    Hi Everyone, Considering switching to Directv. Is there a place to look up which local stations are included by zip code ?

    New to the forum and topic, but was recently given both an old Dual-OTA-Adapter-Tuner-USB 212553 and USB Sling Adapter SB700. Prior to posting, I did a search for both 212553 and SB700, and finding nothing, I suspect they may be old, legacy devices. Question: can these adapters be repurposed...

    I've had issues with OTA channels before. I have one of the older Hoppers that has to reboot every day and the OTA streams will get glitchy until you turn the Hopper back on and tune to an OTA channel. I've posted about that elsewhere. Now I'm encountering another OTA issue. I haven't...

    I received an e-mail from dish offering to install an OTA antenna to save me $12 a month. Anyone else have this done? I have a decent OTA antenna but it doesn't seem to pick up many channels in my area (Glendale, CA). Are the Dish OTA antennas better at picking than others? Curious.

    I've been hoping to get the best picture for my afternoon football games so I thought I would give OTA a run. I went through the variety of ways to set up an OTR dvr when I came across the AM21N. After a little more digging I found some mentions of the HR24 software having issues with the...
