Anyone having issues with psip on chan-dt? I have had it occasionally say "Global TV" but most of the time there is nothing. This started Monday for me, I think.

I can think of a few places in which an indoor antenna will be okay for all the Mt. Seymour stations, but otherwise I'd have to say no for most of the Lower Mainland. Time will tell.

22.1 22.2 22.3

Does that mean that the I lose Joe TV on 22.1? How about the other sub-channels 22.2 and 22.3? Or will they re-map somewhere else?

My reception is "okay" so that I usually have enough signal but if 22.1 is going to be beaming in strong from Mt. seymour , will it swamp the Seattle repeaters?

If you receive CHAN-22 and KZJO-25 now, you should remain fine. CHAN-22 is not changing channels.

laurienicol - as mentioned, you should have no problem getting 22.1 KZJO after 22.1 CHAN boosts its power this August. You are picking up RF25 KZJO directly from their Seattle transmitter, as they are not using any repeaters. The other Seattle 1000 KW UHF channels (KOMO, KING, KIRO), are using repeaters, but they are low power and too far from the border to reach us in the Lower Mainland.

CHNM-DT 20.1    20.1    42.1    OMNI      8300   4300   Mt. Seymour
CHAN-DT 22.1    22.1    8.1     GLOBAL   40000  22000   Mt. Seymour
CIVT-DT 33.1 >  32.1    32.1    CTV      33000  12000   Mt. Seymour
CKVU-DT 47.1 >  33.1    10.1    CITYTV    8300   4300   Mt. Seymour

will chnu reach some parts of the lower mainland without having to re-aim the antenna? assuming most of the other digital signals come in fine...this probably depends on the antenna right...i think i just answered my own question lol

I'm getting a full lock on both right now. All of the Mt. Seymour DTV stations are fine for me.
