    Problem: These are switched according to guide data (14.1 has 14.2 shows and vice-versa). This has also been an issue as long as I can remember in Snapstream data

    Problem: In guide, but black screen (not sure if it is actually active or not)

    EDIT: 14.3 did show up later. The issue from the post above this remains (14.1 and 14.2 are switched)

    DirecTV has made note of every channel you have reported.

    So I am going to unstick this for now... Untill there is a new version that targets OTA improvements.

    To me the only OTA improvement will be letting the box scan for all available channels....

    I couldn't agree more. The HR20 should allow us to scan for available OTA signals regardless of if the guide knows about them or not. This is how my old Toshiba DST3000 worked. It was great. In the early digital OTA days it let me pick up every station in range at a time when some did not have entries in the APG (Advanced Program Guide).

    Another desirable feature would be the ability to enter the raw channel number. For example, in Rochester, NY on the DST3000, I could punch up 59-1 (WHAM-DT' actual channel frequency for Digital) and then shortly channel banner would map to 13-1. I believe there is data in the stream that carries the channel number mapping.

    No here in Chicago. CBS, the VHF channel, does not work. Also, my experience is that the HR20 tuners are vastly inferior to my plasma TV tuner, and this is fairly common amongst many threads here.

    Here is what I am seeing witn 0x120 . ( Note no changes since 0x115)

    Problems in Norman, OK 73072

    ZIP Code: 73072
    Channel #: 14-2, 14-3, 14-4, 14-5
    Call-Sign: KTBO-DT
    Description of Problem: Missing From Guide, Present and tunable on H20 connected to the same antenna (note 14-1 is present in the guide and tunable)

    ZIP Code: 73072
    Channel #: 30-1
    Call-Sign: KTUZ-DT
    Description of Problem: Missing From Guide, Present and tunable on H20 connected to the same antenna

    ZIP Code: 73072
    Channel #: 62-4
    Call-Sign: KOPX-DT
    Description of Problem: Missing From Guide, Present and tunable on H20 connected to the same antenna (note: 62-1, 62-2, and 62-3 are present in the guide and tunable)

    Are these issues going to be addressed by the DirecTV team? Do we need to start a new tread to help give more visibility to these problems?

    Channel# : 24-2
    Call : WATM-DT
    Description: Missing on HR20, Appears as "Regular Schedule" in DTivo guide

    Channel# : 24-3
    Call : WWCP-DT
    Description: Channel is SD subchannel on 24 in our area. Does not appear in HR20 guide. Appears as "regular schedule" in DTivo guide.

    WATM (the 'owners' of channel 24-DT) is owned by the same ownership group as WWCP. In the northern part of the DMA, WATM-DT (24) carries WWCP as an SD subchannel. In the southern part of our DMA, WWCP-DT (29) carries WATM as an SD subchannel.

    In my location, I do not receive channel 29, so I have to get WWCP (fox) from the SD subchannel on 24.

    when I tune 8-1 on the HR20, I get "771". I can "see" the SD subchannel on the DTivo, but no guide data is available.

    Oh really, Earl? I got this today (from the station engineer) when I had finally had it while waiting seemingly forever for something to get fixed on WSEC-DT here in Illinois and decided to try a fax (after already posting here, adding an entry to the web page in a newer thread, and trying to e-mail the station and it getting bounced).

    I mean, this is as about as basic a fix as it can get--and it didn't get done by DirecTV. My posts about issues with this channel were posted in this thread the day before you posted your response--this was 9 months ago--and I've had it on the web page in the newer post for at least a couple of months after complaining in that thread that it was never fixed.

    Obviously many of the issues in these threads must have been resolved by DirecTV or there would be more complaint followups than there have been--but in my case I should have just contacted the station earlier--and I'd recommend that for anybody here as well if you don't get your issue fixed rather soon.

    Of course, maybe Tribune dropped the ball and they may again and this may not get fixed after all.
