Power outage causes viewing/listening problems
Sat June 28, 2014
All Systems Go in Huntington & Charleston
2:56 p.m. -- We should be back to full service for WV PBS in Huntington and Charleston as well as WVWV radio in Huntington -- INCLUDING Suddenlink customers. The problem was related to the power issues yesterday that caused our system to re-boot improperly. We've manually set it and are running a backup generator as well. We will continue to monitor and make course corrections as needed. Thanks again for supporting West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
12:51 p.m. -- Well, now our television service in Huntington and Charleston are having a lot of problems. The cause is unknown. Engineers are on their way. We also know that WVWV radio in Huntington is having problems, so it appears the problems are inter-related. We will keep you posted as our engineers work to solve this and thank you for your continued patience.
7 a.m. Sunday -- It's maddening, but we continue to have problems with WPBY-TV on Suddenlink. It may be Monday before we can work things out. Thank you for your patience.
5:00 p.m. -- Our engineers tell us that all TV and radio service should be restored. Thank you for your patience as we dealt with the Charleston downtown power outage.
1:05 p.m. -- Downtown Charleston still doesn't have power so our Suddenlink viewers may still be experiencing problems. We are feeding the programming, but Suddenlink is having issues on its end due to the power outage.
11:00 a.m. -- We are back up on radio and Suddenlink cable. Thanks for bearing with us. Apparently all of downtown was affected.
Original post: 10:03 a.m.: West Virginia Public Radio network is down because of a power problem in our Charleston headquarters. This problem also affects Suddenlink viewers in the Charleston/Huntington area.
Our engineers are rushing to fix the problem. Thank you for your patience.
