What do you mean by "as an antenna won't work in my situation?"

Your options are cable FIOS or satellite.
Satellite is a closed system -- you use their equipment.

Cable & FIOS can be used with 3rd party cablecard devices. You rent the cablecard from your provider and pay any additional fees they will charge you for having an extra device on their line and HD fees etc.
  • TiVo is the only 3rd party stand alone DVR on the market with cable card support.
  • Your second option is to build/buy a HTPC with a cablecard tuner (Silicon Dust or Ceton) and running Windows Media Center as your DVR software. WMC is your only option because it is currently the only DVR software that supports the DRM required for cablecard certification.

Without OTA your options are very limited.

Remote Issue For Loyldsocal

It may be as simple as your remote could be having problems communicating if you have your DVR+ close to the TV's IR receiver and the TV picture settings are on for automatically adjusting the picture according to the room lighting.

Try looking at your TV settings as the issue and the location of your DVR+ relative to your TV's IR sensors.

A simple change to settings may be all you need.
