KPTV seems to have decided to carry the East Coast Cozi feed. I like it.

Right now KPDX is carrying two subchannels, RetroTV and KWVT. PSIP makes it hard to know what stations are carrying what channels these days.

NOW: my post on AVS Forum.

KWVT and Retro TV are carried on KWVT [Real Frequency 49, using virtual channels 17.1, 17.2, 27.1, 37.1], not KPDX [Real Frequency 30, virtual channel 49.1. Escape TV will presumably by virtual 49.2].

KWVT is too unreliable for me to pay attention, but I recall the mess its numbering system made of converter box mapping. It didn't help any that Retro TV virtual 27.1 was already assigned to real frequency 27 (KSLM) when KWVT tried to assign it to real frequency 49.

Oh, there's a station broadcasting a virtual channel that's the same as another channel's real frequency. No wonder I'm confused!

Did KPDX not move back to 49 after the analog shutdown?

No, KPDX moved from channel 48 to channel 30, which was KPTV's digital before the transition. KPTV itself moved back to 12.
