KPRC QAM HD?

I have been able to find all the local channels in HD until last week.

I have expanded basic so I have a splitter and a switch set up where I can scan the cable for the free HDs.

I can still get CBS, ABC, FOX and a few others but no more KPRC.

I have done two or three scans and to no avail.

Anybody else with my level of subcription having this problem.

I am in the Brazosport area on Comcast.

And yes all 5 flat panels have QAM capabilities.

Checking on my TVs and found the one in my pc room still picks up NBC HD on it at 612.1 along with the other local stations.

How can that be possible when the other four do not receive NBC HD?

Possibly low signal strength for that channel and that TV has a more sensitive tuner?

It is the newest of my bunch.

Age probably isn't the reason -- some tuners are just designed with more sensitivity.

Edit -- or perhaps the coax run to that tv has less loss.

Why not just pick it up OTA? You should have a pretty clear shot to the Missouri City antenna farm.

With all the switches and splitters I have now that would be one more thing to deal with.

I guess I need to chunk the 5 VCRs and get a couple of DVRs then I can watch HD anytime.

Almost went in to panic mode. Here it is three days until the Super Bowl and I lost CBS HD. Did a re-scan and found it on 34-611.

I wish they would quite shuffling them around. Never did pick up NBC except on my newest TV.
