    Hi guys:
    I was just wondering if anyone lost their off-air tuner ( H20-600 )
    after the new software up-grade?

    I've lost the ability to watch any off-air channel and furthermore,
    when I run the system test it only counts for one tuner.

    Any input would be much appreciated.......///////////

    I would try running the OTA setup again and if that does not help reboot the receiver.

    Interesting.
    I noticed (last night) that my OTA channel is gone, too.
    I was only able to pick up 1 OTA channel anyway -- PBS WFIQ 36.1, 36.2, 36.3, and 36.4.

    Was there a software update on the H20-100 in the last few days?
    I'll try to search for the OTA channels again this afternoon.

    After powering down both my H20s, I regained the second tuner and some of the
    off-air channels. A quick channel scan and all is good.

    Thanks 4 all inputs.

    My channel scan turned up 78 percent signal strength, found the PBS channel and sub channels. However, when I try to view the channel, nothing. I get the little thing at the bottom right of the screen about trying to access the Off-air signal. (Forgot to check the actual error code).

    My H20-100 is running firmware v.2020 as of July 18, 2007.

    I don't know if this could be a contributing factor to your problem or not, but the most recent NR version of the firmware for the H20-100 is v.2021.
