A little more info to add to Jim's.
He is correct about 35. Been on at night this week though on expanded schedule. Great clips from 1080 productions from around the country. Have never heard Dolby 5.1 from them though.
Chan 39 is ABC-DC, WJLA - NO HDTV and horrible up-conversion - unwatchable. Lost cause... Try 52.2 in Baltimore (analog channel 2, WMAR) for the ABC HDTV shows AND Dolby 5.1 sound. Most of the DC area HDTV'ers have abandoned WJLA for WMAR.
CBS, WUSA-DT, on 34, has great 1080i, but no 5.1.
Now NBC, WRC-DT, on 48.48 has Leno and Crossing Jordan in HDTV and pix is very nice - again no 5.1.
PBS, WETA-DT, 27.1, has great pix - not duplicating the national feed though. No 5.1, that I have heard.
BTW, your STB should convert these channel numbers, except 39 (!) to the local channel numbers.
Hope this helps and welcome to HDTV.
Have a Great HDTV Day,
