    I can't receive channel 54-1 through my HR20. I get the message that no signal is acquired. When I pull up the signal meter it says that it can't acquire a signal. The channel comes in fine with the Tivo tuner. I know of at least one other person in the market that is having the same problem. All other OTA channels are coming in fine. Any ideas?

    I am in the Huntsville DMA also and have an HR-20, 54-1 works fine for me. just for kicks go into the OTA setup and enter 37334 as your zip and see if that gets you 54-1. Just as an aside I have never been able to get 25-3 either, but not a big deal. When you say you don't get 54-1, do you get 54-2? Could it be just a reception problem? What is your signal strength on your TIVO? What was your initial install date? I'm wondering if D* could have dropped it out of their database in an update?

    PM me if you have any further problems.

    I am the other person with this problem. It's not that we don't get 54-1 in our channel lineup, it's that the signal for 54-2 (or 54-2) is not enough for the HR20 to display the channel.

    Funny thing is that my HR10-250 and my Mits TV with digital tuner both pick up the channel.

    I can't get 54-2 either. My initial install date was about a month ago. There is no signal strength. The signal meter says that it can't acquire a signal. I have a friend that lives on the opposite side of Huntsville and he is having the same problem. He can pick up 54-1 and 54-2 fine with his TV's tuner and his Tivo tuner.
