That's right. Me-TV is now on satellite in the NYC DMA on WSAH channel 43. Goodbye to RTV. I just hope it will be full time. My DTV guide is still showing the old programing. Hopefully that gets fixed soon. This is a real treat.
On January 4, 2012, WSAH did switch from Retro Television Network to Me-TV on their primary channel carrying Me-TV's programming from 2 to 6 AM and also from 9 AM to 10 PM on weekdays and 2 to 10 PM on weekends. Infomercials are running in the hours that Me-TV programming is not shown
I have also been in contact with WSAH and they are confirming there will still be informercials. Ice, it seems there will only be informercials until 9:00AM on Saturday. Otherwise, everything else you have is correct. I have also been in contact with Tribune and the guide will be fixed any time now.
You can hook a AM21 up to the HR24 (they sell for like $50 on the Directv site) but the issue with the AM21 is it doesnt scan in channels (like a converter box does). It goes off a database and right now there are 2 channels missing from the database in MSP (not including the 18 low powered religious stations on 16,25,33,50 & 62)
23-3 The Country Network (24/7 country videos)
so until its loaded into the database the AM21 wouldn't help
