Currently CTV is the host for analog TVGOS in Toronto. WNED (PBS) hosts a digital TVGOS for Buffalo. Does anybody know what will happen at the end of August? Will CTV host a digital version of TVGOS? Or not host anything at all? Another channel?

Thanks.

I'm sure they'll go to digital like WNED did.

From what I can tell, it still appears that the CTV analog TVGOS is still working (although I dont really know how many days buffer it has so if it has stopped, perhaps it will take me a while to know).

Apparentlt it does, no means to check. The following is the CFTO HD full parsing of TSReader taken from [Link: rabbitears.info] which BTW is also listing CKVR as a digital TVGOS. At the end of the list on that webpage you will see several other CTV stations accross canada that already are an active digital TVGOS host.

I highlighted the whooping over 16 Mbps video bitrate that signal had when parsed and also the full bitrate at 19.42 Mbps. Also the section for the TVGOS service.  The null packets at the end are needed to always fill the gap between (how do you spell this man!, lol) the maximum bitrate 19.42 and the actual one depending on the video scene (less motion less info to broadcast). Hardcore digital broadcast fans will rejoice with this TSReader info I guess. All you need is a PC based ATSC tuner and the software TSReader.

It appears CFTO has stopped supplying TVGOS data as of last Wednesday.

Anyone confirm this?

Looks like it. I have data up to Thursday 3AM and then nada. This past Thursday I also had a power outage, and the clock on my Sony DHG-HDD500 hasn't come back (meaning the whole thing is now useless for anything except being a dumb live TV tuner).

I haven't looked too far ahead, but the TV guide on my Pioneer Kuro is off by about an hour and the clock has not reset, might have been around Thursday for us too.
Great no more on screen TV guide, have to find a good web site and use PIP I guess.

This is a big problem for the Sony DHG series, because they failed to put in a method of manually setting the clock... and what use is a DVR without a clock?

Even more annoying, the network jack that would've allowed internet updates was cost-cut before production. You can still see the blank space on the board and the cutout in the back of the case.
