Something you can try. Run 45201 (Cincinnati OH) as a secondary zip. Cinn. has a 48.1 PBS channel that should give you Lubbock's 48.1 with the guide for Cinn 48.1 PBS channel. But, Cinn. runs METV on 5.2 and I noticed Lubbock has a 5.2 channel not in D* database. If your antenna picks up Lubbocks 5.2 channel, when you run 45201 you will get 5.2 Lubbock with the METV guide from Cincinnati's 5.2 channel. A round about way, with the guide on the wrong channel. But it at least puts the METV guide in your DVR.

When I put in the zip code for the nearest town (Foley, AL) I get everything except WDPM (Daystar) which is relatively new and low power and…

WALA Fox 10 - which was the first digital broadcaster in the market, if not the state. Weird that they'd be completely left out of the listings on the AM21.

I just setup and have the same thing. No WALA option for Fox 10-1 in Mobile Alabama.

WALA is in the database. It broadcasts on VHF channel 9, so make sure the antenna you're using is a combo UHF/VHF model since many antennas that were marketed as "HDTV" during the transition are UHF only, despite it being known since the mid 00s that nearly every market will have at least one station returning to the VHF band post transition.

Orlando,Melbuorne and Daytona markets show channel 31-2 as WRDQDT2 (AntennaTV) which is incorrect,27-2 is the proper listing.

31-2 does not even show in Directv database but it shows up in the guide when running the ota channel search.

When clicking on said channel it is really Telemundo.

Directv needs to remove 31-2 from the search and make it 27-3 Telemundo.


I mentioned this on various other threads but never came around to mentioning it here.

That has nothing to do with the database, it's more of an issue of how WRDQ is now broadcasting two -2 channels and the scan is latching on to the last one. 27-3 used to be the Telemundo simulcast but earlier this year they changed the mapping to 31-2:
