    Hello,

    I can't be upset because we have a lot of satellite HD for this market.

    A few corrections...

    13-00 KCOP LOS ANGELES, CA (MYTV) - 8005 SD 119° 3sB03 A

    is also in HD on 6317.

    28-00 KCET LOS ANGELES, CA (PBS) - 8006 SD 119° 3sB03 A 6314 HD 129° 6s33 A

    is no longer PBS, but an independent non-profit now (this is also incorrect on Dish website, but this is an interesting one because it was the biggest LA PBS when Dish was doing the PBS HD adds). So, it got added.

    Interestingly, Dish network is missing KMEX in HD on their website even though they offer it. Not sure why.

    James... An update for your local channel list:
    KDTV 14 and KFSF 66 locals in San Francisco are now in HD. Still no KQED HD though.

    Sorry for the delay in updating (last update was Feb 15th). Everything should be right based on the last uplink activity.

    A little help for a DishNetwork newb here;), I'm just trying to decode the listings. For instance on the below:

    5-00 KRGV WESLACO, TX (ABC) - 7655 SD 110° 29s17 A 5260 HD 129° 4s52 A

    This shows:
    KRGV Weslaco, OTA channel 5
    Dish SD Channel 7655 on 110, transponder 29, spotbeam 17
    Dish HD Channel 5260 on 129, transponder 4, spotbeam 52
    both signals available

    Am I close?

    And if so, where could I find maps of 110 and 129 so I can see how far north those two spotbeams go?

    thanks!

    One nit to pick - Abilene Texas is spelled with an "ene" not "ine".

    I have a question about local channel selection. We live about .1 miles over the town line which changes our locals from Boston to Vermont. DirectTV was able to give me Boston locals, partially based on our billing address zip code which is in the next town (in Boston Local market).

    I signed up for DISH today and was told that the installer would be able to give me Boston locals as long as he could hit the spot beam (??) for them.

    Can anyone confirm that this is true? I fear that I was told that in order to get me to pull the trigger.

    Enter your zip code to see what Locals you are eligible for. Dish Network can only provide locals for the DMA that your zip code is assigned to. It does not always make sense but it is what it is.

    That's what I initially thought. I know that DirectTV was able to make an exception and the Comcast will also, after you fill in the proper forms (waivers) from the local stations involved.

    What is most disappointing is that the salesman I was working with told me that it was possible, after I explained to him that not having Boston locals was a show stopper.

    What if you are missing local guide data for an over the air channel?
    I also confirmed it is missing form the chart on post #1.
    Is there an email address where you can request that they add it?

    You can ask ... but the expectation that DISH will admit that they provide EPG for OTA channels is low - let alone provide correct EPG.

    The DISH channels in the 14000 range are not real channels ... they are there to provide EPG listings for the subchannels. If you could tune to one of those 14000 channels you would find nothing there. But the information in the EPG for that channel can be mapped to your locally received -01/-02/-03 etc channels (assuming you have an OTA tuner and can receive the channel OTA).
