Local Channels

Took my reciever to my Southern Home for the Winter. Can you turn on my local channels without a service call or without talking for two hours on the phone again with people that don't know what their doing? 

THIS HAS BEEN DONE IN THE PAST IN FIVE MINUTES OVER THE PHONE.

Re: Local Channels

Once upon a time it was easy to call up DirecTV and temporarily change your "service address" when traveling so that you would receive the correct local station. But they don't do it any more.  If you want those local channels you'll need to use an off-air antenna connected to your TV.
