You should have posted this in the hardware reception forum or the Bethelem locals thread. But did RCN install the Motorola DVR or did you pick it up at the office? Did you have a digital STB before? Maybe RCN needs to activate the digital channels. But you probably need to wait for the RCN tech to come out.


Your Sony should have an ATSC tuner. Hook up an antenna for Over the Air digital reception of your local stations. Check the OTA reception FAQ sticky in the hardware reception forum for the basic info.
