Can I inqure as to how you now which data resides on which physical channel?
This only works if you're using a cablecard. Not sure how to get the info if you have a STB.
SIMPLE, BUT TIME CONSUMING WAY
Get your channel lineup on paper (I captured mine from Comcast website
and pasted to excel, then sorted by cable channel#).
Tune to each channel with the remote channel up-down, starting with channel 1. Skip over the analog (480i) channels as you're not concerned with those. For some reason, I can tune to channels I'm not subscribed to and get the channel frequency, but of course the Conditional Access shows NOT_SUBSCRIBED and there is no video/audio.
While on each channel, press MENU-2-4-7-0, arrow up-down to hilite Digital Signal Strength and press Enter. Write down the Frequency under Tuner, i.e. 609.0 next to the channel on your lineup paper. Press EXIT on the remote and tune to the next channel. Repeat for all channels.
Now sort your new lineup list by Frequency to find those channels that have the same frequency. Those with the same frequency are on the same channel.
I have tried doing this by going to the channel editor (MENU, CHANNEL), but that is not reliable since it doesn't display the frequency.
ANYONE KNOW AN EASIER WAY?
