hanknjoycew Posted April 25, 2018 Report Share Posted April 25, 2018 Direct TV agreed a week ago to give me local channels in Fort Wayne IN where I am for a month because they have not been able to get the DNS network channels working (I have an existing waiver on file). I have a Winegard 9005 auto search unit with an older DTV HD equipment suite (HR24 DVR and on add'l HD Receiver). I then noticed no "asterisk" on Ch 119 (no lock-on?) and..no locals or DNS coming up. So I assumed maybe the 119 problem caused no Local and DNS. So I called DTV today to check and the tech spt guy said I needed an MPEG HD box to get locals where I am (??!!) and then said I needed the same box to get DNS channels in the 389-399 range. I have talked to at least 20 DTV techs in the past 2 weeks and nobody (including a supervisor) said anything about additional hardware. I had Locals when I reactivated my sytem 2 weeks ago in Custer SD so am mystified. Is this DTV guy pulling my chain or do I really need more hardware to get Locals and DNS?
