CBS HD waiver from 2 affiliates?

Dish is telling me that I need a waiver from 2 different CBS affiliates. I am in a fairly remote area that has no actual locals, but is serviced by translator stations. I've contacted Nielson and found out that my DMA is Amarillo Tx. Dish is wanting me to get a waiver from both Amarillo and Albequerque NM CBS affiliates. Amarillo is 100 miles from me and Alb is over 200. I do get both CBS channels off translator, but neither directly OTA. Is this right? I've tried to read thru SHVIRA and SHEVRA(sp?) but have only found what I wanted (of course). Am I off my rocker, or do I only need a waiver from my "local" network.

If you get them by translator, then they "serve" you and you need waivers from both, as Dish says...
