Wichita-Hutchinson, Kansas

This has become a nightmare within itself. I don't understand why Dish doesn't allow their OTA ATSC tuners to handle their own EPG and let the main EPG handle the programming they alone carry. It is a basic feature all 3rd party OTA ATSC tuners have. But here we go.

I recently moved to the Eastern Arc because I had poor LOS to 129 and low signal. Since my locals are on 110/119, I don't get any locals off Dish because I'm pointed at 72/61.5. All OTA channels read DIGITAL SERVICE. Okay fine, I put a Dish 300 up for guide data off 119. Here are the results.

The OTA I currently receive:

003-01 KSNW OK
010-01 KAKE OK
012-01 KWCH OK
012-02 KWCH WX OK
015-01 K15D Digital Service (Local HSN channel)
024-01 KSAS OK

024-02 ATN Digital Service Odd Issue --> Black screen with just audio only while the dish banner still on the screen, when the on-screen display disappears the audio drops as well. Hooked to the tv's ATSC tuner and scanned it works fine.

031-01 Univ Digital Service (Needs remapped from KDCU provided by Dish)
033-01 KSCW OK
036-01 KMTW OK
036-02 CNTV Digital Service

I am looking to get the entire OTA fleet soon and was curious if these channels, and sub-channels, are supported:

KPTS
KWKD
KCTU
KGPT
KSMI
KFVT

Any chance these can be uplinked to the 72/61.5 EPG?

Biloxi/Gulfport DMA

DishNetwork 722 receiver

19-02 WMAH PBS from over-the-air antenna showing "Digital Service" in e.p.g. (19-01 shows correct information, but it's in standard definition, 19-02 is the high definition sub-channel that I'd prefer to see in the e.p.g.)

25-01 WXXV Fox station from over-the-air antenna showing KTUU NBC programs in e.p.g.

I'm in the Abilene-Sweetwater, Texas market. I'm still on Western Arc.

I hooked rabbit ears to my receivers and the reception is very good. I hooked a hard drive to the 211k and I'm about to enable it but I need EPG data to get the best use of it. The 222k and the 211k have differences.

222k
042-02 KIDZ Digital Service (myTV 42-00)
042-01 KXVA EPG
042-00 KIDZ EPG
040-00 KTES EPG
032-01 KTAB EPG
032-00 KTAB EPG
015-02 KIDZ Digital Service (myTV 42-00)
015-01 KXVA EPG
015-00 KXVA EPG
012-03 KTES Digital Service (the 211k gets EPG and shows 20-3) (KTES 40-0)
012-02 NTXS Digital Service (the 211k gets EPG and shows 20-2) (CW Plus)
012-01 KTXS EPG
012-00 KTXS EPG
009-02 Bounce Digital Service
009-01 KRBC EPG
009-00 KRBC EPG


211k
042-02 KIDZ Digital Service (myTV 42-00)
042-01 KXVA EPG
042-00 KIDZ EPG
040-00 KTES EPG
032-01 KTAB EPG
032-00 KTAB EPG
020-03 KTES EPG
020-02 NTXS EPG (CW Plus)
020-01 KTXS EPG
015-02 KIDZ Digital Service (myTV 42-00)
015-01 KXVA EPG
015-00 KXVA EPG
012-00 KTXS EPG
009-02 Bounce Digital Service
009-01 KRBC EPG
009-00 KRBC EPG

The only subchannel without available EPG is Bounce. It sure would be nice to get those listings, too, like CW Plus.

Charlottesville,VA area. Two hoppers, both with USB OTA dongles. Hoppers receive and can view 16, 19, 27, 29, 41 including subs, but no EPG info for ANY channel. Contacted Dish advanced tech support and am told that all EPG for OTA comes from the stations themselves and NOT from Dish and that I need to contact my local channels ! (Someone needs to clue their own tech support in on things).

My installation has a view of 61.5 and 77 sats, but not 129 sat where SD locals come in (due to tree obstructions). Was hoping for ability to combine HD locals thru USB OTA hopper with satellite channels from 61.5 for a complete HD system. Looking at a channel satellite list it seems all the OTA EPG is coming thru 129 on subchannels. Now looking like I might have to go back to cable. Are there any solutions here ? Please confirm.

You have answered your own question; NO 129 - NO EPG data. If you are (really) supposed to be on Western Arc, then that's what you are going to have to figure out how to get a signal accordingly. DISH only sends up the OTA EPG data for a given station, on the SAME sats where the satellite feed for that said station resides.

For the Boston DMA :

Looks like Dish needs to add Virtual channels for WENH2 and WENH4:

11-01 WENH1 TSID 0x07C3, Subchannel 01 (DISH Channel 14028)
11-02 WENH TSID 0x07C3, Subchannel 02 (DISH Channel 8781)
11-03 WENH3 TSID 0x07C3, Subchannel 03 (DISH Channel 14062)

WENH 11.2 is getting EPG info from WENH 011-00 which is the satellite SD version of WENH. The actual OTA 11.2 has different programming.

WENH 11.4 says "Digital Service"
