...uh, no. Sorry.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Which receiver do you have? You may be able to get it OTA. If you have a 722, you should try plugging an antenna into it. If you have a 722k or Hopper, you can buy an addon that would allow you to connect an antenna.

You will get guide data for many channels and be able to record them too.

With 12 HD channels already, what makes you so special that someone else on both EA and WA may have to suffer? Chicago is a dual-arc market so anything added there is going to consume capacity on both arcs.

I need some help


I certainly agree that you need some kind of help... :rolleyes:

ask them to add the following HD Channels WCHU Channel 61 Azteca,


How can DISH add a (local) HD channel that is NOT even transmitted in HD in the first place - NOT to mention it's NOT even a full-power channel to boot? :rolleyes:

WYCC Channel 20 PBS

You just GOT 2 out of your 3 PBS upgraded to HD, geeze...why don't you let them take a breath & you'll probably be getting WYCC shortly.
DirecTV does NOT even carry WYIN-56 in HD, so you're already ahead of DirecTV on this one.

and WCPX Channel 38 ION they are all of the Chicago area.


Again, even DirecTV does NOT carry ION 38 in HD, although they did add a national HD feed instead.

Do you even really watch this (or ANY of the other 2) stations to begin with - or are you just OCD'g (AGAIN) on this subject? :rolleyes: :nono2:

Some of us don't even have 12 local channels of HD - I can pickup (OTA) 8-9 most of the time, and I know just about all are available in some form on Dish.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...
