    Med28, you need to change your sig, as you now have local HD with D*.

    Did they uplink NET1 or NETHD?

    Here is some info I posted in another thread:

    H21-200 - channels 29 & 51 work fine. Channel 5,8,10,17 have a message that says multi switch problem, tried hard & soft reboot, still not working. Has a B-Band Super 2400 for Ka-lo band up converter bbc.

    Multiswitch is a Zinwell wideband 6x8 multi room sw WB68

    That local channels I'm getting now without the 72.5 dish because I don't have one.

    On my HR20-100 (they all work fine) are 5,8,10,17,29,51. I'm not at home right now so I'm not sure which ones are actually in HD, but I assume all of them are because what Mertzen said in one of the previous posts in the other locals thread.

    Also my D11 receivers don't show any of the local channels (according to other info I received here on the board they won't yet)

    Broken...
    According to the local channel lookup for Lincoln-Hastings, NE, DirecTV is only providing KLKN 8 and KOLN 10 in HD. Since the SD versions of the channels are also being delivered by one of the Ka/Ku satellites, could someone confirm which of the channels are in HD and which are only in SD.

    I checked out the channels briefly this morning before heading to work. The first thing I observed in the guide of my HR21 was the absence of KHGI (13). I have a R10 that is hooked up to a 72.5 dish and 13 was still there.

    Did anyone else notice this or do I need to do a reset on my HR21?

    KHGI has only one listing, presumably the standard def from 72.5. I thought it might be because they are not HD yet, but also noticed I have two listings for KTVG even though they are not HD yet.

    HD channels for me are KOLN 10 CBS, KLKN 8 ABC, and KHAS 5 NBC.

    I have two listings for NBC (channel 5), ABC (channel 8), CBS (channel 10), FOX (channel 17), My TV (channel 25), PBS (channel 29), and CW (channel 51), but it looks like only our CBS and ABC are actually in HD even though their are two listings in EPG for all the networks. My question is why is their two listings for all the networks and only two of them being in HD? Are we supposed to get all the others at a later date????

    Thanks for the info about channel 13. I called my local CSR office (they used to be an NRTC provider) and they told me they thought getting 13 setup was still in the works. They also said more of our locals in HD were on the way.

    I heard that KHAS 5 (NBC) was showing the Today show in HD this morning. You may have to wait until evening (for HD programs) to really be able to tell what is in HD. If they give you NET-HD, then you will really be in tall clover.

    KHGI CH 13 ABC=just the same SD ch

    KTVG CH 17 FOX=have 2 chs listed in guide the one that says it is KTVG-DT has no audio and appears to be in SD

    MNT CH 25=have 2 chs listed in guide (info on the on that says MNT-DT has wrong programming info) and it appears to be SD

    KHNE CH 29=PBS seems to be a SD of the NETV CH 29 we already have been getting

    I don't have the 72.5 dish and the locals aren't showing up my D11 receivers. If I change to the D12 will they work ?

    If that won't work can I use an HD reciver and hook it up to a standard tv and recieve the locals without the 72.5 dish ?

    You have to have an MPEG-4 receiver to see these... They are not coming from 72.5... either 9 or 103.

    The problem I was having this morning and at noon on my H21-200 only showing channels 29 & 51 with the error message that there is a multi switch problem on channels 5,8,10,17 has been fixed.

    I came home tonight and all the locals are working on my H21-200

    Channel 5 seems to be in HD now as well. It wasn't this afternoon. Still no HD on Fox (17).
