    I know this has already been discussed, but I can't find a post that relates to my issue. I have a HR20-100 and get all my local channels via off-air antenna, as Direct Tv does not carry my locals in HD. Our local Fox affiliate has finally added digital. For the past couple of years I have had to use the tuner in my TV to watch this one station and wasn't able to use my dvr to record anything. I now would like to be able to watch this station using my HR20, but the new station does not show up in the guide. I have re-setup the off air antenna, but it won't add the new channel. What do I do?? Thanks,

    Rick

    Contact both DirecTV and that local station. They'll have to get this new station added to the Guide Data stream.

    Don't waste your time contacting DirecTV! You need to contact the station and Tribune Media (who provides DirecTV with the listings).
    If this is a new station, it can take a couple of weeks for the data to make it's way through the system.

    OK, I'll contact the local station. How do I contact Tribune Media? The new digital sub stations show up on antennaweb, so does that mean that Tribune already has them? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for all the answers. ;o)
