Thank you cpalmer2K. I have the Silver package and never watch the SD channels. I couldn't find any channels missing when I removed the tuning adaptor.In all ares I've seen they do, and in most areas SDV seems to have increased since the merger. In my area it is mostly HD sports channels in the Gold package and foreign channels or SD channels
Thank you. I will try that.Try tuning to the ones you'd never tune to. In my area, SDV includes BET and, believe it or not, The Weather Channel. Tech tells me "everyone gets weather from their phones, now." I can't remember the rest of the list. I think one of them was The Big Ten Network. Unwatched except when Michigan or Michigan State played a football game or weekend basketball game. B1G also had a habit of changing frequencies in the middle of a game. That helped uncover a big ingress problem in my neighborhood.
