    You might have to scan... Even with air TV, some channels are putting out digital over air (i.e. channel 2 and 2.1 and many more like that).

    When the stations were running analog and digital the digital channels were at a temporary spot on the band -- now that they shutoff the analog transmitters a few stations moved the actual radio frequency they were transmitting on. It will still show up on your TV "2-1, 2-2, 8-1, etc" but they exist elsewhere on the band.

    So like was mentioned above, have your tuner do a re-scan and it will pickup the stations again.

    They will also come in stronger -- now that it is only digital they raised the transmit output power.

    Okay, I turned on the TV and did a "EZ-ADD" and my channel line up looked like:
    2-1
    2-2
    6-1
    8-1
    8-1
    8-2
    8-2
    10-1
    10-1
    10-2
    10-2
    10-3
    10-3
    10-4
    10-4
    ...
    etc

    Notice the repeating stations? So my tuner still kept the KGW and OPB that didn't work AND the new ones... just wondering if maybe you have duplicates are landing the ones that don't work... maybe...

    We got digital 8 and OPB fine before the switch. Now 8 is nearly impossible and OPB is pixelated about 25% of the time. This after re-scanning twice.

    In Forest Grove.

    i would do it at least once per month anyway.

    i noticed as soon as they switched over, the signals all came in even better. even fox 49 was working, whereas it hasnt since last year.

    however, i still notice the signals will degrade during windy times.
