    HR20-700 with OTA via attic antenna. It has worked fine for years. Now I'm missing channels or they are mis-assigned (i.e. ABC appearing on Fox). I've rebooted several times and redone antenna set up several times. Neither has corrected the problem. It's not consistent when I redo the setup. For example, some stations reappear while others disappear. I'm stuck. Any ideas?

    Did you clear down all the OTA settings before you tried to set them up again??

    Yes I did, twice.

    I've seen this problem a number of times, though not very recently. In my case, sometimes a simple reboot fixes it. Other times, I've had to go through antenna setup again to get it corrected.

    My fourth attempt at a complete reset solved the problem. Thanks.

    As I recall, the key to making an OA antenna reset work is to re-type in the ZIP code, even though it looks like the correct one is carried over from the previous set up.
