14836 WCSH3 PORTLAND, ME (NBC) removed from 110° 23s8 (North Maine) (OTA EPG Data)

 

 

Not to nit-pick but Portland is in Southern Maine or is 'North Maine' the ID for the Spotbeam?.

It is the ID for the spotbeam (usually a description of the center).

So this looks like the Binghamton DMA has gone HD?

That would seem to be the case, yes.

Cool, i've got friends and family there, could be some Club Dish referrals in my future at least for those that don't care about RSN's anyway.

Hmmm.....just called someone in Binghamton who has Hopper & HD w/ Dish to see if they're seeing those HD locals yet. Says not yet of course I suppose it's possible someone might not see them until the next time their receiver gets an overnight update.

They would have to be on the eastern arc...  And they would then have no choice but to see them, as the SD versions of those HD locals were removed at the same time the HD ones were added (per the uplink James posted).

And now that you point that out, I bet they are on WARC. Guess that'll have to be dealt with, probably not until Dish actually acknowleges that they've done it, so far no official announcement from them confirming it.

Just a heads up ... The Binghamton, NY locals just went HD today. Yippy!

 

...

 

Oops - I see that information was actually posted already. My browser cach wasn't showing the update so I thought I was first with the news. Anyway, I'm a happy Dish Customer now.

That is how we noticed the change. Our timers all stopped working when the SD versions went away.

That's the only bad thing in these situations.. it would really be nice if Dish programmed in a way to automatically fix timers when they make changes of this nature since it would be an easy "assumption" to update all the timers for the newly added HD channels after they remove your SD ones.  If you were out of town for the weekend or more, you might miss a bunch of stuff before you got back to make the fix yourself.
