OK, folks, here we go...

I've got some friends in high places who tell me they're committed to finally fixing the "Channels I Get" issues. But they need data... a LOT more data. So I need your help.

Please vote if the channels listed in this poll appear in your "Channels I Get" list, but you don't actually get them. Please also post in this thread with complete details of your programming package.

At this point, our friends at DIRECTV aren't interested in part-time sports channels, Regional Sports Networks, or any channel showing a DIRECTV logo. They're also not interested in music channels (because you might get errors on some of those without a Slimline-5)

There are only a few channels left that seem to be a problem...

I see channels 293 and 379 and do not receive them

[EDIT] I also receive the HBO package with Sundance and IFC (another perk of the legacy package and I like them but don't like showtime}

By the way, I think the 721 errors on 293 are due to a free trial of that channel that may have just ended, or may be about to start. But please vote for it if you get the 721 error.

All the other channels are channels I actually get - some of which I didn't know I got and some of which I thought everybody got.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Right... there are lower packages that don't get those channels, and those folks are encouraged to vote too.

I just saw a TVMail today that a free preview was starting for 293.

Just for the record, I have a SlimLine-5 and get a 721 error on several SonicTap channels.

Will go through the list of channels later today after work, and will vote then.

Every one of them appears in my CIG list. I guess they're not working on Family yet.
