That's the third time you've logged WOLF22 as new, too much aiming fuel? :)
I did a forum search for WVIZ and you only mentioned rf34 so I thought rf35 would be new for you. I can't believe WVIZ35 didn't come in strong enough to lock over here before CHCJ came back on-air. Grabbed a bunch of stuff tonight but nothing new.

1:22 - RF28 (10.1-3, 62.1-2) WCAU Philadelphia, PA
7:53 - RF27 (34.1-4) WIVT Binghamton, NY
(had the hdhomerun_config_gui parked on rf27 while I slept, so not sure what time this came in)

3 time's the charm I guess, lol. No aiming fluid tonight, can't fathom how my brain screwed that up, so no new one on rf22 but a new one on rf35. Thanks for pointing that out.

Has Silicon Dust given you an anticipated shipping date on your new tuner?

No shipping date yet, they posted a couple recent updates and they're hoping to get the units from the factory in late September.

11:55 pm, (New) CBLFT Toronto is now on RF23 VC25. I didn't know that this station was moving. Where did Global Paris go?

Went over to the live bandscan report on Rabbitears and it shows Global Paris on RF23 and CBLFT on RF25. Now, I'm really confused!

Last night the call sign on RF23 was CBLFT, and it mapped out to VC25. I wasn't getting any signal at all on RF25 and no CIII Global anywhere. I find this strange because I can normally get Global Paris anytime I point NW. I wonder if it is off the air? However, I saw that orbot had captured CBLFT on RF25 and Global on RF23. Maybe I need to start taking drugs. Confusing.

I saw lots of tropo last night but never had CBC Toronto lock on (only CN tower that locked was cfto on my antenna with no VHF elements..) had global working all night from Paris as normal.

Scratch that, switched to the global Paris feed and although everything looks correct it is in fact running a French comedy show and ici - CBC logo in the corner.

Hopefully this gets sorted out.

I wouldn't hold your breath. I sent an email yestereday to Global pointing out the problem. This morning I received an automated reply directing me to the contact page which I used to send them the email I had sent? I don't think they are too interested or care about OTA reception. They seem to be focused on news which they use to push a certain viewpoint not accurately report recent developments. Rather than journalists, they have the best actors money can buy. Just my opinion.

Looks like they addressed the issue in a slap dash fashion, it now reverts to VC41 but with the correct Global feed. I can't believe they are so disorganized that they ended up broadcasting someone else' tv station. I bet the folks at CBLFT thought it was too funny to bother contacting them to point out the problem.

2:45pm Looks like they fixed the vc

Well as long as the correct feed is coming through that's good enough for me. They have never even had the program guide working so I know what you mean about lackluster ota care.

Regardless about the news viewpoint it's one of the only channels (often the only one I get during the day) that consistently provided the live reports from Mr. Ford and with streaming not an option on my internet and kiddos heading back to school it was nice to have.
