    I am trying to set a recording using the Online Guide and I cannot remember a nugget of information.

    In the Online Guide, which channels have the "A3" designate: the actual OTA channels or the Locals beamed from the satellite?

    I have a couple of HR20's that receive both, but I want to set this recording on my HR22, which does not have OTA.

    Thanks

    A3 is the HD local from DirecTV.

    I only have one HR24 with the AM21 attached. I don't see my OTA channels on the online guide. How did you get the OTA locals to show up?

    The OP didn't say he saw the OTA displayed, just wondered what was displayed. As stated, A3 refers to the DirecTV delivered channel.

    That isn't the DirecTV website which was the OPs question, which BTW they don't show up on.
