Just had the same thing in Tulsa, but it was on an HR20. I hit guide, then went to the HD channels. My daughter was watching Nickelodeon, so I stuck me in the 500's for Showtime and HBO. As I scrolled up, past the 70's, my locals showed up. Tuned to one, eventhough nobody had any HD programing at 9:30 in the morning, and they came in. When I changed channels, I got a searching for satellite message, hit guide again, and they were gone. Was really hoping to catch the NASCAR race in HD tomorrow.

The alternate channels are not carried by D*, I only get those on OTA as well as NBC-HD (thanks to Lin TV) and PBS.
Is KOCO-HD going to be carried on D*? I know they pulled the plug on Cox.

If they were listed as 9.1, 14.1 etc they are the OKC local OTA channels not the DirecTV HD locals. The DirecTV HD locals will appear in the guide as their callsign not as 9.1 etc. When the HR20 OTA tuners are activated (before the end of the year??) you will see these local OTA channels in the guide.

maybe you are correct maybe it was a referb unit he got and someone else in Okla had it before hooked up with a ota never thought about that it was new in box when installer brought it out but it still might have been used thanks...was just hoping that we were close though...lol...and maybe even get the extras like skywarn 4 weather channel also...one can dream
