Re: This TV 4.2 OTA

I don't get this channel over the air. Is it new? WHNE-LD has been operating from its Oak Park location since 2014. Was on Virtual 14 (RF20) until last repack. Now on low VHF3 (Virtual and RF) since spring 2020. Low power 3 kW on low VHF makes for difficult reception for many in metro area. Too bad...

Re: TV Stations with the most technical difficulties

On my kit, via Xfinity/Comcast X1, Fox2 is always out of audio sync, worse on network feeds, espec. NFL. Other channels OK.

Re: Hmmm,is the news drought at CBS62 about to come to an end?

Keep in mind, the CBS stations division, CBS News Division, and the CBS television network are separate entities. Managers are hired to make their own divisions profitable, not somebody else's division. Clearly, station management and those to whom they report at the stations division aren't much i...

What station plays that LMFAO song with the Korean guy in a suit dancing all over the place?
"Gangnam Style" by Psy. Nine years ago, burned itself out, kind of like the Macarena.

Re: Takes Place In Detroit

Thoughts on "American Auto?" New NBC sitcom from "Superstore" creators. "Takes Place in Detroit" with "Payne Motors" as a car company run by a bunch of clueless idiots. I loved the executive conference room, where the views of "Detroit" seen through the H*** windows showed all those hills and mounta...

Re: Hmmm,is the news drought at CBS62 about to come to an end?

Saw a new face on 62 doing the weather last night. Forgot her name but just wondering if she was part of the new cohort? Neither Stacy DuFord nor Kylee Miller are new faces on 62. They have both been doing weather segments subbing for Karen Carter for a couple of years, more so after April Moss' de...

Re: WMYD 20.1 gave up the ghost

I do believe with certainty that my TV does have an ATSC 3.0 tuner because I remember picking up the test signals and simulcasts just before the last repack. But that also has effected the channels I used to get. ... 😔 If you do have an ATSC 3.0 tuner you would likely not be having any trouble with...

Re: WMYD 20.1 gave up the ghost

The subject says it all -- WMYD 20.1 has disappeared in Monroe County. I can only pick up 20.2 Antenna TV with a 💯 signal on my Vizio V505-G9 but nothing else. I'm at the corner of Telegraph and Stewart in a 2nd floor apartment with my indoor YAGI pointed towards Ann Arbor. Today (and only today, I...

Re: Enhancing LP sound on Crosley Multi-Function Players

Critical links in the chain- stylus and cartridge, tonearm, platter, drive motor, preamp. Don’t skimp if you like your music and the vinyl that it’s on. On the back end, quality amp and speakers to deliver it all to the critical listener's ear.

John O'Leary RIP

John O'Leary has passed away. Many will remember him from multiple past stops along the Detroit Rock FM dial, WABX, WWWW, WLLZ, others. Details will probably be available later from the usual sites.

Speaking of Most Annoying, fortunately have not lately seen any "Sold By Z" with realtor Mark Z and his annoying children. Unfortunately, Mark "Sold by Z" has recently returned to to local commercial spot breaks. This time, his still-annoying children whine that he's replaced them with "new" kids, ...
