Q1 -- is it DirecTV that has blown it with 53217 for the OTA stuff -- maybe that Zip Code is not in their database?

Q2 -- each receiver mapped slightly differently -- one or another picked up a minor, or fringe channel that I never even heard of, even though all three got all the real major locals. Any logical explanation?
Q1: Could be, or it is the data provider. In any case I would not worry too much about it, there are way more zipcodes than DMAs so I am sure there are a few glitches out there and luckily you can just enter a nearby zip.

Q2: Could be the minor differences in how good the tuners are. Some might pickup weaker signals better than the others.
