You may need to re aim your dish because you are having a low signal strength issue. Check for new tree growth in the line of site. If that won't help you can replace the current dish with a larger one. Say 18" to a 24" would give a lot more signal strength which will help with that kind of a problem.
Good luck

Sound on one channel from over the air antenna has suddenly become garbled. All others are fine.


If only one channel is affected it is not a problem usually with the set--it does not know what channel you are on---look in audio menu and make sure if set has SAP it is not on.

We lost local tv from Dish on one of the local channels. We want to use the TV (model LC-46D85U) to view the local channel. How do we get the TV to view in local over the air instead of the satellite. ...


Connect air antenna to RF(coax) input of tv. Go to the menu and look for channel setup.Select antenna and auto scan. When done scanning you should have whatever stations you are able to pickup. Connect Sat reciever to one of the other input on the tv. Then go to INPUT or SOURCE on remote and select tv for local and what ever input you sat box is connected to for dish.

Have Direct TV using a Sony Digital Satellite receiver model #SAT B2-2 /Sony Satellite dish purchased in 7/97. I get local channels thru Direct TV. Recently, local channels will show on the Direct TV guide...


Your dish is out of alignment. The local channel satellite doesn't have as strong of a signal, so a slight misalignment will cause problems.

It could also be an F-connector needs to be replaced at the dish or multiswitch (if you have one). Sometimes moisture builds up inside the connector and corrodes the copper stinger inside.

If you go into your satellite signal strength menu and find the local channel satellite, you're sure to see either a weak signal or an intermittent one.

One more thing, if a tree has grown in the line of sight between the dish and the satellite, this will cause signal problems too. In this case, you either have to trim the tree or move the dish.

Hope this helps!

P.S.
The customer service reps at DirecTV usually idiots reading from a script with no real field experience.

I get poor recption on digital convertor box while watching satellite. But works fine for viewing local channels. JT


Digital converterboxes will down-convert all signals to 480p at best.  No converter box should be used with the satellite signal only antennas.

No local channels


your locals may be broadcasted on a a different satellite (directv uses 7 different ones). when u travel, your dish on your rv might be capable of receiving the satellite that broadcasts normal programming. the dish on your home may look a little different and picks up more than one of the satellite signals. also these satellites are in different locations

How to see local channels in HD with a traditional antenna?


If your set does not have an ATSC tuner, for HD, then you need to be using a suitably equipped STB.

Your satellite STB - box - should take in OTA channels and display them as part of its normal operation, tho. It takes in the antenna signal from your roof antenna and displays the HD version of your OTA channels, if it is an HD STB, along with the HD channels it gets from the satellite overhead.
