    So far the AM21 has not been able to find my local market. It searches for several minutes and then says it can't find it. I tried both my local zip code and the main zip code for downtown Charleston, but neither worked.

    I know the data is available since I get it on all 3 HR20's. BTW: Charleston/Huntington WV DMA

    Suggestions?

    Will do.

    Right now it seems hung "searching for local market" so I may have to RBR.

    OK, on the fourth time though after the RBR, it found the market. Everything progressed well until it returned me to live TV. Then I went to get the Guide to see if my OTA channels were there and it did 2 things. It looked like the Guide page tried to come up as it put my screen up in the top corner, but that part went black with "Acquiring Guide Data" in white letters and the rest of the screen has the Please wait bar that is no longer rolling. Everything is locked, so another RBR is on its way.

    OK, the last RBR seemed to fix it.:) I am getting good signal on all my OTA stations.

    I remember one problem from when the HR20 first had the antenna setup activated. Even if your zip code would show up during the antenna setup, it often would not be recognized unless you re-entered the numbers. That may be a possible reason some people are having trouble getting their market recognized.

    When it told he that it couldn't find my secondary market I went back and entered another zip code and that didn't work either.

    My zip was pre-entered, but I re-typed it anyhow and did not have any problems.
