KMMC, channel 40, on Mt. San Bruno is back on the air, but it's not transmitting any PSIP information. Tuners that require PSIP will not tune in this station.

I checked all five of the TVs in the house and only the new Vizio will decode channel 50.6. And it is 50.6, not 54.6, that they're using.

I noticed tonight that channels 12-1, 12-2, 12-3 and 12-4 have disappeared from the HD Home Run scans. Chuck, are you seeing the same on KFTY, the One Ministry station that you get?
