    I did a quick search for locals available in the Harrisburg area. I noticed this:
    WGAL 8
    WLYH 15
    WHP 21
    WHTM 27
    WPMT 43
    WGCB 49
    TFT 431

    Why would they include this channel?

    I think its a spanish station. No freakin' idea why we would get this channel in PA. It must be an error.

    I am still awaiting D* to carry WLYH-DT and WITF-DT (33.1 and/or 33.3). Nothing has been announced about these two/three channels for the Harrisburg/Lancaster market.

    D* made the agreement with PBS, but there hasn't been any news on that since the announcement of the agreement. As for WLYH, who knows why they don't have that.

    Yes. PBS 33 is WITF, in glorious low-definition. The other channels (NBC 8, CBS 21, ABC 27, and Fox 43) are in HD.

    D* provides us with just the WITF analog (33) feed. No 33.3 (PBS HD) and no 33.1 (WITF digital feed of analog channel programming).

    Looks like some areas are getting their My Network and CW affiliates from D* in HD, but not in our area yet.

    Since MNTV is on the .2, will D* ever give us another feed for MNTV? All in the same, what's the deal with WGCB 49? Saw they were being dropped because of lack of paperwork? Seems odd.

    WGCB was dropped Jan 1 on D*. WITF has dropped their 33.3 (PBS HD) signal. Still no WITF-DT in D*.
