    I know this thread is getting old, but I just wanted to update the info in case Dish is looking for more details on the issue.

    Omaha Guide Data Missing. OTA DTV Channels with NO guide data at all
    ==================================

    Nebraska PBS Lincoln NE (all HD and Digital OTA chanels 12-1,12-2,12-3,12-5 )

    Nebraska PBS Omaha NE (all HD and Digital OTA chanels 26-1,26-2,26,-5_)

    OMaha UPN (6-2)

    Lincoln UPN (10-2)

    IOWA PBS (36-1 36-2 and 32-1 32-2)



    I can see missing some PBS channels, but NO guide data for UPN? Not acceptable.

    Try WCBS in NY! Let's see, the number 1 network in the number 1 DMA...

    FWIW, I get WCBS guide data on my 942 on channel 9483. You certainly should qualify for CBS-HD there in NY (do you have a dish pointing at 61.5?). I'm assuming WCBS-HD shows the same thing you'd be getting OTA on WCBS-DT.

    That doesn't help when you're trying to record the OTA channel via NBR.

    Isn't the national feed of WCBS-HD on 61.5? If someone is in NY but doesn't have 61.5 they can't get it. Besides we used too get the guide data for WCBS and UPN-9 but recent software updates took these away. One step forawrd and two steps back. Not heading in the right direction DISH!!!

    You got it backwards, ECBSHD is on 61.5. WCBSHD is on 148.

    WCBSHD is the east coast HD feed and is on 61.5

    But, again, I'm talking about the OTA feed, not the sat feed.

    Yes, I subscribe to my locals.
    I live in the Chattanooga, TN DMA.
    WFLI (WB) analog channel 53; digital channel 42
    PSIP 42.1 is the HD boradcast, and all I see is Digital Service for guide information.

    WCBS are the call letters for CBS out of NY. There is no such thing as ECBS. KCBS from Los Angeles is on the 148 bird.

    New Yorkers just lost guide data for WNBC-DT with the latest update that Mark said might help some people with their guide data. This was one day after my recent comments. You guys could all blame me with my criticism of how Dish was handling the situation! I sure did jinx us with my two steps back remark. I can now say THREE STEPS BACK! Thanks Dish for trying, but how about getting it right next time!

    Guess the last software upgrade fixed my local OTA problem!!! KTBC (FOX) in Austin now has guide data. I had to delete the local and re-add from the local channels setup screen, but when I did, eureka! It was there! Thanks Dish!

    Mark, just activated my 942 the other day so I wouldn't be stuck with a paperweight.
    My 921 shows guide data, so I was surprised and a little pissed off that my 942 doesn't.

    Fort Myers, FL
    Don't subscribe to Locals (Have NY and LA Distants)
    WZVN-DT 26.1 ABC NAPLES FL 41
    WTVK-DT 45.1 WB NAPLES FL 45
    WFTX-DT 36.1 FOX CAPE CORAL FL 35
    WBBH-DT 20.1 NBC FORT MYERS FL 15

    Is there any hope I'll get guide data like my 921?

    WFLI - WB53 (DT42) in Chattanooga TN has no OTA guide information. Every other OTA DT station in town has guide info but this one. It's been on the air in a DT format for over 6 months now.

    Hopefully they are still looking at correcting OTA info. The guide data that would be really beneficial is KTCA (PBS-HD) and KTCI (17.1-17.5). Some of the best HD I've seen has been on PBS-HD.

    Your location: Minneapolis/St. Paul
    Do you susbscribe to your Dish locals: Yes
    Station call letters, digital RF channel, PSIP remapped channel, network affiliation:
    KTCI-DT / 16 / 17.1 - KTCA (TPT2) - digital service; 17.2 - KTCI (TPT17) - guide data; 17.3 - TPTKids (PBSKids) - digital service; 17.4 - TPTYou (PBSYou) - digital service; 17.5 - TPTWx - digital service / PBS

    WFTC-DT / 21 / 29.1 - guide data; 29.2 - digital service / UPN

    KMWB-DT / 22 / 23.1 - guide data / WB

    KMSP-DT / 26 / 9.1 (720p) guide data; 9.2 (480i) - digital service / FOX

    WCCO-DT / 32 / 4.1 - guide data / CBS

    KTCA-DT / 34 / 2.1 - digital service / PBS-HD

    KARE-DT / 35 / 11.1 - guide data; 11.2 - WeatherPlus - digital service / NBC

    KPXM-DT / 40 / PSIP 41.1-41.4 -- digital service for all / PAX

    KSTC / 44 / 45.1 - guide data / Independent

    KSTP / 50 / 5.1 - guide data; 5.2 (mostly radar weather) - digital service / ABC

    This thread appears dead. I got a couple of PMs early on saying that Dish was working on the problem, but it's not improved for me. Once my local cable company picks up the last two local HD stations, I'm seriously considering dual DVR cards in a computer and leaving this satellite stuff. It's been cool technology when it works, but it's just so frustrating to spend the kind of money we've spent on equipment and then have it ignored and not supported.

    The worst part is that it wouldn't be too difficult for Dish to fix this. The D* boxes seem to do this just fine - why can't Dish????

    Received a 942 to replace my buggy 921 Firday. All of my local OTA HD channels are showing guide data except:

    WWOR (009-01)
    and
    WCBS (002-01)

    Both out of New York City and I do subscribe to New York locals from Dish.

    Anyone else having same issue? Makes using the guide for future recording useless and also name based recording for those channels.

    Same here. I also don't have guide data for WNET (13-1).
