> There is no such thing as a virtual channel.

Minor correction: here in the U.S. we tend to use the old analog channel 
number for station identification.  For instance, KWQC-TV was on analog 
(NTSC format) Channel 6.  With the digital conversion (ATSC) the station 
is transmitting on RF Channel 17 but is still known as "Channel 6" and 
is branded and advertised as "TV 6".  The television itself remaps the 
station: I push the 6.1 buttons on the remote to view what is really at 

So the virtual channel is 6.1 but one is really watching the primary on 
channel 17.
