It's NOT because of memory....

The 6000 has an OTA tuner built in. (yes, its optional) so you get your locals on the 'lower" numbers if you use the tuner.

It will be the same on the 811 & 921 - satellite locals in the 8000's, OTA on actual number.

When I inquired with DishNetwork some time back, that is what they told me.

OTA channels from the 8VSB module all begin with "0" such as 007-0 for Analog 7 and 007-1 for Digital 7. They could still channel map channel 7 for satellite 7 if there wasn't a problem, like memory. There has to be a way to differentiate satellite from OTA, maybe that's the way they are doing it.

I know this thread has been around for a long time, but here's one "feature" I found years ago on the 6000 that has never been fixed:

Using the remote, power off your 6000
Press the "Sys Info" button. You should see your 6000's System Information screen.
Now, press the "SD/HD" button twice.

You should now see whatever channel you were previously watching, but with no LEDs lit on the 6000. Home Theater mode! The 6000 responds to all your remote control inputs like it was on.

If you'd like to replace the fan. You can get a 40mm x 10mm quiet fan, but any tampering with the fan will void any warrenty coverage that you may have.

There are a lot of fans available on that page with different kinds of connectors. There's also another page on this site for "quiet fans". Can anyone please help me out with exactly the best fan to use from this source? I need quiet! Help me out.

I have updated the list to include a new issues that has appeared this month. The model 6000 acts up on HD channels if you haven't upgraded to the Yellow Smart Card.

I also didn't see Foxbat's posted trick. I'll confirm this when I get home and added to the list. Home Theater mode, cool.
