Problems with CTV Calgary

For the third day in a row, when I am on CTV Calgary, my picture will start to loop i.e. it stops, rewinds a second or two, plays for a second, rewinds, and so on. This will go on for a while until I intervene and no, I am NOT sitting on the remote  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Other times I will switch to this channel (#104 here in Calgary) but just see a blank screen. I can switch to other channels no problem but when I go back to 104, I just get the blank screen.

I have two Xi6-A bluecurve receiver boxes and these issues occur on both.

Sometimes cold booting the receiver box will solve the issue but not always.

I have had the Bluecurve setup for a number of years and these issues just started happening recently.

Anyone else experiencing these same issues?

@dionysis -- what do you see if you physically go into the local Shaw retail store-front, with your BlueCurve remote-control, and tune one (or all?) of their display TVs to that channel?  Will they escort you out of the store ?  ๐Ÿ™‚

Since Thursday I have watched CTV TV live in Calgary (antenna not cable) and station has been going off the air frequently and there is a chirpy garbling  sound  along with the normal audio last Friday night. There has been a fair bit of technical issues with their transmitter for over a monthโ€ฆwhether or not they will admit it.

@coker7 -- there is a chirpy garbling sound

Can that be attributed to today's provincial election in Alberta?   ๐Ÿ™‚

I have the exact same issue. I called Shaw and requested a replacement Xi6 and they sent out a refrurbished until which did the very same thing. I returned the refurbished player and did a full system reset with the original player and this worked for a few days until the "loopng" began again or selectring channel 104 returns a blank screen. It seems odd that this only happens on CTV Calgary which coker7 attributes to their transmission. Frustrating as hell - anyone know any magical solution?

@BJM -- please read the earlier post on this thread by @coker7  -- it is not the Shaw TV box, nor the Shaw TV infrastructure. Contact the offices of CTV Calgary for the "magic solution".
