6/22-23 CH9 & CH54 Over The Air Virtual ID issues

June 23, 2017 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQED · Comments Off on 6/22-23 CH9 & CH54 Over The Air Virtual ID issues 

(DT9-1, 9-2 and 9-3, DT54-1 thru 54-5)

KQED experienced a technical issue with the “Virtual ID” in our over the air signal, starting apx 4pm Thursday, and resolved apx 11am Friday.

Almost every TV station in the Bay Area now transmits on a frequency which is different from their old analog number. Each station’s signal contains Virtual ID info which tells your TV to label the channel by its old number.

KQED now transmits on frequency 30, but its Virtual ID tells your TV to label it as 9. KQED Plus now transmits on frequency 50 but its Virtual ID tells your TV to label it as 54. This is the feature which stopped working last night.

If your TV still can’t find us on “9”, dial in “30”. If your TV still can’t find us on “54”, dial in “50” You should find our programming there. If not, please email us. Many TVs will self-correct in anything from a few minutes to a couple hours. If your TV doesn’t self-correct within a couple of hours and move us back to “9” and/or “54” then you will need to do a rescan. Please refer to your owner’s manual for rescan instructions.

Our over the air viewers in the Monterey/Salinas region were not affected by this issue since KQET’s signal is one of the few signals still transmitting on its original frequency of “25.”

If you have any further questions please feel free to email us at:
tv@kqed.org

Differences in outside listings with KQED broadcasts

March 12, 2012 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQED, KQED Plus, KQET · Comments Off on Differences in outside listings with KQED broadcasts 

Paid service providers such as cable or satellite companies, and other scheduling sources such as newspapers or online websites, buy their guide data from outside listing companies. KQED sends correct listings information for all of our programming streams to these outside listing companies 5-8 weeks in advance of our broadcasts. This includes info for KQED, KQED Plus, KQED Life, KQED World and KQED Kids.

Unfortunately, the listings companies are not always up-to-date with the data that comes from local independent stations (PBS or otherwise) which set their own local schedules, rather than follow a single national schedule that can be used for the whole country, as most national networks and channels do. Or the paid service providers might not have run updates they receive from the listings services. So occasionally some onscreen guides, newspapers, etc., have listings for 1 or more KQED channels that do not accurately reflect our schedules.

KQED’s own website will always have the most accurate information. The same database that runs our Master Control area also populates our website. This change page will report the changes that have been made since OnQ, our supporting members’ program guide, went to the printer, and since our schedule data was sent to the outside listings companies. The only differences will be those rare technical problems, as described in the “unannounced changes” posting below.

KQED 9/KQED Plus unannounced program changes

December 2, 2011 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQED, KQED Plus, KQET · Comments Off on KQED 9/KQED Plus unannounced program changes 

Once in awhile, there will be last-minute program changes which will not be noted on this page. Occasionally, there are incidents when our automation equipment simply refuses to play a program. The show is queued up ready to go, but when the start time hits, it simply refuses to play. So the engineers quickly find a similar program already in the memory bank to air as a substitute, and there’s no chance to post anything about the change on this page.

If you don’t see any notes here regarding the program you’re interested in, please feel free to email tv@kqed.org when you notice one of these unannounced changes, and we will check with the programming folks to find out if the program will be rescheduled relatively quickly, or simply allowed to come back up in its next normal rotation spot.
