Digital TV reception problem

Quoth Maureen Carney,
I now have another strange issue - the box picks up WHDH on both 7 and 42 
and shows it twice (using virtual mapping to 7.1 & 7.2 for channel 42). So 
if I am sequentially going through the channels it will go 6.1, 7.1, 7.2, 
7.1, 7.2, 10.1 and on. Anyone else picking up both?<<

It's not your equipment.  WHDH-DT is currently simulcasting on channels 7 
and 42.  After filing an urgent application last Monday to revert 
temporarily to 42 (in addition to operating on 7), they received permission 
on Tuesday to do so, and switched 42 back on again.  You are evidently not 
among the viewers unable to receive 7 despite rescanning.  The station 
reportedly had *lots* of calls over the weekend, prompting the FCC
