It is pretty crazy that I am pulling Dayton, OH from Florence......since I am an alumni of UD, I wanted to try to get University of Dayton Basketball on channel 7 this winter.
I don't think the issue would have to do with the signal being 1080i. If you are using an integrated tuner (one that is internal to the tv), it should automatically convert 1080i signals to 720p if the display is 720p native, and vise-versa for a 1080i native. Now if you are using an external tuner, such as one built in a satellite box, then it is important to know what resolution your tv can display and to make sure the box is set to output that resolution. As far as 1080i native displays, this mainly consists of the older CRT Rear Projection and direct view sets. All panel displays (LCD, DLP, Plasma and LCOS) are either 720p or 1080p native.
Quick run down on resolutions for Cincinnati stations:
(Station, virtual channel, actual channel, resolution)
WLWT-DT 5.1 (35) - 1080i
WLWT-DT 5.2 (35) - 480i
WCPO-DT 9.1 (10) - 720p
WCPO-WX 9.2 (10) - 480i (not exactly, but close)
WKRC-DT 12.1 (31) - 1080i
WKRC-DT 12.2 (31) - 480i
WPTO-DT 14.6 (28) - 1080i
WPTO-DT 14.2-.5 (28) - 480i
WXIX-DT 19.1 (29) - 720p
WXIX-DT 19.2 (29) - 480i
WCET-DT 48.1 (34) - 1080i
WCET-DT 48.2 (34) - 480i
WCVN-DT 54.4 (24) - 720p
WCVN-DT 54.1-.6 (24) - 480i
WSTR-DT 64.1 (33) - 720p (Used to be 1080i when it was still WB)
So I would check WCET 48.1 and see if you can decode that station. If you can't, you need to look into your setup and make sure that a certain setting is not activated or deactivated that could effect how a 1080i channel is converted.
