Does anyone have any knowledge of what Comcast (Margate) is doing with the channel layouts (virtual and physical)?
I have a DVR with a QAM tuner that used to get all local channels in SD and the major networks in HD.
Around January all the HDs disappeared except for the ones in Spanish and WGN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CW, FOX aren't there.
I assumed that was Comcast scrambling them, but a few months back I got a new HDTV with a QAM tuner, and all the channels are there.
I've discussed this on a thread for the DVR and several tricks were suggested, but none have worked.
According to SiliconDust:
18-438 440 is PBS 2
50-443 85.433 is CBS 4
52-435 110.435 is CW 39
113-434 113.434 is FOX 7
My new HDTV shows:
85-433 WFOR 4 HD (CBS)
85-440 WPBT 2 HD (PBS)
86-431 WPLG 10 HD (ABC)
86-432 WTVJ 6 HD (NBC)
110-435 WSFL 39 HD (The CW)
113-434 WSVN 7 HD (Fox)
Prior to losing the channels in January my DVR saw:
50.4 as CBS 4
50.5 as PBS 2
51.4 as ABC 10
51.5 as NBC 6
52.3 as CW 39
87.2 as FOX 7
Now my old numbers are of course old and I suppose SiliconDust could have old data as well.
So does anyone know if my information is old? Does anyone have updated channels?
Is Comcast doing something ridiculous that can cause older tuners to have problems?
