Need help with OTA Fox signal in Portland
Posted 01 June 2004 - 10:36 AM
The problem is that since my guide is incorrect, I cannot use the Tivo functionality to record anything from the OTA fox channel. I can set a manual record on channel 30.1, but I cannot do anything like a Season Pass.
I called Directv and they said the problem is the Fox station and that the guide info comes from the OTA transmission from Fox.
I called Fox and they said that the problem is probably on their side as they are only transmitting the 480i signal and nothing else. They said they are not transmitting the guide info though.
Does anyone know anything I can do to get channel 30.1 to map to channel 12.1 or any other ideas?

Might want to check on AVS for the thread on your local area HDTV and see what other users in your area are doing about the problem.

All I'm saying is you've got a few months to figure it out before they start sending out any HD that you'd want to record OTA.
