Local Channels

I live half way between Harrisburg, PA and Baltimore, MD. My installer put me in to receive Harrisburg local channels. Obviously, this is not ideal because Baltimore has HD local channels. Is there a way to change this without too much effort?

No Harrisburg local channels to Franklin County, PA

I live in Franklin County Pennsylvania. In 2004-2005 Nielsen Media Research moved Franklin County from the Washington DC DMA to the Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon-York DMA. However, DIRECTV is still serving Franklin County with Washington DC local channels. How can I get DIRECTV to address this issue?

Why not use Ch 1000 to begin, I went there and now know where all the movies are, although it seems the better ones cost money, for example, Air Force One with Harrison Ford is a 1997 movie and costs $3. Anyway, I found the locations so thanks.

How do I connect to internet (and why?)

Still trying to figure out my R21 HD pkg, I had R10 for 8 yrs but CRT died so I have 32: Samsung. Now, how can I connect to the internet and what exactly do I get? Can I browse and more importantly can I connect to my Netflix account? Also why don't I get email notification even if I click the box?

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.

Local OTA Channel

I cannot receive channel 8.1 in Harrisburg VIA OTA. Up until a week ago I could and I didn't do anything to change that. When I check the signal strength I am receiving 58-65% which is good. I can receive all of the other OTA channel. I have already done a reset and that didn't change anything! Help
