the challenge has become more important than the channel itself.

lol agree.

I did find this discussion about a direct tv tuner that would not show a specific sub channel due to it not being included in the guide data provided.
I am wondering if this is the case as I can find no physical reason that the channel will not show up.

I don't think Dish has to add anything, because it isn't the guide info that's the problem, it's the channel itself. It scans in but does not add to the guides. I have had several sub channels get added by a station, most recently the ABC WTNH station and within minutes of the station putting it on the air, I scanned it in.

MY 222k reciever OTA channels will vanish about once a month and I have to rescan and add them back to my guide and when they showed in my guide they showed up in RED not yellow saying Im not subscribed to my local OTA antenna TV which is crazy. its a pain to repeat this process every few weeks but i figure its a dish network bug, just like other bugs they have, but say they dont have LOL.. so I will just keep on keeping on rescanning.....its still better than comcast........LOL:lol:

The main channel and the subchannel are both multiplexed into the same signal. Simply receiving the main channel should give you both assuming the PSIP data is compatible with the tuner. It sounds like the Dish tuner has a problem with the encoding of the channel info for the subchannel.

Have you talked with the station to see if they are aware of anyone else in the area with the same receiver having the same problem.

I once had a problem with my old Sanyo ATSC tuner and the local PBS station, no sound whatsoever. Other tuners would work OK, but not the Sanyo, which was OK on all the other channels. Turned out there was an anomaly in the PSIP data - found after I called the station and reported it.
Tuners: Hopper 2000; Hopper w/Sling; 3 Joeys; Samsung SIR-T351; Accurian 6000;2 X HD TiVo; 2 X TiVo Series 2 Stand alone; Panasonic Showstopper 2000
Dish 1000.2 @ 110, 119, 129; dish 500 @ 61.5
Antennas - CM4228; RS U75-R; coathanger; Funke PSP.1922 (stillin the box); paperclip

Give me a Finco colinear array and I'll rule the world - HA-HA-HA-HA!

once you scanned for the new channel and have saved it you may want to try and go to menu , preferences(8), favorite list (2), choose any guide under my list , select modify list. Punch in channel 47 manually on key pad. The newly scanned channel 47-1 and 47-2 should show up. Place a check by 47-2 then hit save. The channel should be added to that particular guide that you chose. I had the same problem when channel 5 added a 5-3. Hope it works.:)
