Marin TV Programming Issues

March update - Our tired server returned refreshed after a brief vacation in the Midwest and we upgraded software across the board which of course caused new minor conflicts we are still sorting out - but your Marin TV is back to normal.




- original post -

You may have noticed some programming disruptions this week on Marin TV Channels 26 and 30 - please be aware that we're working on it! We hope to have everything back to normal next week. That's the short explanation - for the long one, read on . . .

Community Ch 26: Submitted Series and Specials are now playing out as scheduled without interruption.
Government Ch 27: Programming has been unaffected.
Education Ch 30: Regular programming has been temporarily shifted to UCTV and NASA TV programming.

What the heck is on anyway?

UPDATE 11/2/16 Yes - it's all working now. We have worked the kinks out with the new provider and the Guide does reflect the weekly schedule submissions. There is one exception, our Government channel changes nearly every day with additions so the guide but not be 100% accurate - but our web schedule always is: CH 27: http://cmcm.tv/gov-schedule

If you've been using the Guide on Comcast to find our programming, you've probably found it very confusing in recent weeks. We've been working with Tivo/Rovi on fixing the random errors for a couple months now and were just informed this week that Comcast had actually moved that service to another vendor entirely. Surprise! So, now we're working with the new vendor on the problems (once they return from their vacation that is). Yes, frustrating to be sure, but only a small part of our daily joy.

The best place to see what's actually on has always been our online schedules which are live up to the minute updates of what's being scheduled:
CH 26: http://cmcm.tv/community-schedule
CH 27: http://cmcm.tv/gov-schedule
CH 30: http://cmcm.tv/edu-schedule

CMCM will be CLOSED on Wednesday, July 4th

Our facilities will be closed this Wednesday, July 4th. If you miss us, please drop by our booth in the Exhibit Hall at the Marin County Fair. Happy Independence Day, Marin!
