Accessing grid channels through Digital Adapter

Plugging the cable directly into the tv gives me several grid channels and the radio stations. I lose these when I plug the cable back into the Digital Adapter box.

 

How do I get access these grid channels without having to go through the constant hassle of unhooking-hooking-unhooking cable wires OR buying a device that can switch back and forth?

 

This has become pressing now that Rogers has inexplicably removed CTV Newsnet from the Digital Adapter lineup. (See my other post here on that issue: http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/TV/Rogers-has-removed-stations-from-Digital-Adapter-lineup/td-p... )

Re: Accessing grid channels through Digital Adapter

@dta:  As discussed in several DTA threads, people are limited to a select few stations (basic) when they change packages, or sometimes when Rogers decides to do so for certain customers.

 

The only way to get these channels back is to purchase or rent a proper set top box instead of the DTA.  If you contact the community helps people on this forum, you may be able to negotiate one for free (or at a very small cost), depending on your package etc.  Here's a link on how to contact Community Helps:

Thank you for responding, but that doesn't address the problem with constantly unhooking-hooking-unhooking the cables to get the grid stations.

@dta: I'm pretty sure that the "grid stations" would be available via the set top box...
