Is there such a thing: PSIP Stripper/Remover
I basically want to remove/edit the PSIP from the stream before it reaches my TV, so stations come in on their RF station instead of their virtual channel (I am sure some TVs/converter boxes/software programs maybe have this option). So instead of typing in 7 and having it redirecting to 2 (in the case of WJBK), if I type in 7 it just stays on 7, leaving channel 2 open on my TV.
I got this idea from a damaged piece of a coax cable that I had running to my Samsung LN-T3242H that I have recently replaced. When I had that piece of coax attached to the splitter, WMYD which broadcasts on RF 21 and PSIP remaps to 20 would come in only on channel 21. I would also lose the guide information but the call letters would always come in.
Why would I want to do this? For scanning in more channels of course. Unless I do a full scan, I can't do a quick scan to see if there is a channel coming on on channel 2 or channel 20...
