When scanning for ota ch's, you won't find anything above "real" ch.50. Depending on where you are located, some of the "real" ch's may be in the vhf[2 thru13], while others may be in the existing uhf[14 thru50] freq. Some times the real and the digital will match and other times you may have a digital ch. of asy; 59.1 that is really on real ch 11. There is also the problem of cross ch.recption. I can recieve ch's from San Frisco, Sacramento, and Fresno. An example is ch. 7 in San Francisco and ch.7 in Fresno. They will cause problems. Jess out in California

The Zinwell should have a guide[sent by OTA station]. I don't think any of the TV's offer a "guide", only an Info button. I have been looking at the new Linkbox 9000i local with iptv. The guide for OTA ch's is working on this model! I might get one of these. Sat , iptv , and OTA all in one. It will be a good replacement for my Pansat 9500. Jess out in California

Well; We still have the freq. from 30 to 50. A lot of the ch's around here still use those freq's. Only time will tell if they will be bought back and sold by the FCC to companies that want to use those freq's to stream their content to the countless devices out there. Jess out in California.
