It isn't Hopper-specific...  Basically anyone with Dish and one of their OTA-capable receivers that lives in the same DMA as you should be able to answer the question.

 

We have some threads here in our Dish OTA forum where some have created posts that list OTA channels and available EPG data.  I don't know if there is one for your DMA or not.  I created one for my DMA in Raleigh, NC long ago... and though it might be slightly out of date as I haven't revisited it in a while, it is fairly representative of what is available for others in my area.

mnassour,

 

Stewart Vernon provided you with accurate information in regards to the Sub-Channels. Once scanned in, you should have the title listings and information for these channels.

 

There is a possibility that some of the information will not register and you may see a DISH slate on the guide.

 

Thanks

That's kind of what I'm afraid of...and I haven't been able to find anyone locally who has the adapter.  I may have to start an Austin topic in the OTA forum if I can't get anything from elsewhere.

Well, it isn't the same adapter... but the adapter has nothing to do with whether or not you see EPG data.

 

Dish has a few different types of OTA adapters across their different models of receivers right now... but they all draw from the same satellite-delivered information... so that's why I was saying anyone with Dish in your DMA who uses OTA through their Dish receiver could answer.
