I think we've touched on this subject before, but a RTV can be made to work any D2A converter, but you'll need a custom blaster file, and some luck....
We know the RTV does not accept dashes. But, if you can determine that one digit between zero and nine is NOT used in your market, you can map the hash (-) to that digit, make a custom blaster file that sends (-) instead of the digit, and use WiRNS to re-map channels to four digits, you are good to go.
For example, in the New York Market, digits 6 and 8 are not used (primarily). Therefore, all the sub-channels on 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 21, 31, 41, 47, 55 can be mapped by substituting a 6 or an 8 for the -.
Channel 2-1 becomes 281.
Channel 4-4 becomes 484.
Channel 11-3 becomes 1183.
Not trivial, but not difficult. You need some luck in your market and hope you have an unused digit....
