    17.1, 17.2, 13.1, 13.2 OTA...WTF?

    Ok...So 13 and 17 did the switchover last night. I have DirecTV with an OTA antenna plugged in. I, of course, still get the digital channels through DTV, but I no longer receive them via my OTA antenna. WTF?

    I still get ABC, CBS, and PBS OTA digitals, but they have made the switch yet (complying with delay).

    I thought I read somewhere that when the switch was made that the OTA signal type was going to change and it might be a problem if you don't have the right type of antenna.

    Anyone know anything about this? Is anyone with DirecTV and and OTA antenna going through the DTV box still getting the digitals for NBC and FOX via the antenna?

    Just to clarify, I have a HDTV Ready television so I can't hook the antenna directly to the TV and get the digitals. The antenna goes through my HD DVR.

    Rescan! That is what they said to do last night on the news.

    Reboot your tuner so it can rescan. I will check my HR21s out when I get home.

    It will make the difference if their permanent HD channels are on different frequencies than the transition channels were on...

    Re: 17.1, 17.2, 13.1, 13.2 OTA...WTF?

    I thought we went through this with the OSU - ISU FB game for 5.2. The DTV HR boxes do not reall "scan" the frequencies...they poll from a database of channels that is kept by some 3rd party that DTV contracts.

    Anyone remember this discussion?
