Unable to receive local HD channels

VitoA

I just switched my local area channels to zip code 93560, (Los Angeles).
I unplugged the receiver and plugged it back in and let it download the new programming information.
I'm unable to receive ABC, CBS, NBC or any of the local channels in HD.
When I try to select a local HD channel, it says its unavailable and automatically switches to the SD version of the same channel.
All of the other HD channels seem to work fine.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

It sounds like you "moved", and you're not really within the area of the spot beam.

Are the locals the only ones you're having issues with HD/SD revert?

What's the model number/word on the front left of your box?

Possibly an aiming issue with your dish is preventing your receiver from "seeing" the 129 satellite where the HD locals are.

I ran a switch check and all three satellites are coming in.

What is the 129 sat's signal strength?

129 Sat signal strength varies from 42-58.  Some of the lower transponder channels do not have any signal.
