The channel ID's that get picked up are not the same as the ones that I can get OTA and I cannot get CityTV nor French CBC OTA as I'm nowhere close to a station that would broadcast those OTA and as I noted they are different than the ones I can get as I cannot play them I just see placeholders.

SiliconDust are genius by including these Canadian channels in their IPTV offering to adhere to CRTC requirements for Canadian content and being the first legit IPTV/OTT service to come to Canada by doing so.
Not seeing this on my 2 HdHomeRun's, what are the channel #'s?
I had a family member check and they don't see these either.

Those are OTA channels, not Premium channels.

That you are correct, I can't see them in the 1xxx channel lineup either.

I think what has happened here is your tuner has performed a auto scan on one of those nights, that you can get channels from over 150 km's away, I have 4 channels that I can receive quite frequently late at night, especially in the summer, that are 187 km's away.

I think you've just (re-)discovered tropospheric ducting:

This is indeed what appears to have happened. I triggered a rescan now and the channels I had presently were no longer present. Sorry for the confusion everyone!
