By the time a station gets past .2, they've ruined their main channel as well by bitstarving it to provide more crap subchannels...you guys really need to wake up and smell the coffee. While its nice to have more and more channels, doing it by further subdividing their main HD channel isn't a good thing...PQ starts to take a big hit.

Some of the independent channels in the LA area have 8 or 9 subchannels. And PQ indeed takes a big hit. Most of these are foreign language stations which I don't watch anyway.

KCBS has no subchannels and seems to have the best picture in town.

If you happen to be using custom/favorite channel listings, also remember that you have to go in to that menu and check any new subchannel(s) to add them into your listing, so that they will then appear in your on-screen channel guide.
