722 Locals problem
Posted 29 May 2008 - 08:09 AM
So my question is, how can I get the dish supplied locals to map to the correct local channel numbers. I just rebooted the receiver, and ran a test switch to see if that would help, but its still the same.
Also, how can I get the guide info to appear for the digital OTA locals. As I understand it, if I subscribe to the locals from dish it should transfer the guide data to the OTA as well. I have had the 211 for about a year now, and it displays the guide info for OTA. Is there a trick, or menu option that I am missing? Thanks for any help.

Other than that there are no other settings to get guide data except scan in your OTA channels and it appears you have done that. I would check the Dish OTA area for you DMA and see if there are any issues being reported there.
It does take time.. Like ChuckA said.. Do a checkswitch and see if that bring them in. You should get a downloading Guide message after the checkswitch. If that does not work.. I would start to think you might run into a localize OTA issue.

The new 722 is showing my dish locals in the 8000s, but is not mapping them down to the correct channel number. I suspect that my OTA guide info problem will be fixed once I can get the dish locals to map to the correct channels.

Other than that.. So the 722 is showing digital service on all your OTA channels? Also are you showing any Dish HD channels in your -00 slot next to your OTA channels..
The 722 has some settings under the Local Channel for mapping.. what are yours set to? This should have nothing to do with you not getting local guide information but if I am reading your posts correctly you might be right as to these two things being related.
I definitely would verify with Dish that your account is set up correctly given the fact you are seeing guide information in your 211. It is possible you are running into a location specific 722 bug, but given you are also having issues with other regional mapping I think checking your account might be prudent.

After MANY reboots and dish sending multiple *reactivation* signals to my 722, it is working normal now. Apparently my 722 was very stubborn and did not completely activate itself, according to the tech. Anyways, glad it is working now, thanks again for the tips.
