First the good news. As the weather gets warmer, reception of WGRZ gets better. Last night around 11pm, the signal was solid. This morning its weak, but its raining and cloudy so that may have something to do with it.

Regarding GLOBAL 65.1 remapping, I have a Sharp Aquos and its doing something quite interesting. When I input 65.1, it remaps to 2.1 and I get GLOBAL. When I input 33.1 it also remaps to 2.1 but I get WGRZ. And, it allows me to use the jump button to flip to both channels. On screen, it appears to jump from 2.1 GLOBAL to 2.1 WGRZ although, I suspect, on some underlying layer in the TV its flipping between 65.1 and 33.1.

WNED remapping to 17.1 worked fine on my TV.

As always, I'm located in the High Park area of Toronto with a south facing view, clear line of sight to the CN Tower. Winegard SquareShooter antenna used inside.
