I have a question. I have a directv system setup in my home in the salt lake city area. I have a cabin in montana that I have setup one of my recievers at the cabin with the slimline Satelite dish. I don't seem to beable to get local HD channels from the SLC area. I get regular channels but not HD local channels. I get all of the other HD channels though. Is this a setup problem or can I not get the signal for the SLC local HD channels because I am in montana.

Your local stations are being sent via a spotbeam which only covers the area near SLC and Montana is too far away to see them.
