    I get guide data on all digitals from Sacramento except for one. It is:

    KOVR RF=25 PSIP-remap=13 Network=CBS Local DMA

    13-1 (HD) shows "Digital Service"
    13-2 (SD mirror of analog programming) shows guide data

    I have a 942.

    Thanks for your help

    I live just outside Chattanooga and do subscribe to the Dish Locals.

    I receive the following OTA digital broadcast signals (ALL from Local DMA):

    NBC WRCB 3 - PSIP 13.1 - Guide data is present - 90% reception signal
    ABC WTVC 9 - PSIP 35.1 - Guide data is present - 95% reception signal
    CBS WDEF 12 - PSIP 47.1 - Guide data is present - 90% reception signal
    WB WFLI 53 - PSIP 42.1 - Guide data is NOT present - 85% reception signal
    FOX WDSI 61 - not broadcasting in high def and have no plans to do so :mad:

    I see the exact same thing with CBS KOVR on my 811 here in Sacramento. I don't own a 942.

    1.) Electronic guide data for KVIE PBS channel 6 and subchannels is incorrect and/or missing.

    2.) Electronic guide data for KOVR CBS channel 13 is listed only for the subchannel.

    -------------------------------

    *denotes guide data missing from EPG. guide displays "Local Digital" for all timeslots for this channel.

    #denotes guide data listed on wrong channel.

    6am to 6pm
    *06-01: KVIE Channel 6 (same as dish channel 8636)
    #06-02: KVIE Cable Channel 7 (EPG displays guide data for KVIE Channel 6)
    *06-03: PBS Kids
    *06-04: PBS You (same as dish channel 9402)

    6pm to 6am
    *06-01: PBS National High Def
    #06-02: KVIE Cable Channel 7 (EPG displays guide data for KVIE Channel 6 which doesn't exist from 6pm to 6am)
    06-03: Off Air (channel removed)
    06-04: Off Air (channel removed)

    *13-01: CBS KOVR Channel 13 (High Def) [same as dish channel 8631]
    13-02: CBS KOVR Channel 13 (Standard Def mirror of 13-01) [same as dish channel 8631]

    Note that on the 811, 6.1 and 6.2 get mapped to 53.1 (UHF) and 53.2 when watching them from 6pm to 6am. This problem exists with Sony, Echostar, and some other receivers. Tobar, do you see the same problem on your 942?

    Also note that I subscribe to all Sacramento LiL channels from Dish. All of these channels are carried by Dish, except for PBS Kids and PBS HD (national feed).

    Sorry Logray for not mentioning KVIE Ch 6. I was looking at one of my pre-made channel guides and forgot about that channel. It became such a pain trying to guess what was showing and when. Also I didn't mention that 13.02 SD seems to be an hour ahead during certain HD broadcasts. Confusing

    So Tobar, that means you are seeing the same issues with KVIE, or you haven't tested that yet?

    According to the station manager at KOVR, the hour ahead issue (early primetime) is going to be fixed shortly when all brand new broadcasting equipment goes in at the station. There is a good thread on this subject (and other SAC OTA issues) over at this link.

    This problem is not receiver specific. The problem exists on 942, 921, and 811. Anyone else out there with other recievers having this problem?

    Just noticed tonight that my program guide is finally correct for my local CBS station. It had been listing a guide for KGO, an ABC affilliate in the San Francisco Bay area. Now all I have to get is the guide for my local PBS station and all will be well.. Thanks Mark and Dish Network.. Hopefully it will remain OK..

    --------------------------------------
    Any idea on when they will start broadcasting the WB guide information for WFLI-53? Also, guide data is only present for the "01" channel. The "02" and higher channels all state "digital service." This is not that big a deal, but lack of WB53 HD Guide info is a big deal. Whose problem is this? I can call the local station, but it seems to me that it is probably a mapping issue in a database table for E*. So, E*, if you are reading this, please fix my problem! Thank you.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that as of this morning, I now have program guide information for NBC. I did not watch TV at all yesterday, so I have no idea when they fixed it but I am very glad that they did:)

    Now all that is missing is guide info for the digital PBS and the subchannels for all of my locals. I can definitely live without the subchannels, but I would like guide info for the PBS channel.

    Hi,

    I am receiving Boston area stations OTA. I only receive guide data for those stations that are included in my Dish local programming. I assume that when I drop the local programming that the guide data will go away.

    WGBH 002-02 SS: 90 "Digital Service"

    WCVB 005-01 SS: 97 Have guide data, station is included in local programming.

    WCVB 005-02 SS: 97 "Digital Service"

    WHDH 007-01 SS: 90 Have guide data, station is included in local programming.

    Mark, the problem is getting worse--not better. Any word on if/when they are planning to address this? I am now missing WTVC (ABC) 009-01 Guide data in addition to WFLI (WB) 053-01.

    Guys--did this topic just die? Am I the only one out there who still has problems?

    :)

    Incidentally, I am only missing WFLI-53 HD Guide data (and all of the -02 SD guide data for all of my stations) now. I posted WFLI's contact information in an earlier post and then sent them a note asking them to work with E* on the issue. No activity that I can see has occurred on either front.

    Does anyone from Dish read this thread????

    I know I've given up on a solution. I'm more worried about the missed recordings I've been experiencing from the latest upgrade!
