I have tried several different ways of doing it but no mater what I do my 921 will not record local DTV 6-1 or 8-1. I can record 2-1, 23-1, 42-1 without any problems. 6-1 and 8-1 are over 100 on the signal strength meter. Here is a weird thing. Before L1.45 any timer I programmed for 6-1 would record channel 262 (Angle). The first couple of times I couldn't figure out why. Then I was looking at the timer screen (option 7 on the main menu). If I select a timer on that screen none of the local digital channels show the correct channel. They all map to a channel in the 200's.
2-1 maps to 258
6-1 maps to 262
8-1 maps to 264
23-1 maps to 279
41-1 maps to 297

I wonder since these channels (262 is angle, 264 is wisdom ) are real channles if this is why I cannot use timer events on them. If look at the timer from the DVR button they show the correct channels (6-1, 8-1, etc.).

With L1.42 it would record the 262 channel, with L1.45 it doesn't record anything. All recordings from 6-1 and 8-1 end up 0 seconds. The light comes on during the recording. If you try to view the recording while it is in progress it will take you to the live channel (correct one) but you cannot skip forward or back.

Another odd deal with 6-1 and 8-1 is on the timer channel selection screen. They both show up twice. Both of these channels have sub channels, but 6-2 and 8-2 are in the selection already.
