Can you receive them with just the TV?

Assuming your TV has an ATSC tuner, that is.


DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

My OTA subchannels come and go constantly on all channels, it is really annoying.  Wish D* would just give us a straight OTA scan option.

I have not tried directly from the TV.

I reran DTV antenna initial setup but 8's Subchannels did not get picked up.
