    Wooh! if I got an email like that I would forward that email to the executive office of DISH www.ceo@dishnetwork.com just to see what kind of heat they would bring down to the originator of that email,you just don't talk to a customer that way!,remember you always have recourse,you just have to know how to use it.;):D

    Remember email the station manager too!.Good Luck!:)

    When I select that program guide from the website you said the program guide come up in English on my computer.

    I don't see anywhere in my receiver's Menu to change the EPG's language,there is a selection for alternate audio.You may have to use your computer to translate in English.Good Luck!:)

    I did some studying of the receiver's system information in the Main Menu you can select Language(it's in the pictures at the bottom),then hopefully you will be able to select English there for the EPG language.again Good Luck!:)

    Well that didn't last long now my MeTV information is showing just a summary of the program,nothing about the episode being shown.I have a feeling this has something to do with the networks lawsuits,even though my other OTA programming is showing episode information.:confused::confused:

    MeTV-43.6-Fresno-Visalia,CA.

    Nothing to do with lawsuits.

    This happens quite a bit on satellite channels too. All-too-often I see nights with generic "a show about a guy who ..." descriptions that then get replaced a day or two later when the EPG refreshes.

    For whatever reason, Dish sometimes doesn't get/put the right info.

    I lost the program details on MeTV 5.3 MSP two or three days ago. It's very annoying. :(

    I think the problem must be between MeTV and Tribune Media/TV Guide. :confused:

    You are correct! Mine has also. :D

    I would like to think that Ray C@Dish Network is the reason. I sent him a PM yesterday and he responded early this morning saying he had submitted a trouble report.

    Great going, Ray. Huray for the D.I.R.T. :hurah:

    Just installed the OTA module in my 722K yesterday, primarily for the sub-channels and the couple stations Dish doesn't carry in HD.

    I have info for:

    2.2, 2.3 & 2.4: all PBS
    5.3: MeTV
    5.4: Antenna TV
    11.2: Weather Now

    Just "Digital Service" readout for:

    5.2: KSTC
    5.6: This TV
    5.7: Live Well Network
    28.1: WHWC
    28.2: WPT2
    28.3: WPT3

    Are those 28.? channels from Wisconsin?

    Yes, it would be nice to get info for 5.2, 5.6, and 5.7.

    Originally I didn't have info for ThisTV & Dish said that I never would. But 6 or 12 months later the info magically appeared. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Thanks, Mike,

    We did have ThisTV info from March to June, when Hubbard rearranged the channels.

    I'm still waiting.

    One thing I find thats interesting: I have 2 recvrs w/ the MT2 module, the 922 recvr seems to have lots of info in its guide data for almost every channel, where-as for the other recvr, if its a digital sub-channel, it just says "Digital service". And oddity but not that big of a deal. All connected to the same dish/switch. The 922 is connected to the internet obviously, for sling purposes, whereas the other box is only connected to the dish. Not sure that that would have anything to do w/ it........but. 1 of these days I might connect the 211 to the ANT, just to see what it gets, but I think i'd need to run a wire.........maybe.

    So it seems anyone in a position to actually get anything done about this topic quit giving a flying fuck about this long ago.

    Is that an accurate assessment?

    Any other options?

    I purchased me a RCA ANT 1600F model. No amplifier used. Scanned in 10 stations. Will purchase an amplifier soon. Stations in average have a signal of 75. Hund the 1600F by a window. Stations come in verrrrrrrry clear. Then I moved the aerial to a different window and direction. The signal is much better now and even scanned in the PBS channels,

    Anyone ever use the Esky HG-831 outdoor aerial? What I like about this is the build in rotor. Less expensive than a Leaf Flat indoor aerial.

    I can use my old Direct TV pole which is securely mounted on my roof to secure the aerial.

    Great...
    Does anyone get guide info at all with their OTA module?

    All I get is "digital service" on All my channels. No help at all. I could have just left it [antenna] plugged into my tv for all the good it's doing.

    Waste of time.
