The HR20s do not scan for OTA signals. Instead, the OTA channels you receive depend on what is in the guide information sent to your box for your zip code. I suspect the correct information for channel 13-2 is not being provided by the station to DIRECTV.RyMcQ said:After losing my DNS service last month, I finally tried to see what I could get in HD OTA. (Our local market is broadcast by DirecTV in HD, but the HD signal doesn't hit my community because the signal footprint is too small. The SD channels are fine.)
It turns out that I can get CBS, ABC, FOX, and PBS in HD OTA. The channels look great when I run the cable directly into my Sony LCD. When I use the tuner on the HR20-100, I get good signal strengths for all of these channels, but some subchannels don't come through.
For example, I get 4-1 and 13-1, but not 4-2 or 13-2, even though both show the same signal strength and both come through fine when I plug the antenna directly into my Sony LCD. 13-2 is the HD signal for the FOX affiliate and is the signal I'm most concerned about.
Any clues on this? I am in 84790 (St. George, UT) part of the Salt Lake City market.
