I've tried for WYBN from a hilltop near Berne. Not a whiff. The only place I've been able to receive it is the parking lot of the Valero station in Windham. Even then I had to aim my Silver Sensor...

Are you sure it's wrong? If the female PATA connector is the size that fits a 5.25" PATA drive then it will also fit the male connector on the motherboard. Both PATA and SATA cables are normally...

If TWC doesn't transmit virtual channel numbers I don't think you can. Even if they do you'd have to punch 2 or 3 digits and a decimal, the same as you would for OTA channels. If the TV lets you...

6-1, 6-2 and 6-3 are all part of one transmission so you should get all of them equally well. However, on most TVs you'll need to rescan to pick up any changes.

Someone suggested you may need a...

I'm confused. Both wkomorow and Davird_Jr have talked about WCWN on RF 19 from Jiminy Peak. But RabbitEars and the WRGB and WCWN wiki entries say RF 19 is a repeater for WRGB, and WCWN is only on RF...

Of course those are the real (not virtual) channel and subchannels. It appears that they aren't broadcasting the virtual channel info or other data such as the program guide.
