My equipment: HR21-200 w/ AM21

When watching Channel 38-1 (WCPX, Chicago ION affiliate) to watch HD programming, I regularly get complete audio drop outs. Audio doesn't come back unless I change to another channel and change back (I typically tune to Channel 38 to verify that the D* SD feed is not also having this problem and it may be just a broadcast issue) . This problem has been occurring sporadically for at least the past half year.

Houston, I am unable to receive 13.1 or 11.1 with AM21 connected to HR24-500. I contacted directv about the issue today. Anybody else in Houston having this problem? I don't think it is a tuner issue, but a guide issue.

Chicago DMA:
unable to receive WPVN, and WOCK. D* removed them from my channel list.

WYIN needs to be remapped for proper subchannels.

Milwaukee DMA:
WMVT needs to be remapped
