PSIP 1, eh? That’s about as bad as having a station on PSIP 73 (and I believe that there is at least one LPTV station on that PSIP). I don’t know if any of the HD flatscreen TVs can pick up either PSIP 1 or 73 on their tuners. I think they just go from PSIP 2 to PSIP 69. Same for the digital to analog converter boxes. I think that KAXT-CD should convert their PSIP to 42 (if available), so that the Bay Area viewers can watch that station.
