I have the 722k/w MT2 and I get the guide information for Antenna TV and THiS.PeggyD the solution to your problem maybe as easy as performing a check switch then your receiver will redownload the guide information.

To do this press Menu/System Setup-6/Installation-1/Point Dish-1/select Check Switch,Test/after it tests your switch,select Done,then press the View/Live TV button, after it reacquires the Signal it will reload the Program Guide.Hope this helps.Good Luck!:)

The availability of guide info for OTA channels not carried by Dish varies by market.

No, that doesn't work. Not only do I check every morning to see if the guide data has appeared, I've done a "check switch" about once a week, the last time being yesterday.

I think the problem is with Fox in Seattle. It's not just Dish. As I've said, my Sony HDTV doesn't recognize the channel exists nor does TVGuide.com. But TitanTV.com does see it with guide data.

While this statement is true, the fact remains that Antenna TV's guide data has been reported to be available in the E* EPG data stream. Ironically it shows up in a market where "THIS TV" guide does not appear, while I get the THIS TV guide data.

In the General Forum there is a similar thread to this one. I appealed to Matt from the Dish internet response team to try and find the proper department/person who can remedy this situation. I have previously tried calling tech support as well as "chatting" on line. Neither techs understood what I was requesting. I hope Matt can get to the bottom of this situation.

BTW: I see others have reported getting ION's sub-channel guide data. So far the only OTA ION data I get is the main ION feed, which is based on the national ION feed and not my local ION. Close but not always correct. Also none of the other ION subs (Qubo, ION Life) have data here in Cleveland.
