thanks for the response guys. however i got lucky I recieved my
reciever and it had the access card installed and it works great !
I had no trouble at all setting it up. The only problem I'm having
with my ota is the same one I've been having for a while now.
sometimes the locals come in great (signal 96-100) then fade to
almost nothing for no reason. opnce I get that solved I'll be doing
great. any ideas?
