This blog will feature highlights of programming by Falls Cable Access, a not-for-profit organization located in Menomonee Falls High School.
A series of small events on our video server a few weeks ago, hardly seemed like they were major issues. By Thursday May 26th it brought both Channel 13 & 14 to their knees. Most of Friday Saturday and part of Sunday were spent finding ways to outsmart the system and get back on the air while waiting for the manufacturer to check their voice mail. Even the remote assistance from the technician went on for 6 hours before we had a healthy system again.
We must admit the system has worked flawlessly 24/7 for several years with only a few firmware upgrades. Why it chose this weekend with a contentious school board meeting and the Memorial Day Parade scheduled, they can't say. It will take a few days to replace the entire schedule on both channels as a failing drive with about a hundred shows is now in jeopardy. While we do that we will run Little League Weekend starting Friday and ending Sunday night.
We appreciate your patience during our outage, and will be televising boys baseball and summer concerts in the coming weeks.
