I hope that I just got someone who didn't know what they were doing
either, but what are you supposed to do when a representative of the
FCC tells you one thing and everyone else says something else? I mean,
I can't go back to that same person and be like, you're wrong and I
want to file a complaint.

In the mean time I'm able to get about 10 channels in HD OTA, but I'd
really like to get them over the cable so that I don't have to deal
with the hassles of small jumps in my recordings because a channels
dipps out a little. I also can't get the Harrisburg CBS OTA station
which happens to carry Steelers games. I can get the channel in SD on
cable, but obviously can't get it in HD since my provider is
encrypting things.
