14020 KTSF2 SAN FRANCISCO, CA removed from 110° 31s43 (North California) (OTA EPG Data)

It WAS a channel that provided an EPG for people who received KTSF over the air. The 14000-15999 channels are not real channels that one can watch via satellite ... they are simply placemarkers. It is used as part of DISH's way of providing an EPG for a locally received channel (in this case, KTSF's 26-02.)

I contacted the engineer for these sister stations in Charlotte, NC in early March questioning whether Dish Network was going to add these two in HD. The engineer said that a contract had been signed and effective March 28th the channels would be available in HD. After they weren't, I contacted the engineer back and said it had been rescheduled for April 25th. The engineer said today that undoubtedly there is some type of technical problem with Dish Network. Can someone please tell me when these channels will be airing in HD on Dish? I have contacted customer service and they have no clue.

Thanks!!

We have no clue for you. Continue pestering that station's engineer - seems to me his in the loop.

I wish there were movement on that front here in Raleigh. I watch some CW programming and have troubles at times getting those OTA channels so it would be nice to pick them up.

I'm sure it is a pass-the-buck situation where if you called Dish they would say the local engineer is the hold-up... so patience is probably the best virtue.

It's Service Type. Not channel type.

8B - Pirate Barker Channel
8C - Barker Channel
9A...9E - Alternating Services (regardless SD/HD/QPSK/8PSK/MPEG-2/MPEG-4/etc)
A2 - VOD
A6 - MPEG2, ViP Only
A9 - IP FVOD
B1 - IP VOD 1080p
B4 - TEST

ITV - Interactive TV [Open TV]

Add to the table B1 - 1080p. So far encapsulating in IPTV.

There is no channel of that type currently in the table. The counts are for currently active channels, other codes (such as "92" for an MPEG2 SD channel on a 8PSK transponder) are not listed as they are not in use. ("92" channels were flagged differently than other MPEG2 SD so they would not show up on non-8PSK receivers that could not receive them.)

That mean each FW version in each model process the service type according creator's will.

Yep ... just like the MPEG2 HD that only appeared on ViP receivers and not the older models. Using code "A6" instead of "91" made the new for 2006 HD channels appear only on ViP receivers despite being in a format receivable on older equipment.

The type of channel ("service type") can be dealt with by each type of receiver based on the receiver's own capabilities and the desires of DISH Network.
