I'll have to check this when I get home tonight.

I last tested on Sunday. Using the Windows utility, I get a strong
signal on VHF channel numbers -- WBBM's channel 2, for example, gives
me around 90 percent signal strength but no lock and no reception
through the HDHR.

I'll take a closer look this evening and see what I can find.
