I've had HD locals for a couple years now from Portland, OR market. I am in Union county (eastern Oregon). Yesterday, out of the blue, no more HD locals. SD is there but HD version is gone from the guide and can't be tuned in. Called Dirctv. CSR says we don't get HD locals in my zip code. Uhh, yes we do. I have been getting them for a long time. I know what HD is and I got it. It was in the guide. I could select the guide to show SD and HD version and I could watch all 4 networks in HD if I chose. Now, HD is not in the guide. She said something about satallites may have moved or something, but they don't list that zip having HD. I still get all other HD. Slimline 5 lnb dish. HR20-700. I've rebooted, refreshed, rerun satallite setup. All signal strengths are same as they were before. Anybody know what's up with this situation. It makes no sense.
