showing 13.2 and not 13.1. KOVR does not have a .2 sub-channel. You're good to go, but I thought you might like to know that your tuner is acting a bit weird. :) Your tuner should have also found 58.2 in addition to 58.1.

You can check my station list, linked below, for a look at all the stations in your area.

There have been no issues with KVIE here of any sort. I don't know why you've started having problems.

Chuck
Thanks Chuck. I think I am just too far from the transmitter. Since PBS is important to me I think I'm going to do what I've been contemplating for so long now... I'm pointing er north to get KIXE. :)

KSCO 33 (rf 3) is looking at their multiplexer, and Telemundo SD on 33.4 should be returning to the air. No word on anything to replace Zuus Country on 33.3. Looks like it will stay silent/black, or be pulled off the air.
