I've been having problems with my HR20-700 the last few weeks. The guide shows 2 58-1 channels, and I cannot get a signal on either channel:
58-1 WMLWDT
58-1 WDJTDT
58-2 WDJTDT2
58-3 WDJTDT3
58-4 WDJTDT4

The subchannels are fine. If I RBR, everything seems to work for a day or two, but eventually goes right back to the same issue. It appears that others in Milwaukee with the AM-21 OTA tuner are having the same issue. (see milwaukeehdtv.org forum below). Anyone know what's up?

This looks like a screwup in the data coming from the station to Tribune, or some weird PSIP issue. WMLW and WDJT are owned by the same company, transmitted from the same tower. WMLW is transmitted on channel 13 but is very low power, but is also transmitted on a subchannel of WDJT (on 58-2 according to Wikipedia).
The wikipedia entry for the station http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WMLW-CA makes interesting reading, and there are lots of opprtunities for confusion in the reporting to Tribune and the setting up of the database.
A phone call to the station engineering department at WMLW/WDJT might help solve the problem.

I think WDJT (CBS, Milwaukee), which is a Weigel station monitors MilwaukeeHDTV.org, so they must know what's going on, but nothing ever gets fixed. Also, Weigel hasn't made an HD deal with DirecTV, so unless one has OTA facilities, ML58 is plain old analog (as re-broadcast from the satellite).
