    One station in Odessa-Midland is HD now, KPEJ (Fox) but for some reason the other additions, that were promised (CBS and NBC) have not been made to even SD yet and KPEJ is the only HD local on as of today. At least Fox now isn't stretched and cruddy looking.

    I agree with KOSA and KWES. I don't even get KWES at the casa. By the way, I am in Odessa now so we are just neighbors now ;) Sadly I was told on Tuesday that KOSA and KWES were to be added with the HD upgrade and when I got home last night I found that to not be true.

    KOSA (CBS) and KWES (NBC) have been active in SD but as of today they are no longer active...

    In order to tune to those channels follow these steps:

    1. Click the ACTIVE button on the remote
    2. Look at the most popular shows on TV
    3. When there is a show on CBS or NBC click on that.
    4. You will then be tuned to the local channel even though it isn't listed in the guide.
    5. Now use the Quicktune feature to mark the channel for easy recall.

    Again there is no video showing now but all last week there was...

    Hadn't tried that before, but tonight I did and on my H21-200 it goes black then back to the channel I was on before...

    On my HR21-700 it goes to a black screen with *KOSA - 7 for CBS and goes to NBCWHD for NBC then says I did not purchase it.

    Interestingly, the receive site for D* is supposedly in KOSA's studios so it seems funny to me that they don't have a contract to air KOSA.

    Incidentally I get KOSA beautifully over the air on one of my TVs, just can't DVR off of it. KWES gets a 0 reading at my house.
