    Thanks for the info. I was thinking about making my own HD antenna to try to pick up those other HD channels.
    I would love WSTM's weather channel.
    Can hardly wait for those other HDs to show up.

    With a market as big as Toledo, one would wonder just why it took so long getting here. Well, better late than never.

    I may be mistaken but isn't there a national HD CW channel that CW allows customers to use who don't have CW HD via DirecTV?

    When I signed up last year they said we could expect our HD locals on by December (of 2007), I'm still waiting for our locals in SD.

    I can't believe they launch them looking like they are ... I haven't been able to wathc any program tonight without it blackening out, pixel, etc...

    I wish they would have kept the old ones ... until they knew the HD version mpeg4 versions were ready.

    Might have wanted to have some "test" or "beta testers" in the area to try it out first like with the CE versions.

    If I can't see the new HD sat channels (Mobile, AL) and I have the OTA versions, is there something special I need to do to see them both? I can see the SD sat channels and all of the OTA on my HR20. I do have LiL and HD Access, of course. Do I need to re-run setup or something?

    This is weird because a co-worker had the same problem for awhile last night but then it went away. However, I have never had a problem with them one bit, nor has two other people I know. Wonder if it your software? dvr? dish?

    My guess is that since FOX 36 is owned by LIN, the whole process was delayed until LIN signed a contract because the equipment has been installed for over a year now.

    Dirac: They should just show up. If they don't, make sure you aren't using a custom favorites list. If that's not it, try rebooting your receiver.
