I did search for a few minutes, but ran out of time. If this is already covered, please pardon and provide reference pointer.

I have a 921, and I am currently feeding it OTA signals from a crappy indoor amplified antenna (loop+dipoles). Since I only live 15-20 miles from the broadcast towers, this usually does the trick. I do plan on installing a BIG antenna *in* my attic, or on my roof if the attic ends up not working...but for now, I just have the standard amplified indoor antennna that you see everywhere, anymore.

Now then, even so, I live in the Dayton, OH area, and I can pickup digital channels 18,26,30,41,50,51,58. Usually, I can also pick up 16, but not for the last 2 days...maybe they're working on it again, since it's only been up about 3 months?

At any rate, I think 18 is remapped to 02, but I'm not sure. And, I am getting at least average of 80 signal strength on all of these channels, with some averaging around 100!
I can watch 2,26,41,51 (ABC, WB, CBS, NBC) - so, that's good.
But, I cannot see 18, 30, 50, 58. One of these is mapped to 02. The other three have plenty of signal strength, and don't show up anywhere in my lineup, and I have no idea why.

I did have all of these channels added in at one time...then I deleted them all and re-added, in several different sessions. Also, when I originally had all the OTA channels, I had Analog channels in my lineup as well. When I re-added, I added ONLY Digital.

Otherwise, I have no additional useful details. Anyone else seeing this kind of problem with Digital OTA?

Thanks,
-NICK

The digital OTA non reception is a well known problem. I was just bitching about the Oscars going to the aquiring signal screen last night on another thread.

Lets hope they nail this down with the next software update.
