CHCH has never been 780i (don't think that's a real broadcast or media resolution anyway?) for as long as I've had OTA. They've always broadcast at 1080i, regardless of content. I've never seen them switch between resolutions depending on content, they've just upscaled anything SD to 1080i.

This drop to 480i is new since Monday, probably they had some hardware failure. It also looks like it's just our local feed, CHCH-DT-1

Yep, and before that, the picture was frozen part of Saturday and all Sunday on an old Mickey Rooney movie while the audio was live.

It started on the 24th when it was just broadcasting the audio with a freeze frame of some old 1930's movie.. Came back on the 25th around noon, but it was 480i when it recovered... they mentioned via a tweet it was due to the wind storm at the time...

Almost a month later and still 480i on CHCH 11.1. Beginning to wonder if they ever plan on fixing this.

Just sent them a tweet to see if they have any ETA to return to HD.

CHCH has been back in HD in Ottawa for a week or two.

anyone else in the ottawa-gatineau area noticed that chch is apparently not broadcasting since, what, yesterday?
i don't remember them changing frequencies, is there anything special happening with them?

cheers.

Rescan your channels. CHCH may have changed something that your tv doesn't like. My old Panasonic doesn't auto update and I have to rescan when I lose a channel. My new Panasonic will automatically correct as required.

just turned on the toshiba and chch is visible again. visited their webpage to see if there was any status information for ottawa... nothing of the sort.

hopefully this won't happen again soon.

CHCH has been disappeared (for me) a few days ago, rescan did not resolve the issue.
