Wednesday – August 8th Update

Wow, we are having a slew of bad luck with our diginet feeds this month.  Unrelated to the problems that affected some of our diginet feeds earlier in the week, yesterday we lost one of our Charge! feeds due equipment failure issues at the broadcaster.  We are hoping to have the signal back in the next day or two as the broadcaster fixes their issues.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  More details to follow.

August 16th update – We finally got the Charge! feed issue resolved shortly after midnight this morning.  One of the two broadcast feeds we require went offline due to a lightning strike on the broadcast tower on 8/7.  It took them until today to get their broadcast tower back online.   We’re hoping no more acts of God for awhile and we thank everyone for your patience.

Tuesday – August 7th Update

From 1AM – 5AM this morning, our provider had a technical issue with one of their routers causing us to lose feeds on the following networks:


For AVS: The above networks in addition to ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX feeds.

We apologize for our inability to report airings on these networks during this time frame.

Wednesday – August 1st Update

Bounce and Laff are offline since yesterday evening.  In the case of broadcast digital networks, DRMetrix monitors two affiliate feeds from different markets and compares the commercials between the two.  Commercials appearing at the same time in both markets are assumed to be national and reported.  In one of the two markets we’re monitoring the broadcast station carrying Bounce and Laff went offline due to equipment issues on their end.   We don’t have an ETA yet on when these signals will return to normal.  In the interim, we are actively working to find alternate feeds.   We will update when we have more details.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Update 9:30PM – We were able to secure alternative feeds to get Bounce and Laff back online this evening.
