Channel Conflict

Hey guys. Here's my radar map:

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e2cb2017802846

I have a 2-bay antenna. One pointing at 245 magnetic and the other at 168 magnetic to get the most channels. However, I also really wanted to get one of the CBC transmissions but it looks like this one has an adjacent channel or a conflicting channel warning. Is the only way around this to redirect the antenna which is picking up the channel causing a conflict with CBC?

Thanks

CBC programming comes off the CN tower locally on CBLT, UHF channel 20. The database error has not been corrected. If you click on the "Pending" button, it will show up in your plot.

There's no need to chase the distant channel 12 signal which is unlikely to be picked up by your UHF antenna anyway.

CBLT CBC on real channel 20 is listed as having virtual channel 20.1, which is also wrong. It will show as virtual channel 5.1 on your TV.

CHEX analog is no longer on the air, and CHEX-DT no longer carries CBC; it is now CTV:

CHEX began airing CTV programming on August 31, 2015 under a programming supply agreement, terminating its relationship with the CBC after 60 years.

Thanks rabbit73. I entered 20 on the remote and it went to channel 5 automatically. Thanks
