    Finally WEPX DT 38.1 has been added to the guide. The station was launched in digital in January.

    However Directv did not add the 3 sub channels to the guide.

    WEPX-DT2 38.2 QUBO
    WEPX-DT3 38.3 ION LIFE

    I had to rescan in the Lubbock, TX market for OTA for KCBD-DT
    11-1. I rescanned all of my receivers and it works great on my R22s but I does not work on my HR20-100.

    I do receive great signal strength at 100% but when I turn to 11-1 I get the "searching for signal" reference.

    Location: Washington, DC
    Channel: 9-1
    Issue: They changed frequencies today. It worked on the new frequency earlier today, but does not work now on my HR20-100. The other subchannel still works. 9-1 still works fine on my HR21-100. About 75% signal strength on the HR20-100.

    Call Sign: WJLA
    Location: Washington, DC
    Channel: 7-1
    Issue: They also changed frequencies today. It worked on the new frequency earlier today, but does not work now on my HR20-100. The other subchannels still work. 7-1 still works fine on my HR21-100. About 80% signal strength on the HR20-100.

    Call Sign: WLS
    Location: Chicago
    Channel: 7-1, 7-2, 7-3
    Issue: I was getting 7-1, 7-2, 7-3 when I got home from work even though they changed broadcast freq. I decided to check the signal strength and it showed 0 on 7-1, etc.

    At this point I decided to search for local channels again on the antenna. Bad idea. I lost 7-1, but 7-2 and 7-3 still work.

    7-1 shows in the guide, but I get a 771 error. I went into signal strength and it shows 7-1 getting 100% signal. I don't get it.

    This is a HR20.

    as a side note I still don't get 26-1. I had this problem with this for months.

    Call Sign: KCWI (CW)/KDMI (MyTV) (Information Updated)
    Location: Des Moines, IA
    Channels: 23-1 (KCWI) and 19-1 (KDMI). Both broadcasting on RF channel 23.
    Issue: 19-1 is not listed as an available channel. 23-1 (KCWI) is listed as an available channel on the HR20, but tuning to 23-1 brings up KDMI. KDMI moved from channel 56-1 to channel 19-1 after the transition. 56-1 and 56-2 are showing as available on the HR20, but nothing is airing on these channels.

    Call Sign: KFPX (ION)
    Location: Des Moines, IA
    Channels: 39-2, 39-3, 39-4 (Broadcasting on RF channel 39)
    Issue: Subchannels added but not available on the HR20.

    I did the same thing (rescaned) and I did get 7-1 working, but I'm having the same problem as you. 26-1 is missing, but if you go to 48-1 you will receive the programming of 26-1. Something must be wrong with the data DirecTV is sending down.

    I live in buffalo NY zip code 14227. Recently (june 12 2009) WGRZ (nbc) broadcasting on digital channel 34 (2-1) started a new channel. The channel is 2-3 and is the RTV network formally RTN. I do not get this channel from my directv HR20 ota reciever. IT does not download the 2-3 channel into my ota guide. Who do i contact to get directv to update their ota downloading database? thanks

    Same problem on my HR20-700. I did an RBR and 7-1 is now working. 26-1 WCIUDT is missing. 26 is availabe from the Sat in SD.
    48-1 is labeled WCIUDT and has guide data that matches 26. However, actual shows on that channel tonight were not the same as 26. I think it was MeTV or MeToo.

    how long does it usually take for a new OTA channel to show up on a Directv receiver? We just had the CW HD OTA feed go live in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.
