I noticed HD networks in my DirecTV program guide (channels 80-89). I have an HR20 receiver and I pay for the HD program package. Who is eligible to receive these HD networks? I have seen other forums saying that you can receive distant networks only if you don't have locals or if your receiver is in an RV. Do those folks get the HD networks? I'm confused............!!!

Jeanne,

I live in NJ and I get all the locals from D* except chs 9(my9) and 11(CW11) which I get off air w/an attic antenna. The locals I receive are CBS, NBC, ABC & FOX.
I would call them to ascertain what exactly you should be getting.
Are you getting chs. 70 thru 79 and 95, 96??
