Hi all!

I know this is slightly off-topic, but I also know how much you all love and miss The Tube on Ku!. While watching my local Fox affiliate this afternoon (Standard DIgital OTA), a commercial caught my attention. On one of the digital sub-channels (31.2, in my case), the Tube Music Network is going to be broadcast OTA! How cool is that! I don't have a ginormous dish, so this will be an excellent way to get back what seemed, for me, to be gone forever.

Call your local Fox affiliate to see if you can get The Tube in your neck of the woods. (If you're already getting this OTA, please don't burst my bubble by flaming me. I'm excited, OK?)

Cheers,
Hantu

Did you hear that? It was the sound of the wind leaving my sails. I guess I'm just the last one on the planet to know everything. They need to make this "Internet thing" more informative. There just isn't enough free information out there.:)

If you have a Cband dish, you can still receive The Tube Music Network on AMC 3 4036 H 3679 (per LyngSat).

I think if I bought a BUD to watch The Tube, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be long before the both dish and I were looking for a new place to roost. I'm lucky I was able to put the 90cm in the back yard!

I like the way that I am getting The Tube now. My TV has an optical audio out to my receiver and the quality is "good enough for gov't work."

As I said earlier, I know this was a bit off-topic, but then again, it is digital TV out of the sky that originates from a satellite somewhere, right?

Cheers,
Hantu

TSReader shows there is also mpeg2 audio on pid 257. It's in the stream, but when I select it, I don't hear anything. Weird.

That could be a network to station feed, to notify and let those stations that do, insert there local commercials.
