    Can you get it OTA?
    If so, then DirecTV will need to add it to their database.
    If you want it delivered from the satellite, you'll need to ask DirecTV to add it.

    Why didn't this station opt for must-carry and provide an adequate signal to DirecTV? DirecTV is not going to pay for this.

    WPVN is a low power station and D* isn't required to carry it. I can get it OTA as I'm about 10 mi. away from their Schaumburg transmitter. AVSForum reported that it has applied to move the transmitter to a Chicago Loop tower. Even if they don't increase their power, that should increase their range.

    I to would rather see CLTV (HD) provided by D*.

    Urgh. Tried to add 24.1 to my OTA. No go. Directv OTA doesn't see it.

    No, the D* receivers with OTA won't. I get it with the TV tuner.

    The DirecTV Local Reception Facility is in Oak Brook so it falls within their grade A contour (If I'm reading the coverage map right.)
