I seriously doubt that channel 5 oon your cable system is where the digital channel was located. Channels in that range are used almost exclusively for the analog channels. Many cable systems still allow a TV without a cable box to get the 2>13 channels.
Since I do not have cable, I have no idea how digital channels are mapped, compared to OTA DTV channels, i.e. where you tune, for example, channel 11 DTV and it says that it is channel 47-1, instead of 11-1. Most STBs don't let you display the real channel numbers, only the virtual channel. MyHD, on the other hand, allows either or. I have no idea what it doesn't with cable systems.
The tuner section in the 130 is pretty damn good. When I had it scanning both analog and digital OTA channels in my area, it even locked on two LPTV channels that were very snowy. Having it miss a cable channel just seems too far fetched.
But, a thought came to mind. Who owns the Fox affiliate in your market. If it is Sinclair, that will be why it is missing. Sinclair is requesting money from all cable companies that want to carry the DTV signal. Most cable companies, rightfully so, are saying FU. That is a problem in my local market. All of the local HD channels are on the cable system, except for Fox, because Sinclair owns the local Fox affiliate. So, your Fox affiliate may have gotten pulled when an agreement couldn't be reached.
