dta service

dta service

my hdtv installed on dta upstairs was receiving only limited channels compared to my hdtv located downstairs - to check to see if due to dta or location i moved the dta from the downstairs tv upstairs and found that i could not get any channels - when i reinstalled the dta downstairs i could not get any channels -  how do i restore service downstairs and get full service upstairs???


the hdtv located on the cable box is unaffected

Re: dta service

DTAs usually only receive up to the Digital Starter tier of channels. Anything above that tier requires a full Set Top Box either HD or SD.

To try and get your DTA reset you could try calling the 800 number and there should be a phone prompt for sending a reset signal. Have the DTA plugged in for about 45 minutes before trying that. Or try this site

With the DTA on, I am able to hold "INFO" until a screen comes up with a lot of menu options.  One of those options brings up a screen that shows all of the channels that the DTA should be receiving (in my case it is app. 70 as I have Digital Starter in 80026).
