For what it's worth, more than a year ago one local PBS affiliate near
me (central NJ) was sending a bad signal...in this case, with help
from some folks on the dev list, I was able to determine that they
were sending an incorrect PID.  MythTV wouldn't lock onto the station
at all.  I emailed them about it and it got fixed within a little more
than a day.  I was never able to figure out if my email had anything
to do with it however.
