I live in eastern Maricopa County between Mesa and Apache Junction, and have a clear shot at Tucson TV with a ChannelMaster 2018 antenna (high VHF and UHF) above my roof. RF Channel 9 comes in well, both on my Digital Stream converter box and a 22-inch HDTV. From this setup I get some 64 channels when I scan, both from South Mountain off the side and from the Tucson mountains. I get channels from Tucson that I've never seen before half as clearly as I get them on digital TV.
I have a Vizio 22-inch HDTV that sadly has no program guide capabilities, and I have a Digital Stream converter box with some amazing capabilities, plus an outstanding program guide.
I bought the TV and scanned for channels, and I see that KGUN 9 has replaced its Spanish channel called "Mexi" with Antenna TV, called "Classics, on 9.2.
Hey great, I'll fire up the converter box and see what time the Meat Head comes on in All In The Family, and when Captain Binghamton can be seen on McHale's Navy!
Everything was working just fine, except the converter box was listing the channel under its old name, "Mexi." It was listing the programs on 9.2 and 9.3 just fine.
Until I decided to rescan the box and see if I can update the name.
After repeated rescans, rescans with the antenna off and rescan again with it on, every Phoenix and Tucson channel I had any interest in was working just fine, except channel 9.
Reception was good, on 9.1 "ABC", 9.4 " ", and 9.5 " ", with no 9.2 or 9.3. 9.4 and 9.5 are carrying the programming of 9.2 and 9.3, respectively, no title and no guide.
I rescanned the TV, and it carries channel 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 as ABC, Classics and LWN.
Can anyone put a signal tracer on Channel 9's computer streams and tell me what they are doing that has cost me the use of my program guide on 9.4 and 9.5, and there is no 9.2 or 9.3??
Must be something they set when they switched networks on 9.2?
