I am located in Fallston, MD and receive channels from multiple DMAs.  Some of the information is incomplete because I was not receiving the channel at the time I checked and I don't watch the channel enough to give an accurate answer.

 

Baltimore DMA:

  • OK:  2-1 & 2-2 (WMAR), 11-1 & 11-2 (WBAL), 13-1 (WJZ), 22-1, 22-2, 22-3 (WMPT), 24-1 (WUTB), 45-1, 45-2 (WBFF), 54-1 (WNUV)
  • Digital Service
    • 24-2 (WUTB) - Bounce 
    • 45-3 (WBFF) - Country Music TV
    • 67-1, 67-2, 67-3 (WMPB) - Should be the same programming as WMPT (22-1, 22-2 & 22-3 respectively).    This is annoying because I receive this channel better than WMPT and have to set up manual timers to record on this channel.  The same programming is also broadcast over the other Maryland Public TV stations (WCPB (28), WWPB (31), WGPT (36), & WFPT (62))

       

Washington DC DMA

  • OK:  4-1 (WRC); 5-1 (WTTG); 7-1 (WJLA), 9-1 (WUSA), 20-1 (WDCA), 26-1, 26-2, 26-3, 26-4 (WETA), 30-1, 30-2, 30-3, 30-5 (WNVC/WNVT), 32-1 (WHUT), 50-1, 50-2 (WDCW), 66-1 (WPXW) 
  • Don't watch too much, but it looks OK: 4-2 (WRC), 7-2, & 7-3 (WJLA), 9-2 (WUSA), 14-1 (WFDC)
  • Digital Service:

    •  

      9-3 (WUSA) - Weather

    • 20-2 (WDCA) - Fox Mundo

    • 50-3 (WDCW) - This TV

    • 62-1, 62-2, 62-3 (WFPT) - Should be the same programming as 22-1, 22-2 & 22-3 respectively

    • 66-2 (WPXW)- Qubo

    • 66-3 (WPXW) - Ion Life

    • 66-4 (WPXW) - Infomercials

  • Lacking Detail:

    • 30-4 (WNVC/WNVT) - Program guide just shows "RT," but doesn't show the RT schedule.  IT seems to be the same programming that Dish carries on channel 280

    • 32-02 (WHUT) - Program guide just shows "WHUT DT2" but doesn't show the schedule.  It seems that it is the same programming as 32-01, but in SD

  • Oddities

    • WPXW - Every time I do a channel scan, it comes up with a different batch of channels, but it always includes 66-1 through 66-3.  Sometimes it comes up with 66-4, which I can receive   Sometimes it comes up with a whole bunch of other channels that I can't receive   I think these are subscription mobile channels.  Sometimes, it even goes up to channel 67 and wipes out the real channel 67 (WMPB).


       

 

York/Harrisburg/Lancaster DMA

  • OK:  8-1 & 8-2 (WGAL), 43-1 (WPMT), 49-1 (WGCB)
  • Don't watch too much, but it looks OK:  15-1 (WLYH)
  • Digital Service
    • 15-02 (WLYH) - I don't know what is supposed to be on this channel.  The label says "Cool"
    • 43-02 (WPMT) - Labeled as "Ante" and I think it shows Antenna TV 
    • 43-03 (WPMT) - Labeled as "Fox2" which is not correct.  It repeats the last local news program 24/7.
    • 49-2 (WGCB) - Labeled as "USpo" from when it was Universal Sports.  Now, it shows MeTV (but not the Eastern feed like 49-1; I assume it is the Western feed).  

 

Philadelphia DMA

  • OK:  6-1 (WPVI), 17-01 (WPHL)
  • Don't watch too much, but it looks OK: 6-2 (WPVI), 12-01 & 12-03 (WHYY), 17-02 (WPHL)
  • Digital Service:

    • 12-02 (WHYY) - I don't know what is supposed to be on this channel

    • 17-03 (WPHL) - Labeled as "This", but I am not sure what is supposed to be on this channel

    • 17-04 (WPHL) - TANG - Traffic cameras

Since the swap between WCCB 018-01 formerly Fox Charlotte and  WJZY CW,046-01 the guide data is wrong for 018-01 and 046-01. The guide for 018-01 should be with 046-01 and vice versa.

Additional OTA guide channel has disappeared--that being our CBS local, KELO ch 11-1, so that's most of our network locals. Only one left is NBC

Are there ever any success stories for these program guide issues?

 

Six months later, my problems in Minneapolis never changed. New local channels have been added, and those also are listed as "Digital Service." Windows Media Center has everything listed perfectly, and they're free. Dish should be able to get channels straight.

I posted an extensive list for the Cleveland market in September, 2011 (post #8 in the thread) and again in January 2012 (post #20) but nothing has changed!

 

Has anybody had success getting their guide data corrected?

Seems to be an exercise in futility, but here goes...

 

WMAH - PBS - South Mississippi - Biloxi/Gulfport (my DMA), Hattiesburg/Laurel, parts of Mobile/Pensacola and New Orleans Markets.

 

019-01 - PBS - WMAHDT1 or WMAHDT - Is the SD version but the channel logo is PBS HD. Has proper guide data.

019-02 - PBS - WMAHDT2 or WMAHHD - Is the HD version, no channel logo (PBS HD logo should be here), no guide data. Guide data should mirror 19-01

019-03 - Create TV - WMAHDT3 or WMAHC - No logo (should be the create logo), no guide data

019-04 - MPB Think/Music Radio - no logo and no guide data. Is an audio only broadcast.

 

Also the Dish provided feed for WMAH has the wrong channel number (16-00). It should be 19-00. (16 is the UHF frequency used by virtual channel 19)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

WKFK - Low power Independent - Pascagoula, MS

All guide entries have no data, or channel logos. What they should be is as follows. Station ID's and guide say WKFK for all 5 channels.

 

007-01 - This TV

007-02 - Retro TV

007-03 - AMGTV (late night and daytime) and ION (evenings)

007-04 - Heartland

007-05 - America ONE

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

WFNA - CW and Bounce - Gulf Shores, AL - Mobile/Pensacola DMA and my part of the Biloxi/Gulfport market.

055-01 - CW - all seems ok

055-02 - Bounce TV - no logo or guide data

 

Plenty more problems, but I'm not going any further until I see some results concerning these first. Why should anyone bother working on reporting things if nobody is going to bother fixing them...

I haven't heard anything since my very detailed post in May.  How are these posts really helpful?  Shouldn't Dish be able to figure much of this out on their own?  They probably can get data from our receivers and figure out which channels are showing up as "Digital Service" and figure out what the channels should be?

Channels are from Victoria, Texas

 

019-03 THiS  - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as THIS in EPG but no guide data

 

041-01 KXTS - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as KXTS in EPG but no guide data (Channel is also on 025-03 with call letters and guide data showing there)

 

041-02 Antenna TV - Shows Digital Service in EPG - listed as KXTS in EPG instead of Antenna TV and no guide data

 

There are also a few Spanish channels that have Digital Service in the guide data but I have no idea what they are since I don't view them.

 

019-02 - listed as KVTX in EPG but no guide data

 

028-01 - listed as DTV in EPG and no guide data

 

045-01 - listed as KVTX in EPG and no guide data (this is likely the main channel with 019-02 repeating the channel, similar to how 025-03 repeats 041-01)

I live in the Chico/Redding DMA.  We have  FOX channel KCVU that airs on OTA 020-01.  Dish Network has correct EPG program data for both OTA and SAT.  This same channel re-transmits for Redding, CA using 038-01 K38FQ.  The EPG listing for this channel only shows K38FQ.  It would be great if Dish Network could add K38FQ to the EPG so it will contain KCVU program data.

Beaumont, TX 77713

 

OTA 06-01 EPG shows info for NBC.  Actual broadcast is CBS.  EPG should match 06-00.

 

OTA 06-02 EPG shows info for Bounce.  Actual broadcast is CWPLUS.  EPG should show CW info.

 

Please help.  Thanks.

I really like the USB OTA Adapter for the Hopper It does a very good job of picking up stations.

 

However, there is not a way to add channels without doing a full scan. The other issue, I have a situation where Denver's Channel 7 broadcasts on two channels, the much weaker VHF 7 and the closer, and more strong UHF 17. The adpater finds both of them, but drops Channel 17 in favor of 7; even though 17 is the stringer signal.

 

It would be nice to have a feature to have the hopper display all the channels it scans and allow the subscriber to select the better of duplicate channels.

 

In other notes about OTA:

 

The program Guide does not populate for 2.2 (ThisTV), 14.2 (Bounce TV), 14.3  Get TV), 25.2, 25.3 (COZI TV) , 31.2 (Antenna TV) , 50.2, in Denver. Even those those channels do send out EPG information.
