    ^^^ Man, I wasn't trying to diss him! I honestly was thinking the stations somehow showed up without being in the uplink report; I didn't know he was manually pulling the reports somehow.

    I dig it, apologies if I came across the same way. Simple ignorance in not knowing how this works, and asking!

    Unfortunately the 129 satellite is 29˚ off the horizon and doesn't even make it through trees half a mile away. I've given E* a call & the CSRs were all confused as to why a west coast satellite would house an east coast DMA. I'm sandwiched between two large DMAs (Jax & Tampa) who are on the EA. Their choice of satellite for my DMA makes zero sense. I'll continue to rant in a DMA specific thread :p

    BET HD is showing on my Favorites EPG, but it's in red. My guess is that this is temporary since I've always had the SD version and I'm in the top tier (250).

    As I type, I'm doing a Check Switch and the new EPG is downloading in hopes that this will clear the red out. Last night it took about 15-mins to download, so I'm here on-line tonight while my 622 is busy-busy. (Used to be a time when my EPG loaded in under 30-secs - the good ole' days?)

    Thanks, JohnH, for the constant vigilance you hold. We seldom say it, but it's appreciated ... a lot.

    Agreed, 29 degrees EL does make it tough for a 'city' install. I was able to repoint my dish and I have reports of several others who have been successful as well.

    Dish may put GNV on Eastern Arc one day, but it probably won't happen for some time. I doubt they will use a CONUS transponder on 77 for a market as (relative to JAX) small as GNV.

    More than likely it is in red because the receiver needs to know it is fully authorized to view those channels and content. Call Tech Support and have them send you an Authorization Hit. I'm sure they'd be glad to. Give the receiver 5 minutes and then, if it still doesn't come in, do a front-panel reset (press and hold Power button for 10 seconds on front of rcvr; it will turn itself off and come back on by itself within about 3 minutes; attn 015, possible 330 download epg, at that point you should be fine)...
