WMNT-CD repack, with SNAFU!

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Does Jesse Weatherby still own WMNT?

WMNT disappeared off the face of the Earth. Can't they stay on RF48 until xxxx date?

They're back on-the-air, but still showing up on 36.

so they lack even the engineering to work the 'pointer' so when someone punches in 48.2 virtual channel that it goes to RF 36.2?
Isn't 36 still on 49 until the end of the transition?

46.

I wonder where WMNT-CD got their ATSC encoder. Though they carry NO HD content, the picture quality is awful (barely joking when I say that their .2 stream is in "120i")

It appears that they have never had a virtual channel. Some devices would display 48.x, but only because the device would recall the RF channel and display it. These same devices now display 36.x. Some devices don't do this

My Ikonvert box displays their channels as 0-0 PR250001 through 0-0 PR250004.

I would think so. The FCC shows the owner as Matrix Broadcasting Group and Mr. Weatherby identifies himself as the owner of Matrix Broadcasting Group on LinkedIn.
