    Directv will be installing a HR20 for on Jan 28, but after reading that the OTA tuners stilll aren't working for everyone I'm a bit leary. Here in Durham NC, I need the tuners for the CBS and FOX affils. Can anyone in the Raleigh-Durham area confirm DTV has resolved the OTA issues? If it's still a problem I may tell them to forget it and just use my HR10-250.

    My CBS and FOX stations are coming in fine using the OTA. The PBS and NBC stations worked with old HR10 DVR and using TV tuner. ABC used to come in some nights but never comes in with this tuner.

    WRDC 28.2 (27.2 digital channel before converting back to analog #)
    zip 27701 Ral-Durham NC

    This channel says searching for signal 771.
    The 28.1 works and if you check the signal meter 28.2 has a signal.


    Tried to reset the antenna setup and is still not working.

    They added WYDO 14.1 to the guide in the Greenville NC market.
    Still missing

    Zip - 02370
    Market - Boston
    Channel - 5-2 WCVB

    All other OTA channels work perfect but when I try to tune into this multicasted channel it does not come in. This channel is just a weather map with audio in the background. I currently have 2 HR20 and it does not work on both. I also have a HR10 and it works on that reciever.

    Also after tuning into that channel when I try to just do a channel advance the next channel will not tune in and it still has 5-2 info in info bar. I have to go into the guide and choose another channel that way.

    Channels: All "local" digital ch's

    Description of problem:

    Problem 1: No "local" OTA digital channels show up in the guide. I do get OTA digital stations in results for seaches.

    Problem 2: Using the channel up/down feature of the box does not tune to any OTA digital channels. Entering them manually does allow them to come in.

    I went through the OTA antenna setup twice, including cycling the power to try and get this to work.

    Channel # : 33-1
    Call-Sign : WVLADT (NBC)
    Description of Problem: Always says "searching for signal"

    I have an HR10-250 and this is breaking all of my season passes. If I rescan, I get a second "33-1" called "WVLA-DT" that I can tune to. This extra channel does not have any guide data mapped to it however so I can't record anything.

    For what it's worth, I know two other people locally with the HR10-250 and they have the same issue.

    Well, I came home tonight to the wonderful surprise of Fresno, CA PBS channels 18.1 and 18.2 on my HR20 in my guide. Looks like D* fixed this remapping issue. I didn't have to reset the OTA channels or anything. They just appeared in my guide and they both work like a charm!

    Thanks D*!

    I'm also in NJ, but my channel 11-1 DOES show a signal strength, although the signal is a slight bit weaker than some of the major networks.

    Getting a signal now on WFXI-DT Fox 8 Greenville Washington New Bern NC 27889

    But no picture, just 771 message.
    Signal is 58% getting other channels with less signal.


    I wish Directv would enable ota scanning atleast this way we could watch are missing channels.

    2.1 has never been strong. Also, 2 on D* HD hasn't been good either. It's probably the worst HD Local quality out there.
