Sorry for digging this up but I got sidetracked and never did get back to my original question, LOL!
Anyways, for those who missed it in the summer, I was asking what the channels were when I plugged cable wire directly into my TV, with NO cable box involved. This was before I got a HD cable box (as TWC was out of them at the time.)
For the heck of it, I was bored on this Christmas morning and decided to go back and redo my HDTV's auto-search for channels and see what came up in my area (Time Warner-Zanesville). Most were the same from what I saw before, and from what was listed above in the post I quoted, but here goes...
74.44 -- A community announcements bulletin board channel for West Lafayette (located 10 minutes east of Coshocton).
79.12 -- Channel telling you to buy NBA TV.
84.1 -- WBNS HD
84.2 -- WOSU HD
84.3 -- WOSU Ohio
84.5 -- WOSU Plus
85.7 -- Columbus Sports TV
90.1 -- WCMH HD
90.2 -- WCMH Weather Plus
90.3 -- WWHO HD
108.23 -- Music channel: Kids Only!
108.24 -- Music channel: Reggae
108.29 -- Music channel: Rap
108.35 -- Music channel: Lite Hits
110.1 -- WSYX HD
110.2 -- MyTV Columbus
110.3 -- WTTE HD
112.2 -- Universal HD
113.19 -- In Demand Promos (Mostly sports and X-rated shows)
114.12 -- ESPN2 HD
The major changes from before involved the Music Channels, because TWC recently tweaked those. But, I also saw that ESPN2 HD was there. ESPN HD isn't there, but ESPN2 HD is.
Also, I used to have Cartoon Network repeated on one of the digital channels, but it is no longer there (which isn't a big deal since it was a waste to see a regular channel on the digital channels.)
Finally, for the heck of it, I decided to turn off the cable input into my TV and use Antenna mode, with the cable still plugged in and see what came up. What happened is Channels 2-13 were normal. But Channels 14-22 were replaced by Channels 65-72 in that order. Channels 23 and beyond were static.
That's about all the damage I can do on that tonight. Hope someone finds it interesting.
