Also in your post, please click the button to REMOVE your signature, as it will cut down on the size of the post.

I'll make sure DirecTV sees the thread, and has someone take a look at the guide data.

Channel: 9-1 ; Totally missing
Channel: 9-2 ; Totally missing

with a few other issues....

The situation is a little confusing. On the Hr20, guide data appears for 11-1 (nbc yuma), signal strength is 98-100, but no picture live. This channel has no issues with the hr10 from the same antenna setup (both diplexed and new ota cable run). Last night, I experiemented with 11-1(on the Hr20 by hitting record on the blank screen going back to LIST and actually watched this channel while it was being recorded in HDTV (Excellent picture). My H20 has the same problem, but does produce the above 9-1, and 9-2 (fox) channels with no problems. Ironically, the Hr10 shows the 9-1, 9-2, but with no guide data (ever). Have moved all three recievers around, reset a few times, re configured the OTA setup a few times and everything produces the same result. On my HR10, the 9-1,9-2 channels did produce a 60-65 signal rating, which was my lowest, but still was able to watch channels.

Sorry that this was longer that what was likely intended for this thread, but I did not want to post in multiple threads the full problems.....thanks

Channel 2-1 (wbbm) Totally missing.


As I mentioned on another thread, I can get this channel just fine through my tv tuner, but get a "Not Aquired" on the hr20.

WWMT 3-1 and 3-2 as well as WZZM 13-1 and 13-2 don't get any signal at all. On other devices I do get signal. I'm betting they have the physical channel setup wrong. WWMT is digital 2 and WZZM is digital 39. Can you have someone check into that Earl?


Thanks!
