Same symptoms here in Harrisburg PA local area. R15 receiver freezes as if using pause button. R11 receivers freeze and go black 3-7 secs. I reported to Tech Support 800 # and they had not heard of the problem. They're sending me a new R15 receiver,

Constant freezing/audio/video drops on locals.

So, this HR20-100 is a little over a week old now.Only issue I have had up until now, was some sort of interference on channel 32 (Fox). That seems to just be coming and going now. Just on Fox though.But today, I am sitting and watching the Simpsons and the picture just freezes for about 3 seconds,

The locals finder on the DirecTV web site lists two counties in zip 44695, Carroll Cty which says local are available, and Harrison Cty which says locals are not available. Not sure which (or both) is correct, but this could be part of your problem.

Recently added locals, but can't see them in the channel guide

Last night, frustrated by my inability to see the Indians beat the Red Sox on Fox, I changed our programming to a package that includes local channels. Two years ago, when we moved here, local channels were not an option, but now, apparently, they are. We have not been able to access any local chann

99 and 103 slots

Can anyone tell me if there are active transmissions from these sites. I have the HR20-100 receiver and when I do a signal test I get nothing from those sats. I live in the Harrisburg Pa area and we just began receiving HD locals in early April so I am assuming they are coming in from the 101 or 11

Time to learn how your Directv system works (though your profile sez you're already an installer?):The SWM is in the LNB at the end of the arm on your dish. It is powered by a 21vDC power inserter. (In the past the receivers provided the power.) From

LCCs not connected message, yet I use an AM21

The past month or so, I keep getting messages off and on that my setup doesn't see the installed Local Channel Connector (LCC) [LCCs not detected] which blocks me from watching OTA stations through my D* setup, however, interestingly, I've never had LCCs installed. Since late 2010, I've had an AM21
