KOAA HD update

I'm finally getting a signal on 42 (KOAA's HD location), although I haven't been able to get the TV to lock yet (signal strength is stuck at, appropriately, 42-percent). I may have to break down and get a DB4 to hang on the chimney. I was hoping to avoid that -- everything else comes in pretty well on a set-top antenna (unless it's snowing).

Any news from Comcast on adding it to the lineup? That article in the Gazette about upselling more services to users isn't coming to fruition now.

Figure they'd want to keep their high-end consumers happy and paying that monthly exorbinate fee. :)

If you get something fancy like a DB4, make sure it is returnable. Based on what I have been reading on AVSforum it seems to give marginal results. I am getting 94% signal on KOAA in the BF with an old yagi style antenna.

Yeah, KOAA-HD has definitely been the hardest channel to get for lots of us...

What is taking Adelphia/Comcast so long to get KOAA in HD? 705 doesn't even show up on my cable HD box. Anyone have an update?

Um, the big problem I had about getting KOAA's digital signal was not the weak signal, after all. It was because its Web site reported "channel 5-1, RF channel 42."

The signal is being broadcast on 42.1, not 42. And what's with "5-1"? Don't they mean 5.1?
