    I have a hr44/am21 -- was on a few years back getting setup info. Had a dickens of a time with the WUNC PBS channels hanging the am21 scan. Seems that has been resolved, as a recent scan (to get cozi tv on 5.2) worked just fine.

    However I see from seaching around that 22.4 in raleigh is broadcasting Antenna TV, but my scan did not pick up the 22.x sub-channels. I did not use a secondary zip, just Raleigh. Should I try a secondary zip? And what should it be to get the 22.x sub-channels? They are on RF27, i.e.

    WLFL RALEIGH, NC
    22-1 27.3 WLFL-HD CW "CW 22"
    22-2 27.4 Stadium Stadium
    22-3 27.5 TBD TBD
    22-4 27.6 Antenna Antenna TV

    Many thanks,
    Scott.

    The AM21 doesn't do true scans. Only those sub-channels that are in DirecTV's database will show up.
    Using a secondary zip helps but the data wouldn't necessarily be correct.

    By running Seattle WA (98101) it will give you 22.2 and 22.3 KZJO from Seattle. With an ANTENNA TV guide on 22.3. Then run MPLS/STP (55401) to get 22.4 into you DVR. You have to run 2 secondary zips to get an Antenna TV guide on 22.3 and to get 22.4 to show up on your DVR/AM21. But this is the best you can do to get Antenna TV and a guide into your DVR/AM21.
