That is part of the problem I believe with 8.2.
Since we were on channel 8 digital post transition, then turned channel 35 back on a week later and ran both 8 and 35 digital for 9 months, D* created a special "STA" OTA entry for 35. You have the regular antenna entry for 8, and a STA entry for 35 so depending on where you were located you had access to an OTA signal.
We ceased broadcasting on channel 8 in March of 2010. D* has never removed the STA entry even though they changed the regular OTA entry to channel 35 on their own. They have been told numerous times by me since then and there has been a license issued for channel 35 (which they receive as normal routine of any station) which should have flagged them to remove it as well and update their database. It doesn't appear all the steps have taken place. And that is why you are seeing it and works.
When they added the .2 in March of 2011, I suspect they created it using channel 8, not channel 35 and that is why the 8.2 doesn't work. It is looking at the wrong channel. Trying to get their attention to correct all this has been daunting to say the least but I am still trying.
That is my theory anyway.
