    My Guide is set to only show the Channels I get, but it is showing 3 channels in don't get:

    530 SBLKHD
    531 SCINHD
    535 ENCeHD

    I have tried to reset the the receivers, refresh my services, switch the program guide from "channels I get" to "all channels" back to "channels i get", but i cannot get them to go away.

    Anyone have any idea what else i can do ?

    (I currently have the Choice Extra +HD/DVR Package)

    Create a custom profile and add them manually?

    I am finding channels that I put in custom lists are disappearing frequently. They always seem to be the more recent channel additions.

    Interesting. I have never had a channel disappear from a list.

    I hadn't either. It had been happening for a couple of weeks on the DVR in the LIving Room and tonight I just looked at H21/200 which had gotten an update today and discovered that most if not all of the HD additions from July along with Free Speech and Golden Eagle were unchecked.

    Me too! The new Showtimes, new Starz, new HBOs, Lifetime, & Hallmark...all HD versions.

    I think if you have the hide-SD duplicates feature turned on, and you have a SD channel in your custom list, then the HD version is added later, you have to manually add the HD version to your custom list. The receiver will not automatically add the HD version, it will just start hiding the SD version.

    If you're replying to me, I understand that. It's that after I add them, some randomly disappear after a reboot.

    I also have already added them and then they disappear.

    Hey, count yourself lucky it only shows 3! Mine has always shown dozens of channels I don't get and it makes autorecording useless for all practical purposes. DirectlTV is well aware of the problem but they seem unable to fix it. Incidentally, my HR 20 is planning to record Appointment with Murder (I have a Poirot autorecord) tomorrow morning on a channel I don't get (Starz I think). I left it alone to see what it does. I'm betting on 2 hours of black screen.
