I guess it's different in Milton than in Oakville....
It's just frustrating to scan through all the digital channels and not knowing what channel you are viewing...
Anyone have a complete channel list for straight COAX into the TV tuner for Oakville? Thanks in advance.
I agree - it can be a pain since you don't have the option to label the DTV channels like you can for analog channels (at least not on the Samsung). That's why I decided to keep this as an Excel file in case I have to reprogram.
Also, I don't know about your Sharp, but the Samsung when you perform auto-scan it picks up about 500 channels, most of them are blank (probably the DCR tuner picks up the subcarrier signal, but the channel is encrypted) so you have to filter the channel list manually after the auto-scan and remove the blanks from memory, which can be a daunting task
All in all it's not too bad, and while the SD channels are not as good as HD, some of them are significantly better than analog, probably due to different Mpeg-2 compression ratios. I'm definitely happy with the DCR/QAM option, which is rather rare from what I saw.
Rogers is coming to Milton, probably Oakville too, so it's a good thing, Cogeco's monopol is almost over
Good luck with the channel list.
