    I have recently noticed that the local channels on my SD receiver had vanished from the guide. I have an SD Tivo unit with a 5-LNB dish. Is there something I can change in the settings to get these back or is the only option to upgrade to a new HD receiver?

    Also, where are you located? If your local stations are beamed from the 119ºW satellite, be sure that your Tivo is configured for the "Phase III 3-LNB Dish" under the satellite setup.
