Does anyone know the scoop on channels 2,4, and 5 being broadcast in digital or HD?
Check Larry's list, see his post one back at the bottom.
KPIX Virtual Channel 5, RF 29, the perhaps only remaining station with no second stream,
KTVU Virtual Channel 2, RF 44 and RF 48,
KRON Virtual Channel 4, RF 38,
are all UHF RF channels.
KGO Virtual Channel 7, RF 7 is VHF and RF 35 is UHF.
There are no Analog stations nearby except for RF 6 which is a FM radio station.
Enter your zip code into this page:
and click "Show lines pointing to each transmitter" and then zoom out.
Sutro / Bruno and Mt. Allison / Monument Pk are about 180 degrees so you might get all with an antenna that has a low front to back ratio.
Picking up on Larry's comment about the antenna, I suggest also:
- Disconnect the antenna (And any other cables to the HDTV).
- Do a full channel scan, this should result in NO channels.
- Reconnect the antenna and again do a full channel scan.
The last full scan might have some old data that is messing the channel tables.
For a HDHomeRUN, a BAT file will collect all the stations quickly.
"C:\\Program Files\\Silicondust\\HDHomeRun\\hdhomerun_config.exe" 1013024C scan /tuner1 G:\\1013024C.txt
The tuner ID, number and the file name will have to be changed, PM for more info.
