So I autoprogrammed my TV yesterday, and a brand new channel started showing up - channel 76. It's a spectrum analyzer...but why?

See attachment.

Edit: I tried this on several other TVs and the same thing showed up. The cable provider is http://avenuecable.com/ in Indiana.

Must be some sort of test channel for the cable company, I really don't know.

So I guess nobody has a clue about it then? Oh well, it is sort of funny...maybe this is how I can determine the content of my tv shows....the frequency content, anyways!

Call your cable company and ask to speak to someone in the technical department, don't ask to talk to anyone you get on the phone. Either a tech left a test mode on he didn't mean to or, well a tech left a test mode on he didn't mean to =)

I called and apparently that only have one department...there is no technical department...well, according to them. The lady said she would let "dispatch" know...whatever that means. :)

If it's still there in a week, call again, but be sly about it, try to sound officious and ask to speak to the technical director => That might get you somewhere. Even people need to be hacked sometime.
