    I was wondering why a search for the Peoples Choice Awards wasn't finding anything, then I see it is mispelled in the EPG as People's Chce. What kind of dolts are they hiring at Tribune Media Services? :confused:

    I went to dishnetwork.com and the guide there has the correct title. Which begs the question, "Why is Dish using 2 sources for the guide info?"

    Dish may be doing their own corrections to Tribune's data (TiVo is known to do this). It's hard to say.

    I would guess that the vast majority of subscribers get their info from the EPG, not from the online guide. It would make better sense to make corrections to the EPG if any changes are to be made. Could it be that Dish isn't allowed to update the EPG?

    The Epg on the dish home page comes from an other source (zap2it), and the actual EPG on our rcvr's comes from tribune media, so if dish doesn realize the mistake in its actual epd,it wud be corrected! :D

    The EPG and Zap2It frequently don't match. Why would they? They come from the same source but different workers handle the input. One speaks Tagalog and the other Hindi.:rolleyes:
