And, remember that because of the "optional" analog shut off (occuring 
now--not /just/ on the 17th) and the associated channel number/frequency 
shuffle, things might /really/ just be changing.

When in doubt, rescan your video sources, again...  (And/or check your 
local stations' websites to see when they're shutting off analog and/or 
what changes will occur with their digital channels and, if they're 
really good, when.)
