    Actually there is (see tonyd79's post #17 for instance);

    It's channel 1002, but I don't have a WT for KCBS channel 2 in the guide to link to it for some reason.

    A bug perhaps?

    Yes I know, but my point is there is still a WT in the guide for them as well as KCET-28 (Ind.).

    It's an obvious error, due to a bug perhaps?

    Yes, again I realize this;

    However the triangles are still erroneously there on those local channels nevertheless.

    Bet your 24 didn't have them a version or so earlier though.

    Don't know, but if you say so. I haven't watch (in front of) any of my 24's in at least a year.

    No, it is NOT a glitch. It is poorly written software combined with poor pre-release testing and / or poor release management.

    I just noticed maybe a new feature, maybe not, while checking out the white triangles.

    While in the guide, with the preview window of the current channel in the upper left, I moved the highlighted channel area to a different channel in the far left channel column, selected and it changed the channel in the preview window without taking you out of the guide. Maybe that was there before and I didn't know.
