Agreed! They eliminated the two good sub channels.

Default Weather moving to 10.3

I see that MeTv is shown on 10.2, even though it is still weather and weather is duplicated on 10.3.
I'm glad to see that the weather will still be available when they launch MeTv on Sept. 27. Though with all of these sub-channels, I worry about reduced quality of the main channel.

Default RTV No Longer Carried...

Just tuned to 2.3 (WGRZ RF33) and I see colour bars with the alternating messages:

WGRZ 2-3


A Sad day for RTV. Damnit, I just started following DaVinci's Inquest on this station!

(Just an additional note: TiVo Listings show this channels as "SIGN OFF" as of midnight on Friday 16/Saturday 18th Sept 2011)

bummer no doubt.
Still there on the CBAND mux on AMC3 87 W, 4060 H 29125, there's a program there listed as WGRZ and it's still there, an RTV feed that's been there all along.

Ironic that withthe increasing popularity of OTA, we seem to be losing stations lately as opposed to gaining them (think SUN as well).

Things will change over time, some will stay, some will go, new ones will pop up. DTV OTA is still in it's infancy. Let's be patient.

I liked RTV at one time. A few months ago they changed almost their entire lineup. The Rockford files, Adam 12, ,Emergency, Dragnet, Alfred Hitchcock, Battlestar Galactica, Black Sheep Squadron, and others all disappeared this past spring. I can understand shows coming and going, but they wiped out all the good stuff at the same time. So I can't say I'm sad to see it go. My wife was sick of the Rockford Files being on every night at 10 anyway, so she's happy.

And now Universal Sports is about to go away too. In case you didn't know NBC is owned by a cable company now (Comcast).

Good! Increase the bandwidth back to 100% on 2-1.

WGRZ 2.3 signal is now gone and I don't see any improvement on the 2.2 sports quality There was just a bicycle race on UN-sports a few minutes ago and it looked like it had been recorded using a cell phone

Other than 2.3 disappearing, Has anyone else noticed a signal drop on 49.1 today, or is it just due to this overcast drizzle.

Universal Sports is on DirecTV down here in the US, and it looks no better than on the sub channel. They just have a really crappy feed/equipment. Maybe they plan on upgrading it when they go to cable but by then it won't matter.
