Are you suggesting that my receiver would be unaware of a channel I should receive? I would be very surprised to find that an unconfigured "Channels I Receive" is a partial list of channels, and that there are others I should add. I'm not saying it's not true, I just find it very hard to believe that my programming provider (DirecTV) wouldn't notify my receiver of all available channels.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm suggesting. You'd think it would work the way you describe, and it DOES work that way on non-TiVo DirecTV receivers, but not on the DTiVos. Instead you get a "default" selection of channels that has no logic to it that I can see - it includes a bunch of channels that many people, even those on Platinum, would not be eligible for and leaves unchecked some that most do get.
