Anyone else seeing 56-56 appearing on their sets?
This appears to be a promo channel for DISH network

see note below: channel now appears as 56-1

I noticed the other morning that DISH 56-1 is now appearing on my set and in the channel guide. 'Regular Programming' is all the guide shows but this channel is clearly a customer information channel for DISH network

correct guide data seems to still be an issue here in the Atlanta area.

11-3 - is now dark. Universal Sports moved to 36.3 a few weeks back but the guide continues to show listing for 11-3.

36-2 - Bounce Network has been on the air for several months but all the program guide shows is 'Regular Programming' for the listing.

36 - 3 will be moving to Antenna TV as of Christmas Eve and hopefully they will update the program guide as 'Regular Programming' just won't cut it..


Edit: The issue above only effects the AM21N. With the AM21, 36-2 and 36-3 do not exist..

I re-ran OTA setup last night on my HR24-200/AM-21 combo. WXIA 11-2 is now in the guide (and tunable) and 11-3 is gone.

Thank you Mark! It hadn't occurred to me to follow DirecTV on Facebook, but now I do.
