What better source could have responded? Probably none since Satelliteracer has been "right on" in the past. :)

Satelliteracer, do you know if Johnstown/Altoona, PA (DMA #101) is still scheduled to get ABC and FOX in HD on October 8th?

Maybe WGNT/CW since it is a CBS O&O...

LILS are slowly being added on DirecTV online program guide at DirecTV.com :)

They have filtered in throughout the day. :D So far only the major 4 networks are showing up, this could however change in the next 24 hrs or so.

While i am not entirely positive, i would think Wednesday. The channels would have to be active on your receiver in order to see the guide data.
