    Note, I have been told that HR20-100's will not be receiving this release at this point.

    "ATSC channel handling improvements" could mean nearly anything. Is there any more detail on this?

    Would it address the problems I've been having with OTA channels being mapped to incorrect frequencies?

    Thanks

    It might... check when you get home and let us know. I do know that there were certain markets with issues that were addressed.

    Thanks, Stuart. I really appreciate your work to keep us up to date, but the release notes are sometimes maddeningly vague ;).

    You may need to go through OTA setup again as many stations have changed frequencies during the DTV transition process.

    Fine by me, as my HR20-100 has been great since the last update.

    Don't fix what isn't broken (at least not until DLB goes national :))

    Pure speculation here, but my guess is that the ATSC handling improvement relates in some way to this problem (from the previous national release):

    I'd say that's a good guess, but it's still a guess. Perhaps if someone who has had this problem can let us know if it was fixed for them...

    I've been having problems with my LIL channels audio breaking up a lot. Started beginning of May. Last 3 episodes of Idol, each was worse than the last. Only Chicago stations do it for me. All National channels are fine. Its possible I've got a tree partially blocking one sat but this problem started rather abruptly and the trees that might be impeding are not tress that shed their leaves, they are evergreen trees....

    Hopefully it will help. My signals are good on all sats. Pic never breaks up but audio goes away for a second then squeals and pops really loud (surround) when it comes back in. It cuts for 2 to 10 seconds at a time but some of that may be 5.1 recovering as well.

    Come to think of it, this only occurs on the HD channels. I don't think it affects the SD over the air channels.

    Again only on Chicago stations over the sat. I have an antenna on the tuner but only use it to record programs that are on sub-channels not delivered by DirecTV. They all appear fine.

    I tend to think it may have something to do with something else happening SOON with ATSC :)

    Could be. Lost our MNT affiliate on 4/30 when they moved to their post-transition channel. Our HR boxes are still "looking" for the station on the old frequency. We also have a new full-power DT station (TBN) coming online on the 12th...

    I'm not real frequent to these boards, so if I am the only one missing the obvious I apologize....but what does this mean?

    He refers to the June 12th transition to digital broadcasting. You may have seen a commercial or two about it ;):)

    Oh Please don't stay the execution again. I'm so sick of the scrolls over the programs... Why couldn't they have just had them write something into the scripts. They just get up out of a chair and say.. "speaking of change, do you have a digital signal yet? Here are the ways you can get one".
