Ok, just want to make sure you exhausted all the options I can think
of. Your right, its not unlikely that the case is they are using QAM64
and that those are the only channels you will be able to receive. The
other option is they are using a completely different frequency table
for the other channels. Are the ABC/CBS/etc channels you are receiving
in HD or just the digital versions of the SD channel?
