Persistant 771 error code for 3 weeks.

Only get a few channels functioning normally. No obvious pattern. For example can't get CNN-HD, ESPN, some local stations. Can pick up CNN International, occassionlly FOX and MSNBC Have tried all the usual fixes and reprogrammed set but to no avail. Find tech help on the phone impossible to get to.

USPS Zip Code Change - No Locals - 75036

The USPS recently changed my zip code from 75034 to 75036.  The street address is still the same.  DirecTV says they cannot give me local channels at this address.  However, the FCC website says locals are available.  Any ideas how to get DirecTV to refresh their USPS & FCC feed? https://www.fcc.gov
