    With the addition of many new channels lately, the Channels I Get Bug has once again gotten out of hand everywhere (not that it was ever completely fixed). We will use this thread to collect data to send DirecTV about channels I get issues.

    Please post the following INFO:

    1. Your actual channel package, and if you subscribe to anything else as well, like the Sports Package, HBO, etc, in addition to your main package.

    2. The channels showing in your guide when you have your guide set to Channels I Get, that you don’t actually get in your package.

    Please do not use this thread for any discussion. Please only post the requested information. Thanks!!!!

    also MLB EI and MLS DK that are mostly RSN remaps are just as messed up.

    UEFA, La Liga and Rugby is free to all

    499 is part time and may be mapped to a open to all D* holding screen when off air.

    Thanks for doing this I brought up this "channels I get" issue after they added the second wave of Cinemax HD's in another thread and got pounded with replies saying just set up a custom list, etc.

    I have Choice Xtra+HD DVR + Locals + Sports Pack

    Channels I Get guide online looks to be correct, but on the HR21-100, the guide also shows the channels in the HD EXTRA PACK - 560, 561, 562, 563, 564, 565, 566, 567, and 568. I have not looked at the guide on the H23-600 to see if those channels are listed there.

    NOTE #1: I'm not aware of if there's anyway to use CIG with OnDemand channels, but if case there is, I listed them.

    NOTE #2: Some of the UEFA channels with programming were coming in, but 483 and 483-1 were giving me a 721 error. 483-1 was properly showing up as a Channel I DON'T Get, but 483 was showing up as a CIG. Not all channels had programming on it, so I'm not sure how many of them were correct.

    NOTE #3: I'm also slightly confused when it comes to some of the non-labeled RSN Alternate channels in the 600s, so I included all of them.

    I have the Total Choice Package(Grandfathered in). This package wasn't asked for this time, but has been in past threads...

    My zipcode is 36582(That should help with the sports channels).
    I didn't check the VOD channels. Sonic Music Channels didn't have any issues. Last go around on the fixes resolved many of issues in the 200-500.

    I see Extra innings Channels even though I don't subscribe. I'm sure the Sunday Ticket and League Pass Channels need to be looked at too when those seasons begin

    I don't see why people are listing UEFA 480-(485-1) (I thing at least some of UEFA is open to all) include all the -1s
    Rugby 490 and 490-1 when they are open to all.

    Also some of the part time channels / 700s that are off air are tuning in and go the D* holding screen. So that may tie into the messed up Channels I get.

    As for the RSN's may have to with all the black out rules.

    The other sports pack channels like the 617 FCS, ECL, mtn and mtn HD (part time) are greaed out. also some of the big ten SD alt channels are greaed out right now. Need to check when they start to get used.

    BabyFirst TV is now correctly showing up as a Channel I DON'T Get.

    Everyone might want to check and see and update their lists if it's now corrected.

    ... not that several lists on this page are acurate... :rolleyes:

    I do not subscribe to the premium movie channels such as HBO, etc. but everytime there is a free preview weekend or other promo, these channels will stay in the guide even though I only have channels I get enabled.

    Is there a fix?

    Thx.
