Digital TV Conversion

Thu Jun 11 22:30:30 EDT 2009

Are you saying that Channel 7 will not relocate its DTV signal from
Channel 43 (I think that's the temporary assignment) to Channel 7 for
a month after tomorrow? That would seem to be what would have to
happen for nightlight to appear on Channel 7 for a month. If so,
rescanning won't accomplish anything with Channel 7 for another whole
month. I don't watch 7 much, but if what I think you've suggested is
correct, I'm bummed. I wanted to find out whether the 7 signal was
going to be OK or troublesome. I've been waiting more than a year
since I got the DTV converter (for my analog TV) and just a year since
I got my DTV receiver (replaced my other analog set). Are you going to
tell me that since waiting a year hasn't hurt me, waiting another
month clearly won't either?
