Anyone have a clue how long it will take Dish to update the EPG to show Hallmark & Hallmark Movies?
no it sure is a pain. OTOH www.tvguide.com has a good Sky Angel guide including Hallmark Movie Channel
It's a matter of SKYANGEL requesting this.. Some odd reason they are not. Skyangel has to request to DISH to have them change the EPG and usually its done quickly ( I remeber when they added TLN it had the correct listings quickly so I think this is one of those cases Skyangel is dropping the ball on it.
Still no EPG for the "mainstream" channels.
Perhaps E* has a problem with SA adding these channels. There are a few that have dropped their Top-180 or 120 subscriptions down to top-60 when these were added.
They may be waiting for HGTV to come on board before they update the EPG.
Why should they wait for HGTV to add the EPG data? FNC has been on for what, a couple of months now, and the Hallmark twins for just a little bit less than that. That's plenty of time to add EPG data. Thoose of us with DVR's need the EPG to efficiently record programming.
Has anybody contacted Dominion regrding all these "Special Programming" blocks? They havn't even changed the names on the channels (INSP, Daystar, and GMT). Do they think they are pulling one over on E* by mis-identifying these channels for so long?
E* is doing the actual uplink of all the SkyAngel channels.
They know EXACTLY what content is on what channel, regardless of tags.
They are not being deceived by SkyAngel.
I believe that they want to save it for a major announcement ... but I've already received a 'New Channel Lineup' card in the mail so they might as well get the EPG fixed. Now.
sent an email to SA they said they hope to have guide working by next week. Sure hope so. I love Hallmark but very difficult to watch with no guide info.
The EPG has been updated today.
Do Not expect the EPGs that are stored in the receiver to have complete info until the daily/next update occurs.
There and looking good. We had a four hour power outage due to a storm so I got the EPG download and did a little cheer.
Now I know what is on HMC!
I noticed as I went thru my sky angel programming that dish updated the EPG for sky angel channels last night..... Hallmark, Hallmark Movie Channel, and Fox News Channel. it was about time. does anyone know if there will be any more new channels added to sky angel other than the HGTV channel?
My wife will now be happy about Hallmark Movie Channel.
SA cannot add any more channels without removing something.
i have been telling my wife..
alot of good movies i think you will like are on hallmark movie channel.
just check the sky angel guide(paper one) its got all the movies listed....
nah thats o.k. she sez...
so now its on the onscreen guide and she has watched 3 movies in 2 days
on the channel!!
things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I use Stand Alone Tivo and yesterday I finally got guide for Hallmark Movie channel and Fox News... Tivo has the wrong channel listed for Hallmark but has guide on that old channel number, maybe I should call Tivo?
Yep. Halmark is now on it's "permanent" location and Tivo needs to update their data.
