KTMW TV 20 is now broadcasting Telemundo, so apparently Serestar has finally begun airing their own programming. However, along with the Telemundo video there is no audio, at least not on my Comcast feed. Is there anyone who has over the air TV reception that can verify the absence of audio on KTMW, or is this just another Comcast screw-up?
Over the air KTMW 20.1 is running audio, but it's out of phase. That could be causing a problem when Comcast is re-coding it.
Apparently this flip has been known for a couple of months. The website for "Polygamy: What love is this" reported the change back in July, so they knew about it. The consummation of the sale was filed with the FCC Sept 1, so it took a few weeks before the change. The sale of KULX 10 (RF 14) to Serestar still hasn't been approved, and they are still running mostly Telemundo as well. Plus there's the Telemundo owned KEJT 50 that's also still running it. For the moment KULX 10 and KEJT 50 are better bets if you can receive them (they're low power) since they are running at 720p while KTMW is still at 480i. I would expect KULX to flip once the sale is final. KTMW's 20.4 is dark at the moment, so it's reasonable to think 20.1 will go to at least 720p and use that extra bandwidth.
Thanks for the info, CA. I hardly ever check to see what's on KTMW since they quit airing Route 66 during their afternoon block of Retro TV programming. I just happened to be channel surfing this weekend and noticed that the station's Christian programming and Jewelry TV overnights had disappeared. Also, it appears that the station's domain name (http://www.tv20.tv/index.html) is now up for grabs as well.
KMRI 1550 was located at 314 S Redwood Rd, but that was sold as well. That went to the same group that owned the now deleted KXOL and is trying to buy KEGH 107.1.
I did see Jewelry TV on I think it was 20.3 on Sunday. That's now dark and 20.4 is back with what might be the same Spanish channel that was there before the sale. I'm not sure what's going on over there, but things seem a bit chaotic for the moment.
And yes I think the tv20.tv domain appears to have expired. With the sale coming I guess they didn't bother to renew it.
