    Has anyone else noticed that KTCA (PBS) channel 2 in MPLS-STP, is in HD, and KTCI, channel 17 has changed its programming to MN Life, but the guide data duplicates channel 2? And is therefore always wrong? It happened when the digital transition occurred on Feb. 17. I'd think by now the data would've corrected, but no. It is broadcast on digital channel 2.4, or maybe 2.3. The HD channel 2 is on 2.1 or 2.2. But DirecTV still puts the MN Life channel on channel 17. Still no guide data.....not able to record...etc. How does one get this changed??

    Also, the OTA channels have changed. I had to re-run the initial OTA setup to get the new channels (2-3 and 2-4) to appear in the guide on our HR20s.

    Just wondering how fast the spotbeam signal footprint drops off as you get further away from MSP, specifically to the north west. Anyone have a footprint map for this spot beam? Currently get the Fargo locals but since DTV won't bother to list this market in it's 2011 HD upgrade I am thinking of "moving"

    Did anyone notice how bad NBC was tonight during the SNF game? It was awful, lost the feed a couple times (no sat errors) and the sound would cut it and out multiple times within a min all night long. Just terrible, usually don't have any problems with this channel.

    On my HR24-500 with an AM21, local channel 45 OTA appears in the guide as channel 5-45 as it should. On my HR20-700, no matter what I do (redo antenna setup, restart receiver, etc.) channel 5-45 will not show up in the guide.

    Anyone else in MN experiencing this with a HR20-700? If so, DirecTV - please fix this before next years high school hockey tournament! :mad:

    I should add that I want this channel OTA because it is in HD OTA but not on DirecTV. :mad:
