KAZQ-DT, has just added a new subchannel carrying their sister low power station KTVS-LP analog ch. 36 on 32.3 "Real digital channel number is 17.3".

But there are no guide information.

I guess Directv, is still asleep in this Albuquerque's TV market......:hurah:

TODD, When you say "Run a Scan" do you mean you were able to do a channel search scan?


Oops. Poor choice of words on my part. I meant when you put in your zip code and then the guide data is downloaded for you OTA locals. My bad. :blush:

Has anyone who has sent a message to zap2it/Tribune about erroneous or missing channels ever actually gotten results? It feels like talking to a wall.

I sent them an email about KAZT doing a flash cut to digital. The next day the analog listing was gone and 7.1 and 7.2 were listed

The contact at Tribune that worked for us here in New Orleans for this situation is Eamon Foster (518-792-9914 x2281). The best thing is to have someone at the station call him directly. When that happened, our problem here in New Orleans was corrected the next morning.

Hope this helps.

I have two H20s and one HR21. The OTA program guide info. is missing from both H20s -- all of it. The HR21 has all the correct information. An RBR doesn't help, either. Nothing has changed at my end -- anyone know something?

Slimline feeds an SWM-8, diplexed with an OTA Square Shooter SS2000, using a Sonora AD14 active diplexer, plus a Sonora LA141R amplifier and a 4-way splitter (3 used).
Results distributed to two H20 receivers plus an HR21-Pro feeding three Sharp Aquos LCD screens, the largest being a 57" unit. Diplexers used for all receivers to split off OTA signals. HR21-Pro has an AM21 OTA receiver, and feeds into a Sony STR DA5200ES receiver. Also connected is a Sony Blu Ray player.

So, I reset the OTA antenna for each H20 and the program guides returned. We'll see what happens in the weeks ahead.

Channel: 23-1, 23-2
Issue: Channel 23-1 is showing channel 23-3 (an audio channel). There is no 23-3 in the guide

UPDATE
Just redid the antenna setup, and 23-1 disappeared. 23-2 is correct, and 23-3 is the audio channel with guide info for 23-1.

In the Miami, FL. OTA market it(Universal Sports) is on the 6.3 sub of NBC 6 local. Funny thing is that I can see it of the TV's tuner, I also see the actual 6.3 channel in OTA's found from the HR-20's tuner, but nothing in the guide. 6.1(NBC 6 Miami) and 6.2(NBC 6 weather) show up perfectly in the guide, but NOTHING on 6.3 (Universal Sports) I've reset the OFF-AIR Antenna a couple of times, and same thing, finds the channel 6.3 for the locals OTA available, but even after a week nothing populates the guide.

Call Sign: KTFO-CA
Location: Austin DMA
Channel: 62-2 (RF 13)

Issue: D* now has finally put this channel into the channel guide, but tuning to it gives the 771 error. I confirmed the signal is good from a DTT-901 in another room. Also, the D* HR20-700 pulls in 62-1 perfectly fine. My suspicion is that the box isn't tuning to RF channel 13 for 62-2 while it is doing so for 62-1.

Up until this past week I was getting all of my OTA signals just fine in Eugene, Oregon but now I can't seem to get CBS or NBC. The guide/antenna setup no longer has channels 13.1 (CBS) and 16.1 (NBC) available. Instead they have 13.3 and 16.4. Both seem like errors since they aren't listed in numerical order. Anyone else have this problem?

HR-20

Call Sign: WCIU-DT
Location: Chicago, IL
Channel: 26-1, 26-2, 26-3, 26-4, 26-6
Issue: Channel 26-1 is not showing up after rescanning for OTA channels, but 48-1 appeared and is showing the programming for 26-1 and the program listing information for 26-3.

I may try to rescan again on June 12th in hopes the issue gets fixed.
