ABILENE, Texas -

A problem with the KTXS transmitter is preventing over-the-air viewers, and DirecTV from watching ABC programming, and other broadcasts. Dish Network and cable viewers have not been affected.

KTXS is currently broadcasting on a backup generator at low power. The problem is with a metering circuit that is interrupting power to the generator. The replacement circuit is expected to arrive and be installed tomorrow, solving the problem.

Most cable providers receive KTXS' signal directly, bypassing the transmitter.

KTXS staff and management regrets that viewers were unable to watch their favorite shows on Monday. We apologize for the inconvenience.
