    Jeopardy on COZI instead of main channel Tuesday

    KNSD notified Jeopardy viewers on Monday night with a crawl stating that Jeopardy would be on COZI Tuesday instead of the main channel. I appreciated the advance notice and the chance to watch Jeopardy Tuesday night on COZI, 39.1 OTA, instead of NBC News coverage of incomplete election results...

    No Impact in San Diego?

    The EPG on my TiVo has been restored for KNSD & COZI, more than 48 hours after the frequency change. Today (Saturday 3/16) at 7 pm I manually downloaded data on my Tivo then reselected channels 39.1 & 39.2 (frequency 17). These are things I have done repeatedly in the last two days. This time it...

    No Impact in San Diego?

    Since the KNSD channel switch on March 14, 2019, I am not getting EPG (Electronic Program Guide) information for channel 39 on my TiVo, so unless I set up a manual recording by time and channel, I cannot set up any recordings. I am in North Park with a UHF 2nd-story rooftop antenna connected to...

    KFMB signal getting weaker?

    As if someone flipped a switch last night (Sunday 5/6), channels 8.1 and 8.2 came in perfectly with a signal strength of 40 (versus 35 lately). This morning it was back to a black screen and 35 strength. My 2nd story rooftop antenna is pointing at Mt. Soledad. UHF stations 1 (broadcasting on...

    KFMB signal getting weaker?

    Bill, TVfool shows channel 8 in the green for a 26 foot antenna at my address. That was an estimate. I have a Clearstream 5 antenna on I think a 6 foot mast on the side of my 2nd story roof pointed at Mt. Soledad. I get great reception on channels 15, 39, 69, and some Mexican and independent...

    KFMB signal getting weaker?

    I just did a signal strength test with my TiVo: channel 8 has a peak of about 35, channel 10 (which has never come in with my antenna) peak 32, channels 15, 39. & 69 all have peaks of about 70.

    KFMB signal getting weaker?

    I'm the user whose picture on KFMB improved with a different amp. Now it's back to it was before. I haven't had a clear picture since I last posted. I'm going to try to get a new amp and see if that helps. I hesitate to take the next step to hire someone to go on my roof and install a pre-amp...

    No signal?

    I solved the problem (mostly) with a different signal amplifier. I replaced my 4 year old Winegard HDA-100 with an even older Scientific Atlanta amp I got from Cox when I had cable TV. With the SA amp, the signal on 8.1 & 8.2 came in with a little pixellation last evening at 7, a lot of...

    No signal?

    I just got back from vacation and CBS/CW (channels 8.1 & 8.2) have disappeared again. Right now the picture is totally black on both channels but clear on channels 15, 39, and 69. Looking at my recordings while I was away The Bog Bang Theory (3/29 8 pm) was clear for the first 12 minutes, then...

    No signal?

    Is it just me or is something weird going on with KFMB? It's my weakest channel (besides 10, which I haven't gotten for years). Channels 15, 39, 51, and 69 come in with no problems, but 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 often get interference in bad weather or for some other reason. On Tuesday 6/27 I recorded...

    CW switching to KFMB

    I receive my TV with a rooftop antenna in North Park. It's great that CW (formerly 6.1, which I don't get) will be on channel 8.2, (which I do get), but not so great that MeTV (formerly 8.2) is moving to 10.2 (which I don't get). I'd rather KFMB dropped Grit, 8.3, mostly a bunch of old westerns...

    No signal?

    I haven't been able to get channel 10 for years. Strangely, channel 8 usually comes in OK except in bad weather.

    Needless promotion

    I always get annoyed with TV stations superimposing graphics over a show. Whether it's TV Land with a countdown timer to the next show (over the end of the last one). or NBC promoting something or other during an intense fight scene in Grimm, they drive me crazy. Well when I was watching...

    No signal?

    Channel 8.1 CBS KFMB is always my weakest signal in North Park with a rooftop antenna. I get channels 15, 39, and 69 with no problems, plus a bunch of independent and Mexican stations that I don't watch. Whenever the weather is bad channel 8 will have dropouts or disappear entirely. The last...

    Is reception getting worse or is it just me?

    Since Monday night (9/19/2011) I have lost ABC (10) and CBS (8) as well. The only English-language networks I get now are PBS (15), Fox (69), and NBC (39). If it weren't for the Internet I would be missing all my shows. I think something must be interfering because my antenna size...
