    How to watch the game on Direct TV

    On your HD DVR or HD tuner, go to Menu, setup, system setup, satellite & antenna, antenna setup, initial setup, and enter your zip code as your primary local market. The receiver will then search for your local channels which will not include 5.2. After that, go to "add secondary market", enter zip code 90210, and the receiver will then search for local channels in Los Angeles, one of which is 5.2. Go to your programming guide and 5.2 will show up as KTLA, but when you tune it in you will receive WOI.

    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    If this is true, then I was right in assuming that it is a DTV hardware bug. My Dish VIP722 has shown 5.2 for months.

    Wow, nerdly! I will give this a shot, I never thought about adding a different local market.

    It is because DTV does not recognize 5.2 as a valid channel.

    It's a Directv bug but I don't think it's hardware. I think it's because 5.2 is not in their database of local channels for central Iowa. When Directv adds locals to it's receiver it adds them from a database of locals that it thinks are available instead of scanning for what signals the antenna can receive.

    Re: How to watch the game on Direct TV

    I don't see "antenna setup" as an option on my HD tuner system setup menu. Any ideas?

    Re: How to watch the game on Direct TV

    And you have an OTA antenna connected?

    Mine is a HR20-700S. The setup might be a bit different between the HD and HD-DVRs?

    Re: How to watch the game on Direct TV

    Monty's directions were right on for my receiver.

    After doing the initial setup under 50325, it prompted me for a secondary market.
