What Sats do you receive from? Try a check-switch or power-button reset of your receiver and see if shows up then.

I've noticed some channels don't even show up as red if you aren't subscribed to their package, for example when I dropped Multi-Sport for the summer (it's worthless until college football starts up) all of the out-of-market RSNs totally disappeared!
E* wants: ESPNU HD, CSS, MLB Network, The Mtn, Gol TV, and full-time HD RSNs!

I thought we already had FUEL? Maybe I'm remembering it from my D* days. Never really watched it much so I never missed it.

I think dish is making a mistake by not showing channels unless you sub .If they were in the all channel guide. It might get someone to upgrade their subscription. Not that I would for this channel but I would like to see all the channels listed.

I've had some new channels start out as locked. They don't show up if locked out. Once I unlocked them they showed up in the all-channel guide. This is on a 622
