As of this evening (Friday, March 12th), channel 10-1 (WILM-CBS) is back in the guide!
Perhaps DBStalk and this thread have played a part in getting this resolved, perhaps it was other influences, either way, thanks DIRECTV for restoring the guide for this channel.
Now I just hope for two things on this subject:
1) that it's a permanent correction and I don't wake up on another morning and find it gone again,
2) that other users across the country are also seeing their missing OTA channels restored.
Thanks to Doug and all at DBStalk for their help in this!!!
Well I did speak too soon. Less than a day after everything was restored it's now gone again. Last night when I got in, the channel was back, all my series links were back, all without any action on my part (no reboot, rescan, etc.).
This afternoon - March 13th, when I returned from work, 10-1 was gone again from both my HR20 receivers.
DIRECTV - this is total incompetence on your part. It's bad enough that you dropped our ability to receive CBS in the first place, but then to toy with us by putting it back for just a few hours is insulting. I think this warrants attention from the FCC.
