    Is there a way to tell which tuner you are using at any given time when watching live tv? Having problem with what seems to be a couple of fox stations 663 fox sports Detroit hd and channel 2 local fox. I get a lot of pixelating but if I start double play so that I am on another tuner it goes away but if I switch back to other tuner it is still there
    Thanks

    There's no way to tell which tuner you are on with any of DirecTV's HR receivers.

    How do I tell which sat and transponder to check for those stations?

    Although it won't tell you what transponder and sat, you can get signal strength for the channel you're watching with IP control enabled and a browser

    http://[i]ip.of.receiver[/i]:8080/serial/processCommand?cmd=FA90

    You'll see something like:

    {
    "command": true,
    "param": true,
    "prefix": true,
    "return": {
    "data": "5F",
    "response": 244,
    "value": 0
    },
    "status": {
    "code": 200,
    "commandResult": 0,
    "msg": "OK.",
    "query": "/serial/processCommand?cmd=FA90"
    }
    }

    "5F" is the signal strength of the tuned channel in hex (95).

    So if I have sd channel hidden then will I not see any signal because I show two listings for channel 2 Detroit but only one has any signal

    The signal will be there, the channels just won't show up in the guide.
