The underlying reasoning for this is because their is not a CBS on demand at this time. ...


Actually there is (see tonyd79's post #17 for instance);

It's channel 1002, but I don't have a WT for KCBS channel 2 in the guide to link to it for some reason.

A bug perhaps?

... Your Ind, Umas, and Fillm On is not on demand either as your local network affilates do not do the on demand content.


Yes I know, but my point is there is still a WT in the guide for them as well as KCET-28 (Ind.).

It's an obvious error, due to a bug perhaps?

... The ABC and NBC you have on demand is not from your local area it is a national feed to download television shows on demand. Their isn't enough bandwidth to cater to individual local network on demand channels so the local channels like ABC are the national on demand feed


Yes, again I realize this;

However the triangles are still erroneously there on those local channels nevertheless.

Is there a new software update for this? I've never seen any white triangles on the guide.


IIRC, the WT are only on the Genies

System still has some bugs though, as you may notice a few channels have the white triangle, but no on demand content.


Which ones?


232 Cooking Channel HD is missing WT
253 LMN HD is missing WT
264 BBC America HD is missing WT
271 H2 HD is missing WT
276 Nat Geo Channel HD is missing WT
283 Nat Geo Wild HD is missing WT
287 Military Channel has a WT but should not as no VOD exist
304 TV Land HD is missing WT
353 Bloomberg Television has a WT but should not as no VOD exist
406 Telemundo East has a WT but should not as no VOD exist
408 UniMas West SD/HD has a WT but should not as no VOD exist
445 MTV Tres is missing WT
541 Encore Action HD is missing WT
559 IFC HD is missing WT

No, it is NOT a glitch. It is poorly written software combined with poor pre-release testing and / or poor release management.

I just noticed maybe a new feature, maybe not, while checking out the white triangles.

 

While in the guide, with the preview window of the current channel in the upper left, I moved the highlighted channel area to a different channel in the far left channel column, selected and it changed the channel in the preview window without taking you out of the guide. Maybe that was there before and I didn't know.
