Welcome to the forum WilliamAtwood, and thank you for the update.

I'm not a member of the staff, but there is a shortage of people to keep the database current.

I think the problem is going to get worse with the many channel assignments being changed as a result of the shrinking UHF TV band.

Your tvfool report should look something like this:

If you click on Pending All channels in your report, CBFT and CBMT will be listed at the top, but the virtual channel numbers will be wrong.



What I have to do, when I'm helping someone with a reception problem, is to check with Wiki and rabbitears.info. For example, with CBFT:

http://www.rabbitears.info/market.ph...&callsign=cbft

The Display Channel is the same as the virtual channel, and the Physical Channel is the same as the real channel.

When I help people on the Canadian forum, most seem to be aware of the problem with the tvfool reports.
