Olympic channels 147 and 148 Guide Data backwards (may be fixed now) or not!
Posted 03 August 2012 - 11:16 AM
But this morning I noticed that the EPG data is now backwards. Channel 147 shows "Soccer" while 148 shows "Basketball"... but the channels themselves are broadcasting correct content.
Just the EPG is backwards.

147 OBBL with Basketball descriptions
148 OSOC with Soccer descriptions

I don't know when it got fixed... I did just force an EPG update though as a result of having everything unplugged to reconfigure some things and after the checkswitch and new guide download I see the data is correct.
So... they may have fixed it at some point after my receiver last updated the EPG and before I just now had a forced update.
I'll close the thread if nobody else pipes up with a problem this evening.

(DISH has linked EPGs where one EPG can serve multiple channels.)

Now the blocks are shorter and specifically list each scheduled game... so now you can tune in when you want or even DVR the desired game. I've been trying to catch US men and women basketball games when I remember.

OBBL is listing Soccer EPG info, while OSOC is listing the Basketball EPG.
I have multiple receivers and this is true on all of them.
It was correct for nearly 24 hours, but now back to backwards.
Surely I'm not the only one seeing this? I can't think of a receiver issue that would affect different models with the same problem.

147 guide shows soccer, 148 guide shows basketball for me. So yes, reversed. It would have been more fun to have you think you are the only one though....
I would love to be that special
But it is glad to see confirmation. The other day it happened and fixed itself while most people probably were at work... I was thinking more people would notice on a weekend day once people started waking up and tuning in.
Imagine the surprise of anyone with a receiver that sets a Dish Pass timer for basketball who gets a random section of a soccer match instead!

My EPG is also reversed.

I am happy to report that Stewart Vernon is not that special.

All a guess of course... but it does seem like this kind of glitch on a weekend gets ignored until after the weekend.
edit: Checked Zap2it and they have the info correct... so that might shoot down my "it's Tribune's fault" theory.

Still, it looks like someone is trying to do something with the data.
