I just picked up a Samsung SIR-TSW160 HDTV DirecTV receiver. I don't have the dish up yet and was wondering if it's still possible to get the local channels. I can't get past the "Finding satellite failed" message. It would be nice to watch locals in HD, but I'm stuck, and the manaual is no help.

That is a tough one... took me forever to get past that. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact details on how I finally ended up getting OTA set up before I got the satellite input connected, but I do remember one thing: there's a part where you tell it what kind of dish you have (round, oval, etc.) in one of the setup screens. If you actually go in to that, "none" is another option.

OK, I got it. It requires the access card to be inserted (although it never gave me such a message). Thanks for the help Darin.
