WIN Canberra Technical Issues

January 6th, 2009 at 07:50pm

WIN TV seem to be having some issues tonight. Their digital signal keeps disappearing, and every time it does, it takes the analogue station with it, simply leaving a blank grey screen behind.

Apparently it’s happening in Wagga Wagga as well.

More information if and as it comes to hand.

Update 7:50pm: Well it’s been a good fifteen minutes of nothing from WIN this time around so far, and I just retuned a digital received and it failed to recognise WIN and its selection of channels (HD etcetera) at all. End Update

Update 8:05pm: Well that’s half an hour, and WIN analogue just changed from a grey screen to a black screen. Digital is still out. End Update

Update 8:08pm: Analogue and Digital just came back to life. Hopefully the problem doesn’t re-occur as it happened during Nine News for brief periods as well. End Update

Update 9:12pm: Off-air again, and they have been for at least the last 25 minutes. End Update

    It’s now 8.54 pm and there’s no picture on WIN, just a black screen.

    Yep, it’s been like that for about the last 25 minutes at least.

    Looks like it’s fixed now, but it’s rather annoying as I wanted to watch “Collateral Damage” from start to finish.

    Samuel … Israeli tanks have just rolled in to Gaza. Women and children are dying – who cares about your trivial and petty grievances? And why is John B1_B5 allowed to post under ever numerous tolerated pseudonyms?

    I know how this post will result – another banning without any justification!

    Just spirit genuine critics away and let creepy old John go about his merry way!

    I look forward to your Stalinist censorship and your crappy’, long winded and pointless, justification of it!

    “Oh, a lot to adress there … let me do this point by point” .., the point “, Sammy. oh. sorry, that’s another banning offence – insn’t it? – is that you have no point!

    I used to think that you were some hgh falltuing conspiracy – now I have been struck inbetween the eyes with a perfect diamond and realise you are just a deluded kid.

    And I fully expect this post to be censored!

    Oh … my comment is awaiting moderation – why don’t you moderate all of John B1_B5’s many alter egos? DISCRIMINATION! I bet you are too gutless to allow the previous post through!

    Riiiight…so a war in the middle east should prevent me from remaining interested in things which usually interest me, such as unusual technical difficulties at a local television station. I’ll let the idiocy of your long-winded statement speak for itself.

    Conspiracy theories about me are fine, but refrain from conspiracy theories about other contributors to this blog.

    I don’t suppose you happen to have a copy of Police Ten Seven which I was trying to watch last night and couldn’t watch because of WIN’s technical issues?
