    I haven't used the Tivo link(I'm not activated yet,anyway.Is it even worth it for just 3 HD channels?),but,I did use the 2nd link and send a note to Zap2it today about adding 27.1 C-III,Global ,Peterborough.

    Pretty much all the TV Channels in Ontario have gone digital(except CH. 6 CJOH-6,CTV,Deseronto and CH. 2 Global,Bancroft ) since I first posted in this thread,including all but one I mentioned above.

    I receive:

    *12.1 CHEX-DT - CBC
    *27.1 C-III-HD - Global
    *27.2 C-III-SD "
    *35.1 CFT0-54 - CTV

    -using a Channel Master CM-2016HD upstairs feeding 2 TVs.
    (Ok,so I know an outside antenna would do better,but,I haven't got a round to that.)
    [I bought an Antennas Direct DB4E some months back,but,haven't done anything with it yet.LOL]

    Zap2it has added 12.1 CHEX-DT and 35.1 CFTO-54 since my first post here,which both show up on the Tivo.Now,if they'd just add 27.1 CIII-HD,Global.

    I phoned in and got my Tivo set up,did a manual update,so now we're up and running.

    Looks great.

    I contacted Zap2it Media about adding Ch. 27.1 CIII -Global ,Peterborough(the xmttr is actually just n. of Cobourg.Go figure.),or rather,changing their entry for CH.27 to say 27.1.I also contacted Tivo.

    I also made Zap2it Media aware that:

    a) 15 CBLFT,18 CICA and 44 CBLFT were shutdown by CBC and TVO back on July 31,2012
    b)they have listed 30.1 CKWS and 66 CKWS,which was shutdown after the digital flashcut.
    c) 53 CICA is still listed,but,it should be 26.1 TVO,Belleville,ON...
    d)They have several CBC tramsitters listed that were probably shutdown last year!

    They need to get their act together.

    btw: if I put up another antenna to get me Rochester,NY(TV Fool says 83.5 miles ),could I combine it with the local antenna,or would an A/B switch be the best way to go?

    Toronto ON...
    Glad to have another Ontarian on TiVo! There's strength in numbers. :cool:

    I need updates again as well now for CHCH changing physical channels on Dec. 2 and WNED shifting their subchannels around.

    There's more of us than you imagine, we're just "lurkers", check out http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=95819.

    I agree the TiVo guide needs to fix the WNED rearrangement. I'd like to eliminate 17.3 but I need it to see what's on 17.2 and yes it's about time that CHCH got their act together on 15 since announcing it in early 2012.
