BTW, http://www.silicondust.com/hdhomerun/channels_us for 95124
doesn't map with what I've found. For instance, right now I'm watching
89-2, which is KGO (ABC), but the silicon dust listing says it should
be KRON. KRON for me is 89-4, but silicon dust says that should be
ABC7 (which is KGO)

what gives?
