You know that the CRTC can shut down Star Ray TV because it doesn't meet CRTC Standards.

The CRTC won't even give Star Ray TV a License to broadcast over the air of any kind (analog & digital)

I say it because of my photographic memory dating back from 2000 to 2007 relating Star Ray TV even if i was never born and raise in Toronto, Thanks Internet.

Not to be mean but that how the Canadian TV Czar Works.

Peace Out

I'm getting a whiff of a signal near Bayview and Davisville with a Terk indoor antenna. My living room window faces west, instead of southeast towards Star Ray's broadcast tower, so it's less-than-ideal conditions for me (third floor of a building). But, it's more than I used to get with the 15 analogue signal, once upon a time.

If chex is still in analog Star ray going to cause interference to chex.Chex has coverage map to all of scarboro.

CHEX on 22 comes in strong here in Stouffville, so I wouldn't have a chance getting it but i heard they are going ATSC next year. I'm less than 20 miles from their transmitter. I don't think CHEX 22 reaches Scarboro but CHEX 12 might

CHEX Oshawa is directional west toward Toronto it fills in coverage for Durham,Oshawa to Pickering that CHEX Peterboro cant reach.I have seen it in the summer many times.The posted coverage maps show all of Scarboro.

I've never seen anyone post that they get reception in Toronto for CHEX-DT, or CHEX 22.

Dundas and DVP picture is poor to fair but no sound. There is constant break up in the picture.

Oh sure...I'm out at a coffee shop quietly working on a DB migration and I make the mistake of "just checking" the OTA threads. See this Star Ray one, ssh into my MythTV box and run the channel checker script.

At Yonge & Eg:

RF Strnght Quality Symbol Virtual Name Virt#2 Name
------------------------------------------------------------------------
22 100 67 100 : 15.1 StarRay

Will have to wait until I'm home to actually see the picture. For now, back to work!

Antennas Direct C2V antenna pointed @ curved building NE. DB4e pointed SSE. Cable free since May 2011.

Could I get Star Ray TV on my side of the lake? I have a good clear LOS to the CN Tower.

Maybe someone in Toronto who can receive it without errors can report on whether it is now "crystal clear" rubbish Commodore 64 computer graphics... :-)

I've never seen it myself, so I can't comment on "content".
