    And more importantly, where? I haven't seen one around.

    Apparently Channel 49 KPDX is going to change from "MyTV" to "Fox 12 +" on Feb. 12. I think all it is is a name change since MyTV didn't really have any shows of its own, did it? A question: Do they still have "The Edge" in the Oregonian life section? Or am I old for remembering it?

    They're following the lead of Fox TV Stations-- they've recently rebranded some of their MyTV stations as "Fox (number) Plus/Xtra/More", including Washington DC, Minneapolis and San Francisco/Oakland (though the station there, KICU, was actually an indie; KRON, the former NBC station, is MyNet there).

    They're calling Channel 49 "12 Plus" now? Makes no sense, numerically. Sad to see it completely lose its identity, but the sad truth is, it hasn't had one in a while.

    I haven't looked at an Oregonian in months; I have no idea if The Edge is still there.

    There's a new subchannel on 8 called "Quest." WHEN are we getting Heroes & Icons? We seem to be getting everything BUT that channel.

    Was looking through a tape from 1992-3 and found a couple of interesting things. Like a Rubenstein's ad, a Thriftway ad, and a news segment of KGW at 11pm.

    I'm going to tape the first episode of "Tonight", the show @ 7pm on KGW.

    I guess not. My DVD player has decided that I can't record network shows any more. Cable shows are fine, though. Why?

    Yes, it replaced Live at 7. It's still local, but just a new show.
