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