    More Doctor J OTA Homework

    Doctor J took the time to update his chart illustrating



    • the date each DMA got its first OTA update
    • the date each DMA got a subsequent OTA update



    We have now had 18 OTA Update occurrences.

    There is a wealth of information here. Thank you Doctor J for the initiative and the analysis !!

    Great data guys, thanks for sharing. Now I know that since my market is one of the 36, time to scan again. I omitted sub-channels from the OTA Guide that were not updated before, looks like most if not all have programming data now.

    Did you notice that the new subs do not show the proper channel name? When i had the ce fw scan they showed up correct (escape) but with no programming (just showed regular schedule for 12hrs) now that the database updated it has guide data but the channel name shows up wyoudt2 which is my local callsign.

    That's because when the Genie scans and finds stations not in the database it uses the PSIP label from the Virtual Channel Table in the station's signal, but now that it's in the database it uses the callsign provided by Gracenote.

    These are the 7/3/19 OTA Updates, displayed in our usual Analysis format. These are all updates to existing OTA stations already in the database, not new records being added.
