    You need an AM21 tuner module if you want OTA and it will show up in your guide. You're at the mercy of DIRECTV's guide data for available channels unless you have an HR34. The rest of the HD receiver lineup doesn't scan for channels.

    All you need for that is an AM21. Install one of those, hook up your antenna and you're good to go.

    Thanks in advance.

    On directv.com for $50 or solidsignal.com for $50. I think Amazon has them as well.

    You can add an ota tuner to the HR24, it is called an AM21 and will integrate with your guide in the HR24. I have two of them here on different HR boxes, and they work well. You may not get every local channel, but the big network ones are pretty certain. Cost is about $50.00

    With both my HR23 and HR24, sometimes when I select a KEYWORD in the so-called SMART SEARCH function, the data portion of the screen will go black for up to one full minute. Then the KEYWORD results will finally appear.

    Not sure if this is related to this update but 2 days ago my HR21-200 was sluggish so I rebooted it and now my AM21 is no longer recognized. I have tried resetting the off-air settings and running the initial set up but nothing has worked. Has anyone else experienced this?

    My HR21-100 and HR21-200 and H23-600 have all been updated and the 720p problem is gone. However, my 4 H24-700's have not been updated to 0X05CD and it has been weeks.

    So I still have the 720p problem and handshake issues and the first time I put in a channel number it never takes are still there on the H24-700.

    Obviously, there is something different with these boxes or they wouldn't need a separate version of the software only for these boxes.

    Does anyone know why these are taking so long to update? It is getting very frustrating.

    I know this doesn't solve the problems, but whenever the channel number response gets wacky, push the blue button first, then enter the channel number.

    Lately when I turn my TV on, (DVR is never in standby) I have black bars at the top and bottom of the image. I have to change channels then come back to get back to full height picture. While watching tonight, the picture went blank and no audio. After a second or two the picture came back but the image was squished again. This has been happening for a while, but can't say since 6-20 when the software was downloaded. Very annoying. Haven't read where anyone else is reporting this. :( I hope it's a handshake issue on Dtv part, I don't want to buy a new TV.

    HR22 --> Samsung LN-T466?F where ? is a 1 or 5. Not sure which.

    Mostly watch HGTV for whatever that is worth.

    Major MRV problems especially on newer receivers with built in DECA H24 and HR24.

    Playlists not loading fully on iPad app, Nomad not seeing whole playlist and deleted transcoded shows.

    Not the tv or handshake as the bedroom tv had the same problem this morning and it is fed from the same DVR via the monoprice component to composite converter -> modulator. So clearly no hand shaking going on there.

    So I reset the DVR before going to work. Came home this evening, so far so good. No more black bars at top and bottom of picture. Hope it is "fixed" now.

    Both HR21 and Hr20 switched at 6pm to channel 147 CINEHD to record autorecord series link "ALL BREWERS" and showed to be recording brewers at reds, however, the screen just showed the Directv logo. The game was actually in 669-1.

    Received update on my HR24-500 on 6/25 and have had problems ever since. When the DVR is idle for 5+ hours, it locks up, can't be turned on via remote or front panel, doesn't record shows, and must be reset to work again. I tried turning off power saving, resetting to defaults, changing from HDMI to component cables, and am now resorting to getting a new DVR so I will lose everything that is recorded. Not sure if it is the update but the problems started the next day and haven't had any problems since I got this DVR just over a year ago.

    Still same resolution not supported.
    Now in the last 2 weeks there's a flickering whitish line on top of screen sometimes and it's always in the mini widow.
    What the heck is this?

    That's the encoded data for closed captioning. It's always transmitted on SD stations that support it but typically the TV overscan clips it. Most HD sets allow you to tweak either the overscan or supply a format mode that provides for some clipping of the closed caption encodes. Fiddle with your format options and you should be good to go.

    As I had noted in my prior post I had gotten updates on all my boxes except the 4 H24-700's.

    Yesterday I received new software on these but the number is 0X5D5 not 0X05CD and it solved the channel and handshake issues.

    So it took time but I am a happy camper.

    But it's never been there till now. And I've changed nothing. I can turn off then on the DVR and it's gone. So this doesn't seem to fit what you said it is. I believe you. It just doesn't seem to fit. Make sense.

    I get the CC info line on my screen on occasion. It only happens with specific channels, and it isn't consistent. Adjusting the overscan on your television will eliminate the problem if it is too irritating. I doubt it is coming from DirecTV, but in the supply DirecTV gets, and passes on.

    It's not my tv. It's directv. I never had this issue till recently and with all the issues with directv, the issue points there. My tv doesn't have any whatever features anyway.

    If what yer all saying is true then it would have been there all the time. It has not.

    I say all this out of pissed offness and stuff.
