    Hi all here is my issue...
    I have the Genie and I live in Buffalo and NYC ( split time due to work) - Anyway I was told that the AM21 would just plug into the Genie and search right away for any OTA channels without putting in a postal code...

    I'm a hockey fan so i enjoy the channels in Canada like CBC when I'm in Buffalo -

    What do i do? everytime i put the AM21 and my HR34 it asks me for postal code... I would think if it picks up any OTA signal it would pick it up regardless...

    Can anyone let me know how to get it to auto scan on the HR34/AM21 please

    Put in your code during the antenna setup and let it do it's thing. It'll scan. You just won't get Guide data for the Canadian channels. I'm assuming that the HR34 stays in Buffalo.

    There's no way to get around putting in a Zip Code. Like dettxw said it will scan after you've done that though.

    Right. The Zip code is to match those channels that are in the database and the get the guide data for those

    You do get to enter two zip codes though.
