Either add an AM21 box to your DirecTV box (integrates partial OTA channel guides into the D* guide) or add an external DVR. Basic DVR boxes start around $35 plus your USB hard drive.

2 different tuners, one in the TV gets it, the other doesn't. The signal might be just good enough for the TV tuner, but just below what the tuner in the AM21 wants.
