I no longer have them, but vthey were part of my "test" in Spring of 2008 I believe both the Magnavox & Philco mapped 55 to 30 (it's native physical channel). That was my thought on actual station improvements, but the LG at the same time was mapping the box to 55, so another encoder miscommunicstion.

Yeah, I used to take a Walkman on flights without issue, gave me a idea where about I was flying over, though you could pick up stations 3-400 miles apart simultaniously... a fun activity to pass the time on a flight, see how may stations could be logged in. Back in the day when I used to fly & take vacachies.

I just did a rescan on my Magnavox converter box and WBNX still maps to 55, so maybe it was a configuration error that was messing up the "Fungi" boxes. That was apparently fixed a long time ago as I have never had problems with 55 since acquiring the Magnavox box 4-5 years ago. The only time I get RF mapped channels is on my Zenith DTT-900 with WEAO & WCDN when the signal is just below the decoding threshold. Once the signal is strong enough to get the PSIP data, the RF channel is replaced with the virtual channel.

WBNX definitely did do something with their encoder. As I stated before, my RCA L37WD12 no longer has audio decoding issues with WBNX since the aspect ratio on 55.3 was corrected. Now if only WEWS (.1 .2 .3) and WJW (.2) could do the same.

Newer is not always better.

That would be the Black box with the Yellow Standby/Green On LED? I get plenty of the unmapped channels too on low signal level, 17 & 19 .. speaking of which is still off the air for me.

Yes. Model number TB100MW9

The TB110MW9, I believe, is a revised model that doesn't have the yellow standby light or the line ON/OFF switch. I think it also has the analog pass-through feature.

I must of had the TB100MW9, no on off switch?

That explains why that Air1 signal get beat-up in Parma. So you get that Canadian 92.7 every day?!?
