TVO is up and running in Ottawa on 24-1. The HD picture looks great!

TVO HD

Good HD signal in Ottawa. I am surprised to see HD or SD widescreen programming already. TVO was obviously well prepared for this transition. Have they previously been sending an HD signal direct to BDU anywhere?

Was able to snag 28.1 this morning before leaving for work. Signal strength is a little lower than I expected (50-55% on my Aquos) but it locked in. While it's only SD the picture quality of the TVOKids programming was excellent.

Looking forward to the Toronto transition on Thursday!

Both channels 18 and 28 are being received with strong signals, but no pic. DTVPal seems to think it is an audio only channel. Samsung and HDHomerun both receive it fine-

I tweeted @tvo -- they'll get back to me on the 1080i for London. I'll post here if nobody else finds out first.

TVO 18.1 now up and running in London (?!)

I didn't see 18.1 last night (early evening) but as of right now (10 am) I'm seeing TVO on 18.1 here in London. What's the RF channel?

I also did not see 19.1 last night, and I'm still not seeing it. Anyone else? Ok, never mind, I'm getting 19.1. I swear I got no digital channels at all last night (8 pm-ish).

I don't see TVO in Toronto yet. What are the physical and logical tuning numbers?

TVO out of Toronto on RF19 isn't making the switch until Thursday night/Friday morning. The TVO that did switch was RF28. It is now full digital coming in at 28.1, out of Kitchener, or London or something of the sort.

Currently, TVO Toronto on RF19 is still analog. So if your right in the midst of Toronto, you may not get those other locations...just be patient.

I think it's actually Thursday morning that TVO Toronto will be digital on RF19.

100% OTA since July 2010!

TVO conversion

London TVO digtial is coming is fine as of Tuesday, but only 1 out of 3 of my converters will convert the station. Other 2 find it but states there is no signal. Any suggestions? All the US stations have been coming in fine ever since they switched.

From what ScaryBob posted in the London OTA thread, it looks like bad data in the TVO signal. http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/show...10#post1297310

Hopefully, when/if they go HD on it they'll fix that setting. (Should be MPEG-2 rather than DC-II video.)
