    Subchannel Discussion Thread

    I have a "Creation TV" here in the LA market on KHTV-CD 6-5. It's all in Chinese with open captions in Chinese as well. Is that what people are talking about here? In widescreen SD "stretch-a-vision" too. Yuck ... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    Subchannel Discussion Thread

    Hey Trip; Just a minor subchannel change in the LA market ... It appears the SonLife religious network formally on vir. 18-7 (phy. 18.5) by Rabbitears is now on vir. 20-1 with the same phy. 18.5. Placing it in the same virtual channel range as KNLA-CD chs. 20-2 to 20-4. But actually coming...

    Decades Replaced by StartTV

    Oh Ok, specifically on the SBS-1 satellite there I see ... What happened was as long time DIRECTV sub., when the poster said "101W", it made me immediately think he was also a DIRECTV sub. and referring to their main satellite slot on the Ku DBS band there. [emoji9] I actually receive all...

    For clarification, what do you mean by DECADES is on satellite at 101W? Are you referring to "FTA" satellite or something? Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    Decades Replaced by StartTV

    Yeah .. Same situation here in the LA market, where Weigel owned KAZA-DT 54-1 has MeTV in 720p HD. Yet I and others could see no PQ difference between 54-1 and an SD duplicate of MeTV broadcast here on KDOC-DT 56-3. But then one day I was speaking with the head of studio ops. for local...

    Decades Replaced by StartTV

    Unless you're a woman perhaps ... Since that's what the network is geared towards. Various drama series featuring women in leading roles. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    Gained 9 OTA channels

    For all the others you list, I agree ... But for Retro TV, I don't know ... What's up with that network anyhow? Currently get Retro on KBEH-DT3 63-3 here in LA and the PQ for the classic TV shows they broadcast is absolutely crap. And really look like old home VCR recordings. In addition...

    Decades Replaced by StartTV

    Oh yeah ... I suppose Weigel could have made deals to carry DECADES on better full power stations like CBS's KCAL or with Fox's KTTV. But naturally wanted to place their now fully owned network on their own station outlet I suppose. Which actually wouldn't have been a problem if Wiegel had...

    Decades Replaced by StartTV

    It's happened here in the LA market too ... Where DECADES has now moved from 2-2 on CBS O&O KCBS to Wiegel owned KAZA 54-2. Which is a station that actually channel shares on a crappy low power Spanish station KHTV-CD 27. So from a full power station with great coverage to a low power one...

    Does anyone know the FULL frequencies of the new ones for KXLT on Sep. 27th?

    Yeah, but on the TiVo channel while a channel rescan may find a channel after it moves. Unless the guide data from Rovi is correct, the rescan usually results in a double listing for the channel in the guide. With the new one having no guide program info. ("Title not available"), but is able to...

    Does anyone know the FULL frequencies of the new ones for KXLT on Sep. 27th?

    It appears what the OP is asking for are the new "program (stream) numbers" KXLT will assign to the main and secondary subchannels when the station moves to RF channel 26 on Sep. 27th. Right now the program numbers are 3 and 4 respectively on RF channel 46, which is what the number following...

    KVCR Going to Low VHF

    Yeah ... I think the ASI fiber feeds are at least used by the big four O&Os in this market. KCBS-2, KNBC-4, KABC-7, and KTTV-11. But you can tell most others are likely OTA since when a station repack movement here causes a change in their frequency DIRECTV's satellite rebroadcast of them...

    KVCR Going to Low VHF

    Besides, I get the main KVCR 24-1 (though only in SD) and its FNX subchannel on 24-2, on DIRECTV anyway .... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    KVCR Going to Low VHF

    In the LA market myself, ... but nah ... I don't think anyone's really selling exclusively VHF-lo antennas nowadays. Think your only option is to simply purchase an entire VHF-lo/hi and UHF multiband model. With all the repack movements I was thinking of replacing my current VHF-hi/UHF...

    The Repackage

    Glad to hear it .... As I said, admittedly I've been a big critic of the AM21 in the past to the point of finally giving up on it all together out of exasperation for a TiVo OTA. But in this area of ability to adjust to the changing physical channels of the repack, its design manages that very...

    The Repackage

    My new KLCS/KCET CSA has two HD channels (720p), and 4 SD ones. I thought it would be a bit-starved mess, but looks fine ... I think TV stations' multiplexers are better at doing multicasting now .... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    The Repackage

    Yes ... We've recently had two stations, KLCS-58 (RF 41)(PBS) and KAZA-54 (RF 47)(MeTV), cease their own broadcasts and enter into CSAs with two other stations. KCET-28 (RF 28) and KHTV-CD 27 (RF 27) respectively. And the AM21s here predictively lost the stations. But after rerunning the...

    The Repackage

    Oh I'm not referring to that popular workaround on the AM21. What I'm saying is that the AM21 can usually find a new physical channel of a station already in the database if it changes by rerunning the setup. While I don't know the total numbers available, what DIRECTV is doing is called the...
