I'm also in the Boston area.  I can't record from WFXT at all either.
Looks to me like they are not currently sending any PSIP data at all.
Neither hdtvrecorder nor dvbrecorder will be able to function until the
station fixes this and starts sending at least TVCT (virtual channel
table) information as required by the FCC.
