I can corroborate this. Aside from "channel 45" really being channel 43 (as that is KATU's digital channel), this virtually mirrors what I observed around 7pm this evening.
When I first powered on my 6000 in the living room, I saw channel 43 listed specifically in the guide. When I attempted to tune to it, the entire UI was frozen for a few seconds, to the point where nothing on screen was updating, and nothing I pressed on the remote caused anything to change. However, once the signal arrived, it remapped itself to channel 30, but I still had no picture.
I didn't try much to get the picture, instead focusing my efforts on properly mapping channel 43. I kept trying to remove/add the channels - first KPTV, then KATU, but KATU kept mapping itself to 30. I finally just gave up and left KATU off the guide.
Now, I'm at the 6000 in the bedroom. Channel 2 was still listed when browsing, but when tuning to itâ€¦ once again, at first the UI froze, but after a few seconds, the picture came in this time; however, the channel was instead listed as its default channel 43. I then tuned to a satellite channel to get my program guide to update, then tried to go back to 43... now it's gone. Instead, once again, channel 30 is listed as "CH-1." *shrug*
What possible excuse could they have for this?!
