While VOOM provides region mapping for my market, there are additional off-air stations in adjacent markets that I would also like to receive.

Does anyone know how to add additional local channels and/or how to enter a zip code so I can change to another market.

I can't answer your question but I have another related question:

Our local CBS has PSIP issues and the channel assignment is constantly changing between the PSIP generated channel of 6-01 and the raw OTA channel assignment of 40-01. How does the VOOM box handle this? Will it still see the channel and tune it in? My 6000 remaps it automatically.

Thanks.
