    My S3 is up and running with 2 Cable Cards and an OTA antenna. Everything is working great except for the fact that I'm missing a handful of my OTA HD stations as being available to me. If I do a channel scan they show up and the signal strength is fine, but if I add them to my "Channels you Receive" list I never get the actual guide information for them.

    If it helps I live in Winchester, VA (22601) and the channels that I'm missing are:

    4-1 Washington DC NBC affiliate
    5-1 Washington DC FOX affiliate
    50-1 Washington DC WB/CW affiliate

    Is there anyway that I can manually map the channels to a specific stations guide information?

    Thanks
    Bill

    Maybe you should put in a line-up service request on tivo.com, they might not have the correct information?

    Are these channels in your normal DMA, or do you get NBC etc via a VA affiliate as well?

    I assume you get both. They probably just need to add that guide data to what might be seen from your zip.

    The washington affiliates are my local stations. I'll put a request in at tivo.com, I wasn't aware that they had such an option.

    Thanks

    Perhaps try a different area code to see if it makes a difference? Try 20016, 22205, 22207, or 22213.

    I was under the impression that you couldn't use OTA with Cable cards.
