Default wtic.dt channel 61.1

Yesterday I was watching Fox on channel 61.1 digital when all of a sudden the screen went blank. I checked signal strength and it was at 92 percent. All other channels that I receive were working perfectly. Called Fox and they say that there was nothing wrong on their end. My T.V. Tech said that they were full of Bull----. Has anyone else had the same problem with fox on channel 61.1 iin Connecticut? I receive my hdtv signals with an off-air-antenna that works wonderfully.

I was watching 61.1 off-air the other night during the game, and the PSIP information seemed to go crazy several times during the game: sometimes it was on Channel 61.1, and other times it was on 31.3. I have a feeling that the problem is on the station's end with their PSIP encoder. Fortunately, my LG LST 3100 tuner managed to follow the signal without a break, but it was aggriavating, to say the least.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad to hear that I am not the only one with this problem.

Default Channel 61.1

I am wondering if channel 61.1 has become 31.3. I can now receive programming on 31.3 but not 61.1. 31.3 is the Fox channel wtic-dt. If this is so why wasn't there any notification of the change?

Default I'm having the same problem.

As of Tuesday, Sept 13 I was getting WTIC 61-1 over the air. We watch the premiere of House. This tuesday, the 20th, we couldn't get the HD picture over the air, and it's been out since then. I get a good signal when I check, but when I scan channel 31, it doesn't recognize the channel. It's as if there's a problem decoding the station ID. I called 61 and they told me the same thing, that nothing's changed.

Default Any luck yet

I tried both 61 + 31 for the nfl games but they did not work. Also did anyone notice that channel 3.1 started the cinn/chicago game in hd and 3.2 had the jets/eagles game in non hd then 3.1 changed to the jets/eagles game in non hd after about 5 min.

WTIC-DT is on 31.1 on my sony 34XBR960 and is up. 61.1 doesn't work. How about PBS any news on when 24 is going digital and what channel it will be?

I live in central Ma and get Ch 61 DT.

They do not encode the channel information properly in the DT signal. I called them
last year to tell them that because they're not following the standard my tuner not only
will not deode the ch 31 dt part but also stops the analog ch 61 signal from being
decoded. They denied any problem and said it's my set but the fact is that WTIC is the
only station out of 11 that causes any problem.

If you can disable channel information in your tuner the problems will go away.

In Plainville, you can stick a mostened finger in the air and get 30.1 and 61.1! They are on Rattlesnake Mountain probably 5 or 6 miles from the house:tops! Channel 8.1 is 30 miles away, and you need a VHF outdoor antenna to get it if you are north of Middletown.
