Can anyone tell me why my hughes e86 dtv hd receivers will not receive ota hd signals without a dtv subscription? I have had 2 e86's for about 4 yrs. just using for ota hd. finally subscribed to dtv 1 yr ago and also got 2 h20's. finally got fed up with the h20's continual problems and cancelled dtv. now hughes will not receive ota. is there a way around this problem or do i need to call a attorny? thanks in advance for info.:mad:

Some of the older (non-Directv brand) receivers will receive OTA without a subscription. You might try unplugging it for a few minutes and restarting it, then going through the setup. I doubt that an attorney could help.

I have an E86 that's not subscribed and it works fine for OTA digital. NTSC tuner went out though, so no analog OTA - those boxes had tuner problems.

I had an old Hughes E86 that I had no use for so I gave t to a friend. He uses it for OTA and it works fine. He does not subscribe to D* either.
