I live in glendale and we have minimal service from Charter. We dropped to basic service which cuts off the channels at about 33, but then they pick up again at 78, just in time for the HD channels. I got a Fusion HDTV 5 Lite card to see what I could get. After having much difficulty with this card and its lousy software (Access Violations and stupid error messages galore) I seem to have it working pretty well now. I managed to find these channels:
102-1 / 102.2 : FOX HD
102-2 / 102.3 : NBC weather plus (480i)
102-3 / 102.4 : NBC HD
104-2 : KTLA (WB) HD
104-3 : ABC HD
105.? : CBS HD
105.? : KCET HD
Also, a few other 480i channels in the 80 and 90 range.
I have a ? with the 105 channels because they seem to behave strangely. In fact, it wasn't until just last night that the card was able to tune CBS HD. I suspect this is because the 105 channels have been added very recently (based on your other posts in this thread about Charter not carrying CBS HD until just recently) Also, the FusionHDTV program is reporting two different values at different places on the controller pane for the 102 series of channels. The 104s do this too I think, but they stopped working this afternoon. They seem to have a very intermittent signal right now (0%, but briefly spiking to 60% or so). Anyone else having this problem tonight?
In addition to these channels, the card seems to be able to tune several other channels (as many as 20 or more), but they all have no video or sound, despite the fact that it has a good strong signal (above 80%). I realize that I cannot receive the encrypted channels with this card, but is that what these are, or are they just unused channels? Thanks
