Now that channels like Sundance and WE are offering more syndicated series in HD (Law & Order, for example) it's frustrating that DirecTV is not providing these channels in HD. I have Charter HD in my office and the HD quality on Sundance and WE looks amazing. When I get home I don't watch those channels because the quality on DirecTV is so poor.

I tried uploading a picture of the error when trying to do a manual recording from a channel with no program data. In this case, I tried setting a manual record for M-F at 2-3:01p for the old series Dragnet on Antenna TV (15-3). Each day of last week ended up with this error in the recording history. The error message reads: "This showing was canceled because of an unexpe...

dcd, in this case that isn't true. I've tried it via pressing the record button while in the guide AND by using Menu -> Recordings -> Manage Recordings -> Manual Record. As I said earlier, because the channel has no actual guide data it also has no length of programming (zero length) and a manual record set through Menu -> Recordings -> Manage Recordings -> Manual Record ...

Texasbrit, trust me I tried everything for manual records, including start and end times. The Genie will not do a manual recording because the duration for REGULAR SCHEDULE is zero minutes - it doesn't matter what setting you use for a manual recording. In fact, while watching the channel if I hit the record button on the remote nothing happens. It simply will not record....

Actually, I followed rico7961's advise above and used a station in Miami as a secondary local. There IS guide data for shows through the AM-21 for Antenna TV - the programming source for both my local 15.3 and the Miami station at 39.3. This proves that the data is available and works with the AM-21, but my local station isn't providing it to DirecTV. Also, peds48, when R...

I'm getting 15.3 through my AM-21 connected to a Genie DVR. However, the channel has no program listings so we can watch the channel, but not record the channel. The guide just lists REGULAR SCHEDULE at all times.

Well, the developers at DirecTV need to understand that if they a). aren't going to carry ALL local stations on satellite, then they must b). include record possibility of ALL local channels in the mobile app. DirecTV sells the AM21 and it nicely incorporates ALL local channels into the guide. The mobile app should not have less capability.

I just added an AM21 over-the-air tuner to one of my HR-24's. The subchannels have been nicely integrated into the HR-24 guide, but I noticed that the additional OTA channels are NOT in the iPhone or iPad app. What gives?
