POST #26 (13 days ago) has still not been resolved. Please fix ASAP. Is Tribune even monitoring this thread?

One month and nine days, and this still hasn't been fixed. We don't get locals, at least let the program guide show these channels for OTA

Note: I can fool the AM21 into getting the 4 ch 18's by entering Kansas City Mo zip code.

This whole thread is a perfect example why the Directv OTA receivers should include a channel scan option.

UPDATE: I contacted Tribune media and made them aware of this thread. Apparently, Zap2it provides the guide data for D*'s guide and Zap2it needs to update their information. So, I hope this will be happening soon now that they are aware this thread exists.

Call Sign: WLIO
Location: Lima, OH
Channel: 8-2
Issue: HR-20 guide shows this as being 35-2, but selecting this channel gives a 771 error. This channel worked correctly and was listed as 8-2 when 8-2 was the CW network, but on 9/17 WLIO dropped the CW. The guide changed the channel to 35-2 and this channel was no longer received. And yes, there is programming on 8-2 and viewable by watching 8-2 directly through the TV.

This is a addition to Post #30 with new information

Ah, but did you get a response? It has been my experience, for the last 6 months, that everyone tends to pass the buck on this issue. DTV is not the only system affected by this. Media Center users are also screwed by Tribune.:mad:

This channel is now available on both the am21 and zap2it. I guess maybe they did check this thread. I had also sent a message through the website.

Location: Grand Junction, CO
Call Sign: KFQX
Channel: 4.1 FOX
Issue: Listed as 15.1 where there is no signal.

Cannot get hold of the engineer as he is trying to get the station recovered from a fire last year.


UPDATE:
This issue has finally been corrected:hurah:

Now the issue is CW. They were purchased by another station. They used to be on 11.2 and were moved to 8.3.

UPDATE 10-15-08
All channels are showing correctly here now. There are other signals in the area, but most are duplicates.

For those still waiting, these are the steps I took to get this resolved
1. Patience
2. Contact Tribune (zap2it) with channel map info
3. Contact local affiliate
4. Patience (especially when it involves changes to channel allocation)

new digital channel

Call Sign: KPXC-DT
Location: Denver, CO
Channel: 59-1 thru 59-4
59-1 is ION
59-2 is QUBO
59-3 is ION Life
59-4 is WORSHIP

ISSUE: There is no guide data on this channel on my H20-100, and I am not able to find it anywhere on my
HR-20-700 guide. Channel came on air about a month ago.

Titantv has this guide info now. I just checked. I did send an email to ION to speed up the process, but.............

Hi everyone:

Call sign: KTVB
Location: Twin Falls, ID
Channel: 7.7
Issue: Channel missing from guide. This is a new NBC affiliate

Actually, if you take a look at the FCC data, you will see this station's COL is Boise. Not Twin Falls.

OBTW....The Channel number is 7.1 Not 7.7 as you have it above.

Call sign: KTFT
Location: Twin Falls, ID
Channel: 7.8
Issue: Channel missing from guide. NBC subchannel

This would be Channel 7.2. Not Channel 7.8 as you have it above.

Just a couple corrections....

Cheers :)

Did you check the ION National feed channel (Sorry I don't remember the channel number offhand, but it is viewable regardless of where you live). One would think that (With the possible exception of QUBO), you'd find what you're looking for there.

Titantv has this guide info now. I just checked. I did send an email to ION to speed up the process, but.............

It might not be ION's problem (Especially if other ION affiliates are listed this way). If it's not an ION problem, then DirecTV is the one who needs to address the problem.

Just my $.02 worth....
