    I have HD's from NY from when they were on blanket waiver here in Chicago. What can cause me to lose them? are they a different kind of waiver than the regular DNS waivers?

    Thats why I wanted to start a new thread, to see if the 'blanket waiver' has different rules than the regular white area waiver, or a station waiver.

    Waivers are a privilege and stations who grant them have the right to rescind them whenever they want for any reason at all. It could even be a new station manager who does not want viewers watching out of market TV and they are gone just like that.
    Up here in International Falls, MN. we may never see OTA HDTV (translators are not covered under the mandatory 2/17/2009 mandate) and yet 3 of the 4 networks refuse to grant waivers of any kind

    My Daughter just activated an HR20 and she cannot get channels 80 or 82 or 88. I still have an older HD receiver and can get them. I was assuming that since the new receiver can get local HD channels, they are not being allowed to get the national ones. She does not yet have a new dish to receive the other satellites, so the local HDs are not available to her yet.

    If it's on the same account, it should be getting them. Try "refreshing" the service and see if they then come in.
