Does anyone know how to display the real(not virtual) channel number of a specific digital channel, on the 3575?
I noticed that occasionally(but cant get it regularly) if, when in the Manual channel preset menu, I will get a display like this:

I have to do a channel scan. I would like to write down all the real channel numbers for my area, so if I lose a virtual channel, I can add it back, without having to do a complete rescan.
