    After reading a post here about digital KICU 36 in the Bay Area, I checked the Titan TV listing for all the Bay Area Digital TV Stations, and I didn't even see KICU listed. They list:
    ABC24KGO-DTNow Available
    CBS 29KPIX-DTNow Available
    FOX 56KTVU-DTNow Available
    IND12KNTV-DTNow Available
    NBC57KRON-DTNow Available
    PBS 30KQED-DTNow Available
    UPN 45KBHK-DTNow Available
    WB 19KBWB-DTNow Available
    Just curious, are there any other digital stations besides KICU 36 that are available in the Bay Area, and NOT listed above? (Don't get me wrong, that's a nice list, just want to know if others are available)

    MikeM - I get KICU 36 analog, 36-1 KICU-DT, 36-2 KICUCDI or something like this (I will correct this when I get home if I am mistaken, and 52-2 also has KICU digital. So I am wondering if your list is really really correct and if 24 KGO-DT is actually more like 24-1 or so. The same goes for the others. I am getting 36-1, 36-2, and 52-2 at a signal strength of 95% - almost 99% since I raised my RS double-bow tie antenna at about 7 feet from the floor. I checked digital channel 29 but since it only shows about 24% strength or lower, I cannot pull it 29 or maybe 29-1 at all. I just get a black screen. UPN if it is on 45, I just get about %6 nothing higher. Nothing else for any of the other stations.
    I also wonder why I am getting a strong signal for KICU, but almost nothing for the others. Aren't all these signals coming from the same place? Shouldn't I get one and then all the others? Can someone explain why this work this way? Thanks.
    Sincerely,
    orestes.

    BTW, I just went to PBS Digital, and KQED - San Francisco, CA is listed as being digital too. However, it is not listed above either.
    Take a peek at http://www.pbs.org./digitaltv/ to find out more.
    Sincerely,
