Oceanic’s QAM Channels in Hawaiʻi
Oceanic now appears to be providing these channel mappings themselves. Hooray, straight from the horse’s mouth! As an added bonus, their table includes Kauaʻi, Maui, and the Big Island as well as Oʻahu.
I’m going to stop maintaining the table below. The channel scans themselves were easy but trying to figure out what stations were actually mapped to each received channel was a pain in the ass.
Now if only TiVo would utilize this info to make recording from QAM channels friendlier.

These are channels I have been able to detect/map using the QAM tuners in my TiVo and television for Oceanic Time-Warner in Honolulu. Annoyingly, their channel scans seem to detect different channels for some stations; and the tivo can tune some the tv can’t and vice versa. The TiVo also detects channels that cannot be input directly because it is limited to 3-digit subchannels, though you can still get to them with the channel up/down feature (my tv’s tuner also seems to have this limitation/feature).
Local stations (in bold) appear to be pretty stable, whereas some of the others appear to be pretty ephemeral and float around due to, I am told, switched digital video (SDV).
There may well be other stations lurking out there that these channel scans don’t detect.
Please let me know if you have additions, updates, or corrections!
