General Forum Announcements / Site Outage 7/4/20-7/20/20

If you tried to access the site anytime in the past day, you likely encountered an error.  DreamHost, the company that hosts this site had a hardware failure on the machine that this site resides on.  It took them the better part of the last 24 hours to rebuild the machine ans restore it from backups.  The issue was resolved by around 4pm CT, but issues continued with my account.  When I realized there was still issues I alerted their support staff, who were finally able to get things back up and running. 

I do apologize for this, and will be better at making my own backups of my sites should issues like this happen again.

Well, it seems a year has gone by and not much has changed.   Anyone still out there?

I do welcome any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc people may have however on how to liven things up though.  It would still be nice to see more activity here.

Latest News / Post Rescan Changes
Wednesday Oct 16, 2019, 09:43:04 pm
Once the re-pack is done on the 18th,  post any changes you've seen here.  Channels you used to have but lost, increases/decreases in signal strength etc

Quote from: Riktar on Wednesday Oct 16, 2019, 06:59:18 amHas anyone heard what time on the 18th the channels will switch?

IE: Witi at 7am, TMJ at noon, etc.

Or should I just tell the wife to stay on Netflix til I get home from work? ;-)


I'd recommend telling her to stay on Netflix.   If I had to venture a guess,  I'd say they would probably do the switch overnight, so a re-scan in the morning would probably be good

Yup,   all the "0" stations are stations that took place in the spectrum auction

Anyone know who is moving where?

The CBS one is probably WFRV in Green Bay..

I simple reboot may fix this too.  After the speed increase takes place on the backend, sometimes its necessary for the modem to reboot to see the new profile

General Forum Announcements / Website Front Page

I'm debating removing the main website, the one you see by going to milwaukeehdtv.org, and having it just redirect to the forums.   My reasoning is two-fold.  For one, the look and feel of that page, versions the forum.  I don't know enough (well anything) about css to be able to modify that page to match the color scheme used by the forum software.   Secondly, the info on that page is way out of date.  While I haven't looked at the stats lately, I'd venture a guess now that the majority of actual uses (read traffic other than bots) goes straight to the forum, or at least goes to the front page and then clicks the forum link.   

I can archive stuff like the old chats somewhere here, or off the main forum page, and the actual content will still live on the server, I'll just put an redirect to go here.   

Thoughts? Comments?

Milwaukee HDTV Technical Issues / Re: Cheap indoor FM antenna

Kinda depends on where you live, and what you want to get..   I live on the south end of Nashville, the majority of the radio stations either on the northern edge of the county of the eastern edge.   I get the local stations in just fine with a short wire antenna.  Haven't really tried for the fringe station. 

I'd imagine rabbit ears would probably be fine as long as it's VHF rabbit ears
