ATSC Channel Wierdness

I just updated to the V7 beta and am really impressed with the new user interaction... so much so that I'm finally trying to solve a problem I've had for awhile (since some of the ATSC channels moved around).

The problem at a high level is channels 7 (WSVN) and 10 (WPLG) do not show up. As they are VHF channels, I just assumed it was an antenna issue but I have been recently been working with another ATSC system and it receives the channels just fine.

I am using a SiliconDust HDHR to receive ATSC, along with an HDHR for cable channels. So I started up TSReader to see what it could find and lo and behold the signals were strong and relatively error free. But Sage still couldn't pull them in.

In digging through the PSIP, I noticed something strange on the two channels - they were showing up with Channels 3 and 4 in the TVCT/PAT/PMT. Cut/Past from TS Read below.

I tried using Sage to remap the channels to 7-3 and 7-4 but that also didn't work. Interestingly the TVCT shows Channel 3 to be 7.1. So it is possible the PSIP parsing code is getting confused as a result of what looks like a strange configuration (btw, I wrote DVB-SI and ATSC-PSIP parsers about 10 years ago... and am have a strong background in DTV.)

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.
