reposting of the digital transmission info[edit]

I added the info on their digital channels a couple of days ago, and "undid" the reversion, because the digital signal of this station (and all the others) is kind of a critical part of its existence.

I also clarified that a chunk of the former WNYC (channel 31) programming that was brought to WNYE was actually leased time, that is, purchased. (Or as would be called in other venues, infomercials).

And finally, "transit transit", being a 14 y/o program, is certainly a valid portion of their airtime. ____ wiki-ny-2007 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki-ny-2007 (talkcontribs) 20:39, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Response[edit]

1) The digital signal stuff is really trivial. It isn't as "critical" as you claim it to be, and really won't be a factor for another 382 days (at least) when the analog-to-digital transition takes place.

2) The previous version of the article already alludes to the fact that ethnic programming was leased to the outside producers, though it wasn't made directly. To pacify, I'll make a clarification here.

3) Mentioning Transit Transit is also trivial. Before you go there, it is not the same as mentioning the NYC-TV shows or the school district programs from channel 25's previous life. Those shows are unique to the station. Transit Transit is not, as it airs on other NYC-area public access channels as well (see this link [1]).

Digital Transmission[edit]

While we're on the subjectof digital, how about a mention of their sub-channel 25-1, which is available to those with a high definition receiver? It's the only broadcast channel that I know of in NY that streams traffic cams. This is usually limited to those with PCs. It might also be worth mentioning that their signal stregnth has always been terrible, which is evidenced on channel 25-1 (distorted image, noisy audio) and even on their main channel at times.

-- On my digital over-the-air tv set, 25-1 is the digital simulcast (in "standard definition", alas) of their analog signal. 25-2 is the traffic cams. And yes, it's fuzzy and noisy... Wiki-ny-2007 (talk) 04:11, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Old Studios and Transmitter Facilities[edit]

Well since the article now lists WNYE's offices and studios in Manhattan and their transmitter now at the Empire State Building (Also in Manhattan) there is no mention of what happened to the old studios at 112 Tillery Street and transmitter at 29 Fort Green Place both in Brooklyn, Maybe this should be included in the article. What's your opinion? Simon Bar Sinister (talk) 04:51, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

First of all, it's Tillary Street. Secondly, the transmitter on Fort Green Place belongs to WNYE-FM; I don't think WNYE-TV has ever broadcast from that location, and if they did, I've been unable to find that online. As long as I can remember, they've been on ESB. And lastly, it isn't necessary to get that technical for this article. Rollosmokes (talk) 08:07, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
First off, please don't bite my head off ok Rollosmokes, I made a misspelling not a big deal, there is no need to get bent out of shape about it and second WNYE-TV did transmit from 29 Fort Green Place in Brooklyn along with WNYE-FM, when the NYC Board of Education owned both stations they used BOE facilities for the stations, they only moved to ESB after NYC Media Group (aka City of New York) took control of the station.
