    Just downloaded and set up locals and in my case the OTA tuner is much worse than the HR-250. Fortunately I get the locals via satellite, but I also have a set of $10 rabbit ears hooked directly into my Samsung and I get all of the locals pretty well except CBS, but with the antenna on my roof hooked into the HR-20 the only channel I can get is NBC. Either the Samsung built in tuner is really really good, or there's something wrong with my rooftop antenna. (it is the cheap winegard, but I'm less than 10 miles from every tower, though I have a lot of tall trees around me).

    You may be overloading the tuners in the HR20, you may be splitting too many times (if you are splitting). If you have a distribution amp or antenna preamp, bypass them. Run the cable coming from the TV antenna DIRECTLY into the HR20. If that doesn't work, try attenuating the signal some, or boosting it some...it's hard to tell what you need at this point. What kind of signal reading are you getting on your Sammy? It should show "x" vertical bars out of 10....how many are you getting on your problem stations? You could also try taking the cable off the Sammy and putting it on the HR20 ...lots of things to try.

    Forced the download here in Albuquerque and OTA HD channels are nice and strong. I'm VERY happy. I did remember to re-key the zip code, seem to remember that was important to make sure the right channels were downloaded :)

    This may be a stupid question but isn't the zipcode only for the guide? It has nothing to do with what the OTA antenna receives?
    BTW :How does one find the secondary ZipCode?

    If you give it the zipcode from where your freeview channels come from, the guide will also have info for them. Secondary Zipcode should be a zipcode from any other city (in a different direction usually) where you also get freeview channels. I have no local stations. Mine mainly come from a city area 40-60 miles east. I sometimes get channels from a city 40 miles southwest from me. I put in that city's zipcode as my secondary zipcode, and the guide lists them (so long as my antenna find them).

    Earl are there any tweeks in the national version over the rc?

    Any reason for those of us who were visited by Santa to pull down the national version?

    No. In fact, my machine rebooted last night and I assume it was to download the national release...but when I look in my Info I see that the date of the upgrade has remained last Friday when I forced 0x10b.

    I was up at 3:30 AM when my DVR reset itself while I was watching... I have no idea why it did that.

    At 4:30 AM, the notice came up that the softwaer was ready to download.

    By 5:30 I was up and running with the update. The only strange thing is that my channel 3 and all its subchannels (Cleveland) will not even register in the signal meter... All other channels work fine.

    Any suggestions?
