I currently get my locals through Dish network, but they are only broadcasted in SD. So i decided to purchase the OTA module for one of my 722k DVR's, so i could watch and record HD feeds through my receiver. Out of the 6 channels i get, only one will show the program guide in the Dish receiver. The others only show "digital service". Here are the following channels i am talking about,

044-01 WTLW > 044-00 Dish (has guide information)
044-02 WTLW
035-01 WOHL > 018-00 Dish
035-02 WOHL > 038-00 Dish
008-01 WLIO > 008-00 Dish
008-02 WLIO > 025-00 Dish

I live in Lima,Ohio 45805. Is there any fix for this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just got done with text chat with Dish Technical. They informed me that the channel numbers must match from your local station, to there allocated channel number in the guide or else they wont work. Thus, it appears correct except for my channel "8". Not sure if i beleive it, but i dont think i have much choice unless i get some advice here to point me in another direction.
