I been having problems witht he local HD Channels coming in, have always had probs with AMC, which frustrated my Walking Dead viewership. Now it's the HD Local channels. Is this a regional problem in Brandon area or something wrong with my boxes? I have tried all the troubleshooting.

Brandon? What city and state? What troubleshooting has been done so we can make sure all has been done? Is it happening on all boxes or just one?

I have been having the same problem for weeks, only on the local TV channels. I am in Pittsburgh.


WTAE, KDKA, WPCW, WPGH, WPXI and WQED are not working in HD. (They worked previously in HD, but suddenly quit)

When I change to SD the same channels are fine, and all my other HD channels are good. 

 

Very frustrating - almost all of the TV I watch is on my local CBS/NBC/ABC stations and I am paying to see them in HD. Repeated reset efforts have not worked.

Resetting the box will not fix this because it's almost always a signaling issue. Please unscrew the coax from the wall to the back of the box for 30 seconds. Make sure the coax tips are straight and free from oxidation.
