I am still having a problem getting the Philadelphia mappings. I reset the box 3 times and after the channels relist I still get the NY listings. Could there be something wrong with my box?
Hi SeanSean Mota said:It is possible because the mapping was changed. You can ask V* to send a hit signal to the Box wait 45 minutes and if still nothing do a factory reset to see what happens.
need purple range antenna which I tried cm 4228 with amp and nothing for channels listed which is wilkes barre, pa, about 40 miles from towers, but we live in valley with mountain is front of view of towers, so I have given up unless they come out with different antenna, or solution from VOOM thinking about asking d or e about just local hdtv channel package, don't know if they do that? any help thereIlya said:

Just a quick question concerning local ota I have tried several antenna and no signal, just wondering if you know or anyone out there is D or E available just for the local channels hd and nothing else,may be a solution for some of us thanks

I live near chicago, and pull in all HD channels(besides channel 2 WBBM, which is hard to get) using a MYHD card. My V* box for some reason will not get UPN (channel 50, WPWR). I have good reception on all other channels, and it is one of the strongest signals picked up by my MYHD card. I have done two factory resets with the same results each time, which is a "No Signal Received on local channel 50-1. Please try again later." Any advice?

The installer mounted the OTA on the west side of my house but it's pointing east thus aiming more towards my roof tiles than air. (Hope this is clear!)
All the towers are maximum of 12 miles from my house due east. I get OTA signal power of only 29 but quality is 64-66
I have a signal on only 8 of 12 channels that are mapped on my PG. I haven't done a Factory reset yet, but something tells me that this antenna pointing at my roof is the culprit.
truqui said:Anyway is there a certain signal width/angle that the OTA can handle. Or is it straight at it?
truqui said:Bill, it's a CM Stealth antenna, not sure if it's amplified. How do I know? I do know that the installer did plug something into an outlet in my garage which I think goes to a diplexer?
I'll try to post a picture of how the antenna is pointed. It is definately pointing towards my roof...
truqui said:I am going to make some adjustments to my OTA to see if I can get the channels I currently have mapped but no signal. The installer pointed it toward my roof so I want to aim it higher up to see what gives.
Any precautions I should take other than not falling off the ladder? :shocked
Is there anything I should be aware of before I do this?
Thanks in advance for your comments!!!
