Windows 7: Terresterial HD Channels

Terresterial HD Channels

I haven't had much experience with this yet, because I recently discontinued cable TV service in favor of local terresterial signals. However, a problem arose just today, where that one station, which is actually on a shared signal transmitted by one local station, went off the air during a movie that I was watching. The movie is not the problem, but since it has been off air most of today, I'm wondering if this is typical for HD stations? The station in question broadcasts 3 separate channels, and one is still working.

The second part of my question is that I noticed that the station listing created during the last scan has dual listings of the same channel, but on two different RF signals (51 & 45). I never saw this with previous scans, and I'm wondering if this is correct or something that went wrong with the scan?

This wouldn't surprise me, except that this particular channel has been among the strongest, always showing 100% signal strength. I have gotten a usable signal with the antenna placed to where the signal was less than 100%. Did your experience include dual channel listings as I described?

No, what I mean is that a single channel, like 6.3 listed both 45 & 51 in two separate listings of 6.3.

EDIT: I fired Fusion up so I could get a screenshot. Maybe it will make it clearer:

EDIT: When I select one of these channels to play, it automatically selects both of them at the same time.

Not Getting All Channels on WMC
Hi - Upfront, I'm a newbie to WMC TV. So that said.... I set it up this afternoon and scanned for analog and digital QAM stations. It only brought in channels 1-100, plus some "subchannels" which I don't understand: e.g., 15, 15.3 & 15.4; 11 channel 16s, some of which look the same. We...

RAM channels
What exactly is "triple channel" RAM? Is it just RAM that comes in a set of 3 or is the RAM different to dual channel? The reason I'm asking is that I was wondering if I could buy 3 sticks of "dual channel" RAM, and put them together, to make it triple channel on a new computer.

Ati dct + hd homerun qam channels
Hi all, I have an ATI DCT and I'm using it just for NTSC AND QAM (no cable card) and HD Homerun. My problem is when I add qam channels (settings->tv->guide), my media center will just add two qam channels instead of 3, I think it is just adding those channels on the hd homerun tuners and not...
