Adjacent channels that are of similar strength (at the receiving location) are not an issue with ATSC. However, when one is considerably stronger than the other, reception may fail. IIRC, the number was around 35 dB differential back when the standard was set up.

FWIW, it's far more likely that the described mechanism and conclusion in the first post is incorrect. It's far more likely that the amplified signals from the CN tower were strong enough to "desensitize" the tuner to the far weaker Buffalo signals.
