I receive local channels out of Houston. About 2 months ago I noticed that NBC, ABC, FOX, and CBS are on on multiple channel. For example our local NBC, KPRC channel 2, is now available on 2,6,and 56. Does anyone know why this is.

that's a weird issue, do you have the Local Channel Connector and it hooked up to a antenna.

There's another thread here about the Minneapolis market:


In another market, the channel IDs are being mapped in from other markets but the channel is actually the "local" network station.

In the specific case of Houston, the double mappings appear in the DIRECTV Transponder Map:
KPRC​
2​
Houston, TX KPRC NBC 2 A3 HD​
KTRK
7
Houston, TX KTRK ABC 7 A3 HD Virtual​
KUHT​
8​
Houston, TX KUHT PBS 8 A3 HD​
KHOU​
11​
Houston, TX KHOU CBS 11 A3 HD​
KTRK​
13​
Houston, TX KTRK ABC 13 A3 HD​
KYTX
19
Houston, TX KYTX CBS 19 A3 HD Virtual​
KTXH​
20​
Houston, TX KTXH MNT 20 A3 HD​
KRIV​
26​
Houston, TX KRIV FOX 26 A3 HD​
KIAH​
39​
Houston, TX KIAH CW 39 A3 HD​
KXLN​

Houston, TX KXLN UNI 45 A3 HD​
KTMD​

KYAZ​

KRIV

Houston, TX KRIV FOX 51 A3 HD Virtual​
KTBU​
55​
Houston, TX KTBU IND 55 A3 HD​
KPRC
56
Houston, TX KPRC NBC 56 A3 HD Virtual​
KUBE​
57​
Houston, TX KUBE IND 57 A3 HD​
KZJL​
61​
Houston, TX KZJL IND 61 A3 HD​
KFTH​
67​
Houston, TX KFTH UMas 67 A3 HD​

The italicized entires suffixed with "Virtual" are where DIRECTV is mapping the station to the wrong channel number.

The OTA channels seem to be unharmed so far.

I presented a different third column here (NOTES_1 as opposed to NOTES_0) as DIRECTV is omitting the DT-TV suffix from the virtual callsigns.
