View Full Version : Quick Newbie Question about Locals

11-11-2003, 11:13 AM
I have a DTivo DSR6000 with 3.1 and a turbonet card with bash and ftp. I am wondering about locals and have been reading several posts about them. I know that the best way is to get 2.5.2 Xtreme and use the remote control for them. So I will do that if I must, but I do have one question before I start the process. I am wondering if locals aren't available in my area Springfield, MO, can I still pull locals from another area? All I really want is to be able to watch some sports and record them if I am not there. Is that possible by installing locals and just changing mvchannels to Dallas or some other city in my time zone? Any suggestions would be very helpful.

You can only get locals within your spot beam and only the ones specified for your region with a legitimate DTV sub. Getting them through other means is not a topic for discussion here.
