I own a Zenith DTV1080 STB and I have noticed that the new WB digital signal (UHF 25) is getting mapped to channel 22-1 and 25-3 on my channel guide. I receive a signal and watch the content on 25-3 but the channel guide has no programming information. All of the programming info is showing up on channel 22-1 in the channel guide but there is nothing to view on this channel. Anyone else in the Seattle area seeing this ???

I've tried 22-1 recently and didn't get any picture either. However, 22-1 did work when they first went on the air. Seeing how they don't have any content, I haven't really paid much attention.

I remember when they first went on the air I was able to receive the signal on 22-1. Now I get it on 25-3. I agree with your content comment. I have yet to watch one show on WB-DT because of the content. I was just "technically" curious.

I haven't received 22-1 well enough to lock up for several days. That's not unusual for me, though. I'm in Anacortes. Art

You can watch Blind Date, but its not HD. Its 14X9 480p. Not HD. Oh yea, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer is on that channel too. Wow.

I'm in Lake City with SIR-T150 and Winegard MetroStar 2000. 22-1 comes in great most of the time. If I dial up 25 it just goes to 22-1 due to mapping. The T150 never shows 25-3. T150 is not big on channel info. Shows SD or HD and that's about it. But pulls in channels pretty good with antenna indoors.

I've run out of witty sayings...

I get 22-1 perfect here in Bothell. Did anyone else notice that for some reason Fox showed up on that channel from about 8-9 PM last night? That 80's show and the show after it were upconverted but showed the FOX logo in the lower right hand corner in the black bar space. When I saw it I thought I was losing my mind....I cant get FOX ever and for a minute I thought I might be able to watch Star Wars tonight but alas it went back to WB programming at 9....

Did not notice the FOX on 22-1 but what the **** is going on tonight with 22/25? My t150 is showing 25-1 and 25-2 which it never did before. But when I tune it in my receiver goes nuts. It wants to lock in on 25-1 or 25-2 and won't go to other channels. I have to run the "memorize channels" routine and leave out 25 just so I can tune other channels. Whatever they are doing it is messing up my receiver.

The exact same thing is happening to me as well. SIR-T150 goes nuts. I, too, cleared all the channels in memory, then scanned in all but WB.

RCA doesn't scan it. The UM does. 25-2 and 25-3.

Is there a standard for these "-" numbers. Is 25-2 on all receivers the same channel or arbitrary as asigned by the mfg? I have never seen 25-3 or any -3 yet in Seattle.

I still can't figure it out.

Before:
18-1 remapped to 13-1 (KCPQ-Fox).

KTWB (WB) goes on the air and 25-2 is remapped to 22-1 and displayed the call sign as "KTWB-SD".

Yesterday:
KCPQ is on 25-3 and remapped to 13-1. New channel 16-1 (KONG) is too weak for me to bring in.

Today:
Now, both 25-3 and 25-2 are off the air (or the signal is too weak).


Seems like there is a lot of channel jumping (or transmitter swapping) going around among stations with same owners (or transmitters or antennas) to meet the deadline.



25-2
