Actually, as of last night by about 11:05pm, 7.1 (really 7.3?)
was running an audio announcement with slide saying they were 
switching to Ch.42 and that you need to rescan, but 7.2 was
still running This-TV with no advisory.
They were still that way at 6:30am this morning, then, when I
just checked at about 9:53am, they suddenly went to a blank
screen (both 7.1 and 7.2): The interesting thing is, the
Insignia box shows full signal strength, but yet the
"No Signal" icon is bouncing around the screen with no PSIP
station data!(?)
Would they pull the plug this soon or are they just trying
to tie in 7.2 to the advisory?
Anyone know the exact time (and date, if not today) they are
shutting it down?
