Just got my Z2 today, I have a zenith HDV420 for OTA HD. My question is, do I not get the channels unless they are currently broadcasting HD material? ie, at 5 in the afternoon, the only channels that came in were cbs and pbs. Is that all I will get?
That receiver will only recieve local digital channels, won't tune analog signals. It will receive the digital channels whether they're actually broadcasting HD or not.
The digital counterparts of analog channels almost all broadcast the same hours and schedule as the analog versions.
So if your local CBS and PBS stations are the only ones in your area with digital signals, that's all your going to get. There may be others you aren't getting because you don't have a good enough antenna.
I'm not familiar with your area, as I live in CA. Perhaps you could post a new thread asking what channels you should be able to get from College Station or check at Titan TV.
