Medfield TV Live Again

Medfield TV is Live Again

This email from Medfield TV about fixing its problem –


Selectmen and Town Administrator,


I am very happy to say that the issues with our Selectmen Meetings has been resolved. We were getting interference sending out our signal back to the station through the Town’s Network. We hooked up a separate router that allowed us to better our flow back to the station to send out our signal.


Thank you for you patience both from the Selectmen and the Town.

Medfield TV live broadcast issues


Selectmen meetings have not been broadcast live

Last night I asked Rachel about the Medield TV broadcast of selectmen meetings not going out live, as I had been told that recently the meetings were not being broadcast live.  I learned that Medfield TV has a new piece of equipment in the Medfield TV equipment box in the selectmen meeting room that has not been functioning properly, preventing the live broadcasts.

For your information, last night’s broadcast would have been 4+ hours, as we finished after 11PM and after the extended inning all star game had ended.

This email came this afternoon from Medfield TV.  I think my “source” must have called Medfield TV too.



First let me apologize that your meeting was not live last night. I watched the intro to the meeting last night and wanted to send a reassuring email your way. It seems people are under the misconception that we “no longer go live”, or “haven’t been live in months”.

We have had some problems with our encoder at the Town Hall. The purpose of that device is to send our video signal back to our station so it can go live to our audience. We received a phone call, and so did you, about your meetings not going live. Only two meetings have missed being live broadcast. The gentleman we spoke to has been frustrated and seems to have embellished to me and I hope not to you as to the extent of the issue.

I believe Medfield TV is a service to the people and to this town. The town meetings are absolutely the single most important part of our job. I want to assure you that this issue is being fixed and is a priority to our station.

I wanted to send this message to let you know what is going on on our end. This has been an issue in some places around us and so we are going through a process of research to find the correct fix to this issue which may take some time. I promise if the meeting is not live it will air within the next day or two.

I do not live in this town but from what I can see you gentlemen do a great job serving this town.

I look forward to working with all of you soon. Perhaps we can do a Selectman show sometime. Any takers?

Farming on Medfield.TV

From Gil Rodgers –


“Let’s Go Farming” Video Available for Viewing on Medfield TV YouTube

Local farm products help safeguard our health and ensure healthier and better tasting food. Knowing where our food comes from and how it is grown enables us to choose fresh nutritious and safe food.


A new video series at Medfield TV “Let’s Go Farming” explores and demonstrates the benefits of local agriculture to the community, schools, restaurants, environment, parents, and kids. Based on experiences in running successful Community Supported Agricultural (CSAs) farms for many years, Medfield resident Gil Rodgers discusses with Laura Tangerini (Tangerini Farm, Millis, MA) and Andrew Rodgers, (Clark Farm, Carlisle, MA) how local farms provide organic and nutritious food, demonstrate the heritage of local agriculture, contribute to food and educational programs with schools, and offer consequential work opportunities for residents and students.

Medfield.TV moving downtown

The sign in the window at the former Strata Bank building announces that site as the new future home of Medfield.TV.  There is a lot of build out to accomplish, so the move in date will not be for months.  Medfield.TV is currently located in a too small studio space that is part of the Medfield High School building.  They are physically across the small parking lot from the cafeteria door, or, from inside the building, just down the hall from Room 125.
