I had a similar problem. I did not choose a lineup on the
SchedulesDirect.org. Once I did so, everything worked great. Log in to
schedules direct and create a lineup. It will ask for your zip code, then
give a listing of possible proivders...over the air, cable company name,
direct tv, etc. Even if you think you did this, double check.
