Had the same issue on my Sony TV (I used the option to search for additional channels, as opposed to a complete rescan).

WCAX and its sub-channels appeared on channels 20.1 through 20.4! I had to...

That's a bit discouraging, though hopefully I'll still be able to pick them in my part of the island (I've had good success with some of the fringe channels, like WVNY-22).

Just a had look, Global's 15.2 sub-channel is indeed gone.

Not a loss as it was just an SD duplicate of the main 15.1 HD channel. Even on my spare CRT TV (4:3/SD) I had set it to ignore 15.2, as...

That's quite a distance from Montreal, but at the same time, strange because you would think being further north-east would result in a weaker signal.
