That is data for WTVJ. Note how the 6-1 stream is listed as Program 3. Without PSIP, many receivers will show 31-3 for this reason.

The number is arbitrary, though there are reasons for variations. Many stations use Program 3 as their first due to a specific FCC regulation regarding the PIDs (sort of like data addresses) for the various parts of the stream, though there are ways to meet this rule while using Program 1.

I realize that was probably overly confusing. If you really want a good explanation, let me know and I'll try again.

Prior to analog death, WSVN broadcast on RF 8, which is why when their PSIP went out back then WSVN-DT displayed 8-1 (or 8-3 on newer Samsung TVs). There was no PSIP info to tell your set you were watching "Channel 7". Now, after the analog death, WSVN's RF is the same as their branded channel, so the main channel number is still 7.

No clue why Samsung TVs show the true RF primary as "-3" rather than "-1" when the PSIP goes out. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable about those things has an explanation.

I was changing channels and when I reached channel 7.1 wsvn the 7.1 info display changed and the channel number switched to 7.3 all by itself the same when I changed the channel instead of 7.2 next the display now shows 7.4
Im also not getting any program info other than dtv air

On numerous occasions wsvn has had similar issues the difference being the channel was 8.3 and 8.4 not what Im getting now which is 7.3 and 7.4

This appears to be an ongoing problem with wsvn.

Aforesaid documents ongoing issues with WSVN

Well, WSVN we are not talking about supposition. WSVN can't solve problems if they don't acknowledge their existence. Lesson 2: Today they completely failed to address the problem on their end. Instead of addressing viewers concern WSVN point their finger at the viewing public using ota....
