Well this is very odd. Here where I live, on digital basic cable, that's without the Cox cable box, our PBS affiliate (LPB) and NBC affiliate were 27.5 and 33.1 on my TV. I just updated the firmware on my 5020, did the channel scan again, and now they are both in the 700's! What's up with that?? I don't even see how that's possible since the TV has the typical HDTV tuner that only goes up to...what is it....125 or 175 channels?! (I don't see it listed anywhere in the manual but I'm sure it's less than 200, correct?) I'm wondering if the stations changed channel #'s and when I did the scan I got the updated #'s and it deleted the old channel #'s, or if the firmware update was solely responsible for this. This is a PITA, just when I was getting used to the *logical #'s, now they make no sense at all. (*I say "logical" #'s because all of the other channels, and the two in question, were only decimal points away from their basic cable assigned #'s. Ch. 27 analog cable was 27.5 digital, the NBC affiliate was ch. 33 OTA, and the other local channels on DTV were the same as their OTA counterparts + a decimal place. So with all of them there was some since of "logic" in their numerical assignments. But seeing these two in the 700's makes absolutely no sense).
