ABC East still video

This morning Sunday Nov 17, 9:45am EST

ABC East HD on Classic has a still picture advertising Crime Stoppers.

NO audio. All other channels ok. Did a refresh with no change.

10:15am Problem cleared up.

cmiller Nah! don't want no national lineup! Classic looks pretty good again now that've removed all the "this channel has moved" channels. I switched twice to the National Lineup and both times lost access to Starz on VOD but was fortunately able to switch back to Classic. I'm going to hold out now as long as they allow me to keep my classic lineup.

k801809 Sorry! I missed this while I was traveling for work - CP24 HD should be fixed tomorrow.

On the Stingray channels - they're available in the Music Theme Pack, or all 4 come as one selection in our "Pick Packs" (IE, Pick 10, etc.).

@k801809 , can you get this fixed. Looks like it is not just me.

I took a quick look at the theme packs but don't see them. I have these channels added as part of my Small TV package. These three channels are only counted as one.

NovaMan It is probably done differently in each province; but here in western NS, we get the US network feeds of the games, along with the US commercials. If a game was on CITY or Global than we would get the Canadian feeds, but we do not get CTV or TSN simsubs. It may be different in different areas of the country.

goalsgo When NFL games are broadcast on the US networks as well as a Canadian feed, what does Shaw do with the US channels?

For example today the Steelers and Colts were on both CBS East and CBS West. The East feed was blanked out but not the West feed.

JasperJoe The last couple of times I've tuned into Stingray Loud, Vibe and Retro my 630 says sat. signal lost. Today it said signal lost and it was just sitting there while I did something else for 5 minutes and they came back. I don't have any reception problems on any other channels. Signal was zero when signal lost but I didn't check when they were back.

What's up with that?

Thanks, that worked but too bad it doesn't remove CP24 at the same time.
