For 5 days I was experiencing the problem above with the KVOS group of channels and yesterday morning the problem cleared and the channels are still ok this morning. Now that's a head-scratcher. I'm thinking, even though no one else replied to this forum with any similar problem, the problem had something to do with the KVOS transmitter on Orcas Island. There are two transmitters on Orcas Island, for KVOS and for KBTC. I never had any issue with receiveing from KBTC.
Before my first posting to this forum, I did look for a contact for KVOS to see if I could ask them about their transmitter. The only avenue that seemed available was the KVOS TV facebook page. So I sent them a question via the fb messenger on Dec 15th. I never did get any reply, but maybe they took notice and found some issue with their transmitter.
I don't see how the problem could have been with my DVR as it isn't very likely that the electronics inside developed a problem and then fixed itself 5 days later, especially knowing that I never had any problem with any other channels other than KVOS.
Yesterday I was all prepared to buy a DVR ATSC device on amazon because of this issue, but I decided to check the KVOS group one last time before ordering, and voila! I could hardly believe it was working again. That was a really close call.
