Thanks TonyD79.

Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

Quoting Bonscott87 from the AVS board (in case anyone reads this thread..

"Fox is down OTA. Also down via DirecTV. I think their tower must have went down in the storms. "

I can also verify 17 is down in OTA and mp4. :(

Based on what I've been reading, I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up in the Giants local market, and were just blacked out ;)

Good luck! Our Fox affiliate's digital broadcast was down for a week due to storm damage. :(

Yep, it was down (still is I think).

No word on what happened but it went out shortly after some big storms moved thru the area. WXMI seems to have bad luck in getting struck by lightning or storm damage it seems. :(

And yes, AVS HD locals forum is *the* place to go for info like this, especially to see if it's a station problem (OTA down too) or just with D*.
