    According to "Arizona's Own" web site, KAZT 7.1 is on the air and analog 27 is gone. I'm not at home so I cannot verify this on the HR20, 7.1 is listed in the OTA channels

    Check signal strength on 7.1 gets absolutely nothing for me on all HR20's. I get good to excellent signals on everything else OTA.

    Time to email Tribune Media Services. It is 27-1 on my channel list. That me be the reason why I could not get any signal.

    What about the HR20? Do you get it on this too?

    No. I do not get any signal. It is listed as 27-1 in the OTA channel list. I am unsure why the HR20 is not picking it up because they are using channel 27 for it's DTV signal in Phoenix. It might have something to to with the ID tag sending 7.1 and 7.2

    Well, I guess that makes me feel better - at least it's not just me. How do we get DirecTv to fix this though?

    As I understand it the channel is 27-1 but it's mapped to 7-1.

    Tribune Media Services needs to correct it.

    I'm still not sure that I understand where the problem lies and who needs to fix it:
    • CBS digital channel is actually on 17 but mapped to their analog channel - 5. We receive HD CBS on 5-1 on the HR20.
    • ABC digital channel is actually on 56 but mapped to their analog channel - 15. We receive HD ABC on 15-1 on the HR20.
    • NBC digital channel is actually on 36 but mapped to their analog channel - 12. We receive HD NBC on 12-1 on the HR20.
    • FOX digital channel is actually on 31 but mapped to their analog channel - 10. We receive HD FOX on 10-1 on the HR20.
    • PBS digital channel is actually on 29 but mapped to their analog channel - 8. We receive HD CBS on 8-1 on the HR20.
    • MYTV digital channel is actually on 26 but mapped to their analog channel - 45. We receive HD MYTV on 45-1 on the HR20.
    • CW digital channel is actually on 49 but mapped to their analog channel - 61. We receive HD CW on 61-1 on the HR20.
    • KTKV digital channel is actually on 24 but mapped to their analog channel - 3. We receive HD KTKV on 3-1 on the HR20.
    Why wouldn't KAZTV (7/27) work the same way?

    That is the problem, KAZT is mapping 27 to 7
    I can't remember what it called, but it is sent with the transmission so the ATSC tuner displays 5-1 for 17. Once in awhile it went off and I had to tune to the actual channel, 17-1 to watch 5-1 in HD when I had the SD TiVo hooked up to my Sammy and wanted to watch CSI in HD.
    EDIT: I found out that it is called PSIP, Program and System Information Protocol

    7.2 is up and running. I can't get it OTA via my HR20-700. I do receive 7.2 via my TV's OTA tuner. I did a soft reset, no change.

    Is that in Phoenix as well, or just in Prescott? I'll have to check out the OTA channel when I get home.

    I'm guessing its in Phoenix too, because Cox cable is adding it.

    I had to redo the setup to get it, but it is in 720p. I was getting a SFS. I also checked using the Sammy's internal ATSC tuner and it says HD. Still no 7-2 on my HR20 though.

    When I channel search on my TiVo, I get 2 sets of results for 7.1 and 7.2. The KAZT-DT1 and KAZT-DT2 results in no reception. The KAZT-CD1 and KAZT-CD2 work. My DirecTV OTA receiver tries to find KAZT-DT1 and KAZT-DT2 without success. Does anyone understand the difference between the DT and CD types of digital broadcast?

    DT is for full power digital, CD is for class A low power digital stations. The Phoenix translator is the CD. The station in Prescott is DT
