Is anyone else experiencing this with 8.1-3?
WISH on RF channel 9 comes up as virtual channels 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3. Likewise, WISH on RF channel 17 (translator station) also comes up as virtual channels 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3. Most DTV tuners stack them up as two sets of each, 8.1 (RF ch. 9), 8.1 (RF ch. 17), etc. So as you channel up through your scanned stations, the first 8.1 should be from RF ch. 9 and the second 8.1 from RF ch. 17 (if it's received).
Depending on your location, which is not mentioned in your post, and depending on your antenna, WISH on RF ch. 17 might provide you a stronger signal than RF ch. 9. Are you using an indoor or outdoor antenna? This could make a difference as to which signal you receive better/stronger.
I haven't noticed any reception issues with WISH, but I'm only 5.5 miles distant from the WISH tower.
Yes, I too am enjoying MeTV on WTHR 13.3, along with AntennaTV on WXIN 59.2. It's nice to have some variety in OTA programming besides all the Judge _____________ shows, marathon newscasts, etc. It's too bad that This TV on WTTV 4.2 and WTTK 29.2 is preempted during the morning hours by Fox 59 News.
