Dallas Texas CW 133.1

Post by Grumbles »

All I get is a blank screen. No video, no audio. What am I doing wrong? The other ATSC 3.0 channels are fine. I put in a new outside antenna, but that didn’t help.

It is possible they are transmitting a black picture and silence - we have seen that before.

Can you please turn on "send diagnostic information" in the HDHomeRun app settings menu, view the channel for 5 minutes, then post back with the Device ID of your HDHomeRun.

Expecting the Dallas ATSC 3.0 broadcast to actually work correctly. I don't know whether they don't know what they're doing or just don't care, but it's never been right. KDAF is indeed just a black screen being broadcast, and KDFW still has the alternate audio track (either Spanish or audio description) mixed in with the primary audio.

As of today (June 18) the 133.1 station is transmitting video instead of black. It looks like it is a poor interlaced video feed that has been deinterlaced as graphics "jump" up and down.

There is an audio stream but I do not have a AC-4 decoder so I can't listen.

It has the same problem as Fox, the English 5.1 track has both the English and alternate (usually Spanish) audio, and the Spanish stereo track is silent. And yes, the deinterlacing is severely hosed. They ought to just dump the entire thing and go back to 1.0 operation.

Have video back on 133.1. 104.1 has gone black for me now despite 100% x3 in signal strength and quality. And as others have mentioned would always get the alternate audio on Fox previously, was always the robotic weather alerts read aloud when those were active now just silence.
