    Anyone one else having random dropout issues with WPMT (Fox43) today? It’s unwatchable so I have to watch the OTA feed (43-1) thru the AM21/HR54. I believe WITF and WPMT now share transmission signals, but only WPMT’s signal has these problems today. All other HD locals are ok..how do we report this issue to D*? A lot of times, WITF has similar issues but not today.

    Fox43 (WPMT) was breaking up horribly tonight again off and on.. the OTA feed was clean as were the other HD locals (WGAL, WHP, etc). And xponder 16 on 103(s) is 98. Anyone else seeing this? How do we report to D*???

    Fox43 WPMT is horrible today during this college bowl game. Seems to be the norm based on previous posts......

    Yes, I’ve been seeing it regularly. How do we report this to D*? The CSRs are clueless. They told me to reboot my IRDs although only WPMT is having the issue..no other stations including LILs.

    I’ve been regularly seeing WITF have dropouts, too. WITF and WPMT both share transmissions w/ the repack.

    WPMT is still having problems. Anyone figured out how to get D* to fix this? When I call D*, they just tell me to reboot my IRD. They apparently don’t understand it may be a OTA capture issue at WHP.

    Luckily the Super Bowl is in 4k so I don’t have to watch WPMT breaking up for 4 hours.
