Prior to analog death, WSVN broadcast on RF 8, which is why when their PSIP went out back then WSVN-DT displayed 8-1 (or 8-3 on newer Samsung TVs). There was no PSIP info to tell your set you were watching "Channel 7". Now, after the analog death, WSVN's RF is the same as their branded channel, so the main channel number is still 7.

Aforesaid are just a few examples documenting an ongoing pattern for years with WSVN on this forum and others. Additionally:
On or about 8:00 PM Feb 27, 2009 WSVN also ran a "false" alert of a Hurricane with over 100 mph winds and a storm surge of 6-8 feet. I have the documentation to prove it. There was no such hurricane and it was NOT Hurricane season. http://www.avsforum.com/t/43823/miami-ft-lauderdale-fl-hdtv/6240#post_16242029
The actual weather on aforesaid date was Max Temperature 79 °F Precipitation 0.00 in. http://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/KMIA/2009/2/27/DailyHistory.html?req_city=Miami&req_state=FL&req_statename=Florida
Here is an excerpt from member rodmanbra documented Post #3 http://www.avsforum.com/t/41338/no-sound-from-wsvn-dt-miami-on-zenith
"I certainly hope you do not call WSVN since...here is the possible future phone call...."
d "Hi, can you please trasfer me to engineering"
WSVN chief engineer "If you plan on complaining..., take a number!"
d "why so rude. Btw, i am a fellow broadcaster friend"
WSVN chief engineer "We never tested with... We use ... for quality control. Why not just use this?"
WSVN chief engineer "I have a perfect solution for you. Use...Thanks for calling. We are "just one station".
WSVN's ignorance is inexcusable, and irresponsible. Well, WSVN we are not talking about supposition as evidenced by the numerous complaints. WSVN can't solve problems if they don't acknowledge their existence. Lesson 2: Today they completely failed to address the problem on their end. Instead of addressing viewers concern WSVN point their finger at the viewing public using ota....I'm surprised they don't have a banner titled Mission Accomplished displayed at their station.
The evidence speaks for itself. WSVN has failed to address not only the problems with their signal but more importantly how certain members of the public are treated. The evidence doesn't lie. It is blatantly evident what WSVN thinks of The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations and certain members of the public.
