Can anyone in the Phoenix area get channel 45-1? I can't, in SE
Chandler, nor can my dealer at I-10 and Ray, which is almost in spitting
distance of South Mountain.

It is the only thing keeping me from dropping locals from my DirecTV
subscription.

Are you talking about UPN?

http://www.titantv.com/ lists it as being channel 26, but I get
it on channel 18 (I'm near Paradise Valley Mall).

I have a Samsung SIRT-151 with an antenna on my roof.

For a while I was even getting channels 4 (NBC) & 13 (CBS) out of
Tucson.

Yes.

I can't get 26-1 or 26-2, nor the channel guide for either.

Here is where things get weird. I can't get 45-1 (Phoenix UPN), but I
get its channel guide. I can get 18-1 (Tucson UPN), but I can't get its
channel guide.

<later>

However, by adding Tucson as my secondary area for OTA reception, and
rescanning for OTA channels, I now have its channel guide as well.
Thanks.

Interesting. My antenna is aimed at South Mountain, according to the
installer. (It's in the attic, and I haven't seen it.) I can't get
26-1 or 26-2, but I can get 18-1, which is a Tucson station.

Curiously, although I now have the guide for 18-1, it doesn't show up in
the "Search by Title" function. But I just realized that it might take
a bit of time for it to populate like when a new receiver is attached.
I'll keep checking it over the next few days.

I'm in Cooper Commons, BTW, at Riggs and Gilbert.

I did not realize 18 was out of Tucson.

FWIW, I was able to get 26 for a while a few months ago. It was
a very weak signal with a lot of drop outs. Now I don't receive
it at all. :-(

Thanks for the heads up; I found almost the same thing after reading
your message. The only difference is that I don't see 45.2 anywhere. I
just changed my season passes from 26.1 to 45.1
