All installed! (Good thing I have my First Class ticket with Radar Endorsement) I got the Zenith DTT901.
Looks like I'm going to need a better antenna. After some twiddling with the rotor, I managed to get 8, 10, 13, and 21. 31 was a no-show. We were watching 21 and there were many drop-outs. I could see with the signal strength meter there were several others that were there but too weak to receive. Taking the amplifier out of the line made it worse. Is there a listing somewhere of how many DTV signals each station is putting out? IIRC, 21 had 4 channels I could receive, 13 had 3, 10 had 2 and 8 had 1. Are they doing more that I can't get yet?
Nope - what you see is what you get. All the subchannels travel as part of the same fat datastream as the "main" channel, so if you can see one, you can see them all. The only exceptions are a handful of "hidden" channels - for instance, at WXXI, we use a portion of our DTV datastream to backhaul audio to WJSL down in Houghton and to the WRUR studio. Certain Sony tuners can see that "hidden" subchannel as 16.7.
As for Canada, they're doing the same thing the US is - there are allocations for separate DTV channels for each analog station, though they've only built them out in the big cities. Nearly all the Toronto/Hamilton stations are on the air, though their signals are fairly directional and you have to be close to the lake or up high to get them. CBC is on 20, Radio-Canada is on 24, CTV on 40 - those seem to be the signals most often seen stateside.
