Do u sub to locals? the digital feeds are much easier to get with antenna than the normal SD feeds.

If u sub to locals they should be there, call DTV.

If u don't sub to locals, ur having antenna issues of some sort?? Give more info on ur other sets please.

The H-20 only displays digital stations OTA.

Try rescanning the OTA signals again into the guide.

Again the H-20 does not display analog OTA.

Not sure why anyone would want analog anyway, unless they are concerned with burnout if a program isn't in HD.

I don't think the OP is worried too much about it. It 's just that the analog stations show up on the older recevers while using OTA. He was just wondering where they went is all. The H-20 does not have an NTSC tuner so it can't diplay those stations.

This is correct, not sure why no one is seeing this ...

Analog is the only way for me to get Channel 9 out of Canada so I can watch Hockey night in Canada.....
Also in the begining, the digital signal was not always being broadcast, even now, some networks only broadcast in the "prime time " on the digital, not so much anymore, but it was the case for awhile, also I do not think all networks digital is required to be a FULL stregth until somewhere into the future.
