They are still broadcasting on LOW VHF 3. Which sucks. Your TV tuner will see the station as 33.1 which is in the UHF range. Just like PBS NJ is broadcasting middle VHF 8.1 but virtual 58.1 in...

Interesting comments seeing as I have 2 DVR+ attached to a router and neither did automatic updates. I initiated the updates when I knew they were available. Maybe I was so proactive the DVR+ never...
