FOX 10/11 official logo...

Posted Image

OK, I'm done obsessing over Fox 10/11 now....

Once Directv provides us with Fox 10/11, our local HD lineup will be complete, and I can take down that second dish.

I'm going to keep my OTA antenna up, however. I like the PQ better. And I've put in a lot of time perfecting that damn thing anyway. And I suppose it will be a nice backup if the satellite signal ever gets interrupted by weather. But it will be nice to easily watch locals now thru the D* box, instead of having to change the tv input back and forth.

I read about KOLN's sister station in Oklahoma City that is already simulcasting CBS HD and Fox HD on different subchannels, and people were posting that the picture quality was fine. This was for OTA reception, of course, but lets hope it works from Directv. I also saw the February 1st launch date - was this the date that Directv launches FOX HD on 25, or just the date KOLN will launch FOX on 10.2 over-the-air?


My guess is we'll see the Fox content on D* 25 once it goes live, but it'll probably be a bit before we get it HD or the guide matches up.

Roger that. My guess is we'll also have three months of audio-vid sync problems on 25 too. If D* 10 KOLN had these chronic problems, and if Fox HD is broadcast from the same station, it'll likely be similar. Let's hope not.

I'll keep my eye on OTA 10.2 to watch for the Fox HD broadcast....

I'm guessing nobody around here watches channel 25 (MyTV). With this Fox10/11 talk, I glanced at the channel the other day. Not only does the guide info list the same stuff that's on channel 10, the channel video/audio was horrible! I don't usually have too many issues with our locals, but the video/audio break up on this channel was constant.

Can't say I watch the channel myself, and if I did, I'd just go OTA, but hopefully this channel will work better if/when they load up Fox.

When I saw the crappy video/audio on Directv 25, I checked the OTA 10.2 and it was fine.

Makes you wonder if KOLN/Directv are fiddling with it in preparation for adding Fox 10/11.

Recent LJS article refuting the Fox 10/11 rumor.

http://journalstar.c...98215560118.txt

So, KOLN buys a domain, puts up a website, puts up Fox 10/11 graphics and programming, releases an announcement...but it was all just a project? Very interesting....

It's being reported that KTVG 17 Fox is now in HD on Directv. Got home too late after the basketball game, so only Seinfeld is on now in standard def. Can anyone confirm?

So much for the Fox 10/11 rumors....kind of disappointing actually, but at least the five networks are now in HD from Directv.

It might very well be. It seems to be a better picture and in the guide it says FOX television services from KTVGDT-TV. I don't think it had the DT before.

Watching 2 1/2 Men and I can hear another audio track in the background. Sounds like another channel's audio is "bleeding" over verly quietly.

Here is a cached link from Google. The JS says it was an experiment, I don't think so. I think some jumped the gun.

Bingo.

Just read that Directv showing Fox HD on KTVG doesn't mean Fox isn't moving to KOLN. Directv could easily pick up Fox HD on KOLN if it moved there from KTVG.

The rumor stays alive...

Or, if KSNB, the Fox repeater in Superior, goes under, then you could have the same situation with Fox as already exists with ABC: an east and west affiliate for the same network in the same market... ? KTVG would cover the west half, KOLN 10.2 the east half. The problem is that they call it Fox 10/11, and channel 11 would horn in on KTVG.

Seems odd that KTVG would even bother to be carried on DirecTV for such a short time before going off the air... unless they're hoping to stay on DirecTV even after a change to CW or MyN or RTN or whatever network.

My guess is that both KTVG and KSNB will go under together. Then if KOLN/KGIN picked up FOX, the whole market area would be covered.

But you might be right - maybe Directv plans to continue to carry KTVG even if they lose Fox. But there's already a CW station, a MyTV station, and a RTN station, so what is KTVG going to carry if they lose Fox? What's left to carry?

I've read where its not unprecedented for Directv to carry a station that is going off the air, because all they have to do is "flip a switch" to carry the network from another local station. So if that's true, Directv is just trying to provide Fox HD no matter where it comes from. And if the station closes, they just switch it to the new station.

Spent time tonight watching everything - all HD channels (5, 8, 10, 17 and 29) rock solid on my HR20, H20, and H23 receivers. Guide info correct.

For the last several days, KTVG has been pretty much unwatchable because of stutering, pixelation, and audio drops on both my HR20-700's. Anybody else experiencing problems with this or is it just me?

Hadn't watched KTVG for a while, but checked the first few minutes of Fringe that recorded Tuesday and it seemed fine & a quick check of live broadcast just now seems to be coming in good. Maybe the issued was correct between our posts. Hope this helps.

My receiver is a HR20-100

KOLN is almost unwatchable during the final four. I thought it might be the weather, but the problem seems to be exclusive to KOLN, well at least to the degree it is. The dreaded brrriiiip and audio drop is occuring about every 10-15 minutes today.

KXVO (CW) out of OMAHA(!) is now carried, albeit only in HD version, in the Lincoln market. I think DirecTV was allowed to do this since Pappas owns the CW affils in both Lincoln and Omaha markets, and there is no HD version in the Lincoln market. This is the first instance of a "significantly viewed" out-of-market station appearing in DirecTV LiLs in this part of the country.

KXFL-TV Channel 17 - Channel is really KFXL, but directv lists it as KXFL

Audio is off about 2 seconds. Went back to look at some DVR'd shows and Fringe from 1/13 is off, but Finder from Thursday night audio seems fine.

Posted on their facebook page also, but looks like others have as well since last night with no resolution.

I really dislike this station. There are always issues. Audio and picture are always less than other channels and a lot of times they'll come back from commercial in SD until the next commercial break.
