    Since Wausau WI has 7.4 WSAW in the database and it carries START as an affiliate on that channel, by running Wausau WI (54401) as a secondary zip it will put 7.4 WSAW with the START guide for you on that channel. Then you can run Lincoln NE (68501) to get KMNE 7.5 in your system. It will have the wrong guide, but it will put 7.5 in your DVR so you can watch the channel. By running these two secondary zips you can get 7.4 START and 7.5 H&I (wrong guide) into your DVR.

    Praise be to whoever in the engineering department decided to allow the HR44/54 to naively scan for channels. My NBC and CW stations moved to their new frequencies on New Year's Day and since they are owned by Gray that meant new sub-channels. The finding zip codes for the HR24 gets on my nerves sometimes lol.

    The new sub-channels that are not in the database:
    WSAZ 3.3 Circle
    WSAZ 3.4 DABL (Coming soon, test card up)

    And the existing sub-channels not in database:
    WQCW 30.2 H&I
    WQCW 30.3 Start TV

    So I found that WCAX (Gray owned) from South Burlington, VT they previously had ION on 3.3 but with the launch of Circle they moved their existing ION sub-channel to 3.5 and put Circle on 3.3 (YAY!) So on my HR24 I was able to run zip 05401 to add WCAXDT3 3.3 to my guide to get the correct listings for Circle. Then I ran trusty zip 38103 from Memphis, TN to add WLMTDT2 30.2 (wrong guide data) and WLMTDT3 30.3 (Start TV guide data). Then I ran zip 55901 to add KIMTDT4 3.4 (wrong guide data).

    Circle launched yesterday. My Gray owned station (WNDU) also added it.
    Currently playing Hee Haw.

    For those who live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    The first re-pack channel changes have occurred. A few days ago, three stations added their new channels: 27-KPJK, 31-KTVU, and 32-KCNS sharing with KTNC and KEMO. At 10 am this morning these stations turned off their old transmitters on channels 39-KCNS, 43-KPJK and 44-KTVU. You'll have to scan your TV, if you haven't already, to receive the new channels.

    On March 13 KKPX 41 will be moving to channel 33 and about 30 stations in phase 9 will be changing by the end of April.

    See my website, https://larrykenney.com/sfonair3..html for complete information on the repack changes.
