I wish I could. That would make the solution much easier. I'm hoping there might be someone in this area reading this!

I have a question for you AM-21 users:

 

I have the AM-21 OTA tuner hooked to my HD-DVR. I live in the Omaha area and get all over-the-air channels and sub channels just fine. I am able to record all of the over-the-air channels with the exception of 6.1,which is the main NBC feed (WOWT). It appears to record just fine, according to the LIST, but when I try to play it back, I get an instant 'KEEP or DELETE' message. All the other over-the-air channels record and play back just fine. The sub channel for WOWT, 6.2, records and plays back fine too!

 

I moved the AM-21 to a different DVR and it does the same thing. Does anyone have a clue as to my problem? I have been in contact with the Chief Engineer at WOWT and he assures me that there is nothing on his end and wants to me let him know what I find out.

 

Anyone?

 

I'm not from the Omaha area but one quick question. What happens when you try to tune to that station and watch it live?

I have a couple stations in the Minneapolis, MN Area that it states I can get but when I tune to them they are blank. Evidently my antenna is not good enough or it is not pointed in the correct direction for those channels.

What channels are you missing? I'm in that area, and can maybe help you.

I need an ota antanna to get my actual locals the fcc has me invthe dallas market but the better news and weather info comes from ardmore ok. We have 2 local stations 30 miles away but their transmitters are a lot farther away and since locals are determined by transmitter location I can't get the more local channels Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using DBSTalk mobile app
