Tell me if this isn't just messed up. Here's a few problems with the EPG for digital OTA's here in Sac, CA. The guide data for PBS here is totally inaccurate. CBS is just an annoyance.

1.) Electronic guide data for KVIE PBS channel 6 and subchannels is incorrect and/or missing.

2.) Electronic guide data for KOVR CBS channel 13 is listed only for the subchannel.
