    There are several stations which RTN is not a sub-channel. I can think of a couple which offer both RTN and CW or MYNetworkTV during prime time..

    Neither 7.1 nor 7.2 come through on the HR20. Both are fine when fed directly from the TV. I suppose it might be a weak OTA signal and a more sensitive tuner in the TV, but I do have an inline amp beefing up the OTA signal.

    No...not in Wichita. D* provides none of the LPs in the guide data.

    KAZT-CA (Digital 27 = PSIP 7.1 / 7.2) is right next door to KUTP (Digital 26 = PSIP 45.1 / 45.2). (Which may make reception very difficult for you, if KUTP overpowers the signal in your area).

    This may be remedied by the following (from Wikipedia):

    This will give the Digital space currently occupied by KPNX (Digital 36 / PSIP 12.1 / 12.2) to KAZT once the conversion happens in June.

    Your signal issues may clear up by then. Though, this probably applies less to people who are having issues with 7.2 exclusively.

    Personally, I've always had a rough time with KAZT-CA (Digital 27). I moved recently, and seem to be having better luck (with both 7.1 and 7.2) - assuming I mount a good antenna in my attic facing in the correct direction.

    But come to think of it, I may have noticed this running the antenna directly to my TV - and not the AM21 device hooked up to my HR21.

    From reading this, I wonder if the Tribune data that DirecTV uses has 7.2 mapped to a completely different space in the analog spectrum (such as Prescott's true broadcast 25, Prescott's Analog 7, or Phoenix cable's 13). KAZT has so many channel numbers, it's possible we're suffering from bad mapping for the OTA channels in the program guide data.

    We were getting 7.2 until it switched to RTN. We have been getting the "Searching for OTA Signal" since, even though the meter shows it's there. I get it fine with my Sammy's internal tuner. I was sent a PM that KAZT is aware of the issue.

    Would like it, but there's no RTN in SE Texas. In fact, it's interesting to note the significant number of major markets that do not have RTN available.

    I suppose, for now, I'll have to keep relying on my HR22/PlayOn/Hulu combination for my Adam-12 fix.

    Can your HR20-100 receive the sub channel?

    Yes, although that affiliate WTOV 9.1 and 9.2 is still UHF lower power and the signal isn't always reliable. They will switch to all digital 4/16 and the signal power will go from UHF to VHF and will increase in strength.

    That appears to be the same for the Tyler TX market. It shows up in my guide, but any time that I've checked it out, they're broadcasting local programming - specifically simulcasting a talk radio program.
