    Additional OTA guide channel has disappeared--that being our CBS local, KELO ch 11-1, so that's most of our network locals. Only one left is NBC

    Are there ever any success stories for these program guide issues?

    Six months later, my problems in Minneapolis never changed. New local channels have been added, and those also are listed as "Digital Service." Windows Media Center has everything listed perfectly, and they're free. Dish should be able to get channels straight.

    I posted an extensive list for the Cleveland market in September, 2011 (post #8 in the thread) and again in January 2012 (post #20) but nothing has changed!

    Has anybody had success getting their guide data corrected?

    Seems to be an exercise in futility, but here goes...

    WMAH - PBS - South Mississippi - Biloxi/Gulfport (my DMA), Hattiesburg/Laurel, parts of Mobile/Pensacola and New Orleans Markets.

    019-01 - PBS - WMAHDT1 or WMAHDT - Is the SD version but the channel logo is PBS HD. Has proper guide data.
    019-02 - PBS - WMAHDT2 or WMAHHD - Is the HD version, no channel logo (PBS HD logo should be here), no guide data. Guide data should mirror 19-01
    019-03 - Create TV - WMAHDT3 or WMAHC - No logo (should be the create logo), no guide data
    019-04 - MPB Think/Music Radio - no logo and no guide data. Is an audio only broadcast.

    Also the Dish provided feed for WMAH has the wrong channel number (16-00). It should be 19-00. (16 is the UHF frequency used by virtual channel 19)

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

    WKFK - Low power Independent - Pascagoula, MS
    All guide entries have no data, or channel logos. What they should be is as follows. Station ID's and guide say WKFK for all 5 channels.

    007-01 - This TV
    007-02 - Retro TV
    007-03 - AMGTV (late night and daytime) and ION (evenings)
    007-04 - Heartland
    007-05 - America ONE

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

    WFNA - CW and Bounce - Gulf Shores, AL - Mobile/Pensacola DMA and my part of the Biloxi/Gulfport market.
    055-01 - CW - all seems ok
    055-02 - Bounce TV - no logo or guide data

    Plenty more problems, but I'm not going any further until I see some results concerning these first. Why should anyone bother working on reporting things if nobody is going to bother fixing them...

    I haven't heard anything since my very detailed post in May. How are these posts really helpful? Shouldn't Dish be able to figure much of this out on their own? They probably can get data from our receivers and figure out which channels are showing up as "Digital Service" and figure out what the channels should be?

    Texas, of...
    Channels are from Victoria, Texas

    019-03 THiS - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as THIS in EPG but no guide data

    041-01 KXTS - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as KXTS in EPG but no guide data (Channel is also on 025-03 with call letters and guide data showing there)

    041-02 Antenna TV - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as KXTS in EPG instead of Antenna TV and no guide data

    There are also a few Spanish channels that have Digital Service in the guide data but I have no idea what they are since I don't view them.

    019-02 - listed as KVTX in EPG but no guide data

    028-01 - listed as DTV in EPG and no guide data

    045-01 - listed as KVTX in EPG and no guide data (this is likely the main channel with 019-02 repeating the channel, similar to how 025-03 repeats 041-01)

    I live in the Chico/Redding DMA. We have FOX channel KCVU that airs on OTA 020-01. Dish Network has correct EPG program data for both OTA and SAT. This same channel re-transmits for Redding, CA using 038-01 K38FQ. The EPG listing for this channel only shows K38FQ. It would be great if Dish Network could add K38FQ to the EPG so it will contain KCVU program data.

    OTA 06-01 EPG shows info for NBC. Actual broadcast is CBS. EPG should match 06-00.

    OTA 06-02 EPG shows info for Bounce. Actual broadcast is CWPLUS. EPG should show CW info.

    Please help. Thanks.

    I really like the USB OTA Adapter for the Hopper It does a very good job of picking up stations.

    However, there is not a way to add channels without doing a full scan. The other issue, I have a situation where Denver's Channel 7 broadcasts on two channels, the much weaker VHF 7 and the closer, and more strong UHF 17. The adpater finds both of them, but drops Channel 17 in favor of 7; even though 17 is the stringer signal.

    It would be nice to have a feature to have the hopper display all the channels it scans and allow the subscriber to select the better of duplicate channels.

    In other notes about OTA:

    The program Guide does not populate for 2.2 (ThisTV), 14.2 (Bounce TV), 14.3 Get TV), 25.2, 25.3 (COZI TV) , 31.2 (Antenna TV) , 50.2, in Denver. Even those those channels do send out EPG information.

    In the small Eureka, CA market:

    029-02 shows up in the guide as "Digital Service", but is the MYTV channel. The guide lists Dish channel 033-00 as KEMY which is MYTV, and this channel lists the 029-02 programming.

    035-01 shows Fox programming in the guide but is actually a univision channel.

    Thanks, Lee

    KATU (Portland OR) 2.1/2.2/2.3 scans into the 211k fine. There is a guide for KATU 2.1 (ABC) and 2.2 METV, but none for 2.3 Get TV. Get TV runs Classic movies. Can 2.3 EPG be added? Thank you.

    For the South Bend, IN DMA DISH/ Echostar needs to fix it’s OTA Program Guide Data for the Fox and H&I channels.

    22-02 WSBT2 is missing Program Data and is displaying "Digital Service". It should have the FOX Michiana Program info. It is currently showing up on the wrong channel 28-01 That info needs to be moved to OTA 22-2 WSBT2 (Fox).

    28-01 WSJV is now the H&I network. The Fox data displaying on this station now needs to be moved to 22-2.

    There haven't been any DIRT posts since 2013, in this thread. Is this information still helpful or being used? I posted in Dec. 2013 and haven't heard anything and nothing has been corrected. I would be happy to update my post from 2013 (mainly new channels and changed channels), if it would be used and possibly corrected. Otherwise, this thread should be closed so others don't waste their time.
