I have an HR-21 receiver. At approximately 6:00am this morning (22-Oct-2008), I lost my local network HD channels (WRTV 6 ABC, WISH 8 CBS, WTHR 13 NBC, WXIN 59 Fox). Around 7:00am, I did a red button reset and got the channels back. Anybody else experience this? Any idea what might have caused it?

Yeah everything was HD during prime time but before that it wasn't. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on my TV weren't not and are not right now. Anyone getting Wheel of Fortune in HD right now on WTHR?

This evening, in the 8:00-8:15pm time frame, WISH 8 CBS and WXIN 59 Fox are appearing in HD both via DirecTV and OTA. I don't think WRTV 6 ABC or WTHR 13 NBC are broadcasting HD content during this time slot.

I have an HR21-700 receiver if that makes a difference.

Okay so I'm not going crazy then. Its been like that for two days now during the 7 o'clock hour. Wheel and Jeopardy and one of the news entertainment shows are suppose to be in HD but aren't. If you get a chance tomorrow during that time check it out.

Thanks

My Indy HD locals are not working. No 'searching for signal' errors, just a black screen on all HD local channels. SD locals are fine. Anyone else?

Mine are fine - you might try resending your authorization:

Or rebooting might help

No dice. Anything else I should try before calling customer service?

NBC is horrible! especially Sunday Night Football. Practically unwatchable with all the artifacts and macroblocking. MUCH better on Antenna. I mean this is Cable hooked up with RCA cables bad.

Terrible last night trying to watch NBC. OTA looked perfect! Wonder if adding WTTV-4 has anything to do with it?

I don't think it has anything to do with CWHD. I was watching a Notre Dame game three weeks ago...it was the first time I noticed it and it was horrible just like last night.. This was before the CWHD was turned on.
