Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Some smart meters have RF transmitters, but a quick google suggests that they shouldn't be overlapping with any UHF channels. That's what I thought, as I got the same results when I Googled it. I was trying to think of anything that changed in the area that would cause myself and my neighboor to se...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Well, I found out some new information. My neighbor down the street is having a similar issue. His signal looks good for minutes, then breaks up 1-5 seconds then good for minutes. He doesn't have access to advanced stuff like TSReader or even a TV Signal Meter but symptoms look rather similar to min...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

I still don't understand why Ch 22 is so sensitive. My family member has a Smart TV that they get the channel 65-70% signal and it looks great. Yet if they turn off/on a desk fan, picture breaks up for a second. Yet, WJAC RF Ch 35, does not seem to do this at all. How does the interference "know" to...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Well, I am totally at a loss what to do now. It was confirmed by a fellow AVSForum User that WJAC for a fact moved their RF 22 to RF 33. Yet, I still can't stop getting TEI errors. I seem to be able to get at least 89%-94% (sometimes 95%) signal strength, at least 91%-98% signal quality, and always ...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

WJAC shouldn't still be on the air at all on 22. That's literally the entire point of a class A broadcast license, being able to kick off lesser signals that interfere with yours. Of course, there could be things going on behind the scenes that they aren't talking about, like maybe Sinclair slippin...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

WJAC responded and stated that all equipment has been ordered and they expect to have it completed by the end of June if all goes to plan.

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

If you're 100% sure that WJAC is still on the air on 22, maybe try contacting the phone numbers and email address for the main studio and closed captioning contacts on https://publicfiles.fcc.gov/tv-profile/wtoo-cd and seeing if you can get a human, and if so, asking them to assert their rights as ...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Just a quick question. If it for a fact 100% is the WJAC-22 interfering with WTOO-22, is there anything that can be done to fix it besides waiting possibly months or longer for WJAC-22 to move to RF 33? I noticed that amplifying the signal obviously doesn't help but also nor does attenuating the sig...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Just a small update.

As of Sat Apr 18th, WJAC-22 is still broadcasting.

So that's two Ch 22 transmitters in the DMA.

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

WJAC's 22 shouldn't even be on the air at all. WTOO is a class A station which gives them priority on the channel and the ability to force WJAC to turn 22 off entirely since it's just a translator and not the main broadcast. You could email engineering@wjactv.com and ask if the channel 22 translato...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

I've actually noticed this myself over the last few months. I have a Connect and Connect Duo and they both do this. Full signals with no fluctuation and watching on a hardwired PC and video errors that cause brief drops. Not sure if it was a firmware update that introduced it, but something changed...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Looking up both stations on RabbitEars I see that WJAC has several repeaters including one on channel 22, same as WTOO. However, it too is low power and far enough away that it probably doesn't affect your reception of WTOO. Well, it looks like in the end, this WJAC repeater probably is the actual ...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

I guess I found out the issue thanks to a person contracting me on another forum. It seems that HC2 Holdings, the channel owner itself is having issues. They stated how they have two HC2 stations in their DNA and get what appears to be the exact same errors. They will be fine watching for minutes th...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Well I made some really nice progress now. I decided to "rescan" the room, to see if there are any better spots that I may have missed. I found a corner of the room on my desk, that actually points to the left of my west (direction of towers) window. Strangely holding the antenna by the window didn'...
