ctv winnipeg

Anyone else have any problems with ctv Winnipeg?

It went off line for hours a few nights ago, and although back, I'm only getting an unwatchable 30% signal stegnth (was 80-90% before the first outage).

I wonder what's going on....

CTV Winnipeg ...

@acedetective

I can confirm that there is something seriously wrong with the CTV Winnipeg signal. It used to be at a signal strength of 89% and signal quality of 100% here. Now it is at a signal strength of 59% and signal quality of 67%-76% with regular dropouts.

We haven't noticed anything with CTV Winnipeg, as of late, other than it was out the other night. I did a scan yesterday for somebody & it picked it up with rabbit ears. I have noticed that Global Winnipeg has been a bit, chirpy as of late. That could be due to the extreme winds we've been having.

CTV Winnipeg... CBC?

I lost CTV Winnipeg Thursday and Friday, but it's back now at 80% NK Winnipeg.

BTW any word on CBC's digital transmitter progress?

Yeah, it came back up to full strength for me too, a few hours after my initial post. Go figure

I know they're working on it, but still 4X3 most of the day. Just children's programming in the morning has correct aspect.

Curious - the CBC French channel (CBKFT-DT) appears to have correct 16X9 aspect throughout the day...

Joytv channel 35 aspect ratio

They seem to intend to send a SD signal. I have never seen any HD at all. The strange thing is that they are upconverting to a 1080 line signal for no reason I can see. This makes it so you get double letterboxing when they do try to send something that originally had a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Perhaps they have a misconfiguration somewhere...

CTV Winnipeg

I was getting CTV with an el cheapo antenna but now it has stopped. I don't think I have changed anything and I am still getting Global and JoyTV.

Did CTV change something or am I going to have to give in and buy/make a decent antenna to get it again?

Global Regina

I noticed I was not receiving a signal from Global Regina this morning (October 18th) before I left for work. I hope it is just temporary and that I am not the only one.

My Global was out too (~7:15 am).

I've also noticed the last couple of days that my Radio-Canada (13-1) signal has gone from about 87% to about 50%. Still no visible dropouts but that's pretty significant.
