I lost 7.1 and 7.2 but gained a 7.6, got 7.1 and .2 back, now have a non existent 7.4. I have a hunch they are working on it.

It's off a hair on my Seiki, too.

49.4 and 49.5 have been unwatchably bad for a couple of weeks now, even though their signal quality is good and the other four 49.Xs are stable.
