Channels I Don't Get From The List Above:

416: TV Colombia (721)

EDIT: I voted for 293, but apparently I was wrong. It no longer shows up as a CIG. The above two channels have been double-checked, and are still incorrect.

Somehow, in moving back and forth between the poll and the text entry box, my poll got submitted before it was complete.

On CIG but not received: 215* 379 408 416
* only one submitted to poll

Correctly not on CIG and not received: 293

All others on poll correctly on CIG and received.

Premier w/ HD, No HD Extra Pak

Normally 293 is a 721 but w/ the freeview this week it is showing.

379, 408, 416 are in my guide but not being received.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown
