All Philly locals are out and have been for hours now.  Slide is up saying that D* is aware of the issue.

I sent a message to WCAU's contact us link on their website directed to Programming about the audio issues.  Granted its a holiday week so I'm not sure when they will get to it.

 

Yes all the HD locals are out.  Only thing working here is 23, 35-1, 35-2, 51 and I guess other SD's that I have hidden from my favorites.

Anyone know of any plans to add the WFMZ Accuweather channel? 69.2? I miss this from cable and I don't have an OTA antenna.

cypherx - WCAU (10)'s audio problems were with the station, not DirecTV.  Verizon FiOS had exactly the same issues.

Yes I noticed Service Electric had the problem too (I check on my ClearQAM).  Also noted on WCAU's facebook page there were comments from Comcast users as well.

 

I watched the Eagles game on Channel 40 WMGM Atlantic City.  Aside from an occasional pop/click, the audio was nowhere nearly as bad as channel 10's.  Plus the New Jersey commercials made me feel like I was down at the shore again.   :up:

Get an antenna. It is unlikely that most LP and non-major network subchannels will ever be on Directv.


DIRECTV: Genie (HR34) w/AM21 and 1 client.
AT&T: U-Verse Internet, Motorola modem and Samsung Galaxy S3 cell.
LG 42" (1080p, 120 Hz, 3D, Smart TV), Samsung 32" (1080p, 60 Hz)
Denon AVR591, Panasonic Blu Ray, Magnavox DVD player, Philips VCR, Terk HDTVo.

WMGM-40 will likely be kaput on January 1.   Even if it continues to exist, Comcast revoked their NBC affiliate status, effecti9.2 ve Jan 1.

 

I get 69.2 OTA just fine.  I'm in zip code 19425.   But keep in mind that you can't get it on a D* receiver with an OTA capability because it's not in their programming database.  Apparently, D* has no ability to add additional subchannels to their OTA guide database :(

69.2 Accuweather and 69.3 Heroes & Icons are both in the database since they have Tribune IDs below 65535 (0xfff), however 69.4 Retro is not.

Oh that stinks about ch 40. It's a good backup. Maybe DirecTV can use the bandwidth to make 23 NJN in HD?

I don't have an OTA antenna, nor do I have the off air tuner add on for my DTV. if I did, would it go to all receivers, or just the one it is connected to?
