Due to some necessary maintenance, KLRU will be signing off one hour early Sunday (8/30) night at midnight instead of 1 a.m. KLRU will be back on the air at 6 a.m. Monday (8/31).
For the last week KLRU has had many calls and emails from Grande Communications customers about audio problems on their Channel 9. Grande is using a downconverted version of KLRU-HD and the device they are using is switching the primary and secondary audio streams. The result is either no audio or DVI/SAP audio on the main audio channel. Grande technical staff is working on the problem, but KLRU can’t be sure when it will be fixed. If you experience this problem, please contact Grande at http://www.grandecom.com/contact_us/
On behalf of all of us here at KLRU, we want to apologize to viewers for a series of technical errors that occurred on Thursday evening, May 14th. We are still analyzing the issue, but it appears that a malfunction in the automation system led to several programs being cut off prematurely. Unfortunately, among the affected programs was our own production of Ballet Austin’s Hamlet — a production we are very proud of and worked hard to ensure that the quality of the production reflected the high standards of Stephen Mills and Ballet Austin.
We have instituted back up measures that should prevent the problem from affecting programming while
we determine the cause of the problem.
Meanwhile, three more performances of Ballet Austin’s Hamlet have been scheduled:
May 24th at 4:30 pm, following Live from Lincoln Center “NY City Ballet–Romeo & Juliet.”
June 4th, Thursday, at 8 pm
June 10th, Wednesday, at 7 pm
Again, we are very sorry for last night’s technical errors and we hope you tune into the rebroadcast of Hamlet.
