I am only getting two local channels. Channel 25 and 64 I want to check signal strength of satellite transponders that they are broadcast from. What satellite transponders does Cincinnati locals come from?

Using zip code 45201, your locals are coming off of a 101 degree satellite.

Do you have HD service?

What do you mean by "only getting"? What happens if you tune to the others? Are you actually located in Cincinnati, or are you somewhere else trying to get the locals?
The SD locals come from TP12 on 101.

I get the banner only on the other channels. Black screen when banner goes off. Channel 25 and 64 work good.

Are you sure you don't have some setting off? Possibly have the guide set on that receiver to "Hide HD Channels"?

The guide works good, I get a black screen on all channels except 25 and 64.

So you have an old TiVo. What is the software version of that TiVO?
10-09-2013 4:40 PM
What is the software version of that TiVO? 6.1-01-2-521

A while ago (about a little more than a year) DirecTV changed something on the guide data that affected the TiVOs. the fix was to get version 6.4a. now the question is if that software is on the stream to download. I let the other shine on that, but until you get 6.4a, you will not get local channels.
