Is there any place I could get the fill digital channel list in my local area(Los Angeles)?


Because I have spent so many time and sp tried so many spaces and still cannot find Zenith DTT 901, I bought the channel master CM-7000 yesterday.


Now I found I cannot get 2 channel that I used to watch a lot - "Food network" and "TBS" in the channel list that I just searched(have tried several times). I am kind wondering if these 2 channels cast in digital signal so far ??


It's really frustrated for me and I also just found channel master CM-7000 doesn't have Analog Passthrough function....

Converter boxes, like the Zenith & Channel Master are for OTA channels received with an antenna. Ask in this topic for local OTA stations in your area: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...php?p=17050909


Food & TBS are not OTA, and are only available from a hardwire (cable, fiber, IPTV) or DBS provider.

Um Food Network and TBS are CABLE channels of course you're not going to find them OTA.

Antenna to Splitter, split to CM and TV, then CM composite or S-video+audio to TV.


If not enough power for the split, a VCR can work as your pass-through: Antenna to VCR then VCR RF out to CM. VCR composite to TV. CM RF out (or S-video+audio) to TV. The VCR becomes your analog tuner.


Consider: Best picture in this order:


1) S-video

2) Composite (RCA connectors; typically a red, white, and yellow set)

3) RF (coax)

"Food network" and "TBS" are not currently broadcast OTA, so a CECB will not receive them. If you have cable TV service, then do not use the CECB.

"not currently"? I'm not aware of any plans for them to EVER be broadcast OTA.
