    Are the ones you are requesting full power stations transmitting over the air in HD?

    Which receiver do you have? You may be able to get it OTA. If you have a 722, you should try plugging an antenna into it. If you have a 722k or Hopper, you can buy an addon that would allow you to connect an antenna.

    You will get guide data for many channels and be able to record them too.

    With 12 HD channels already, what makes you so special that someone else on both EA and WA may have to suffer? Chicago is a dual-arc market so anything added there is going to consume capacity on both arcs.

    I certainly agree that you need some kind of help... :rolleyes:

    How can DISH add a (local) HD channel that is NOT even transmitted in HD in the first place - NOT to mention it's NOT even a full-power channel to boot? :rolleyes:

    You just GOT 2 out of your 3 PBS upgraded to HD, geeze...why don't you let them take a breath & you'll probably be getting WYCC shortly.
    DirecTV does NOT even carry WYIN-56 in HD, so you're already ahead of DirecTV on this one.

    Again, even DirecTV does NOT carry ION 38 in HD, although they did add a national HD feed instead.

    Do you even really watch this (or ANY of the other 2) stations to begin with - or are you just OCD'g (AGAIN) on this subject? :rolleyes: :nono2:

    Some of us don't even have 12 local channels of HD - I can pickup (OTA) 8-9 most of the time, and I know just about all are available in some form on Dish.
