Fox 7KTBC seems to be having problems. Windows media center won't tune it in and my other TV's show it as broadcasting the main channel on 7-3. I suppose that's why WMC is having issues.

I think KCWX is a figment of the imagination. Has anyone been able to pick up that channel using OTA? Anywhere? KBVO, meanwhile, should totally be obtainable if you're using a roof-mounted antenna....
