Thanks for the info.

9427 doesn't show up in my guide. If I enter it directly I get a message asking me to pay to receive channel 9467. (And no, I didn't miss-type it. I tried several times watching carefully what was showing up on the screen as I entered it.)

It may be another one of these stupid blackout rights issues. Maybe the local NBC channel in the San Francisco Bay Area has blocked Dish from sending the national feed since they offer the local OTA. Fortunately, I can receive it, but I'm sure there are many who can't.


We get it just fine. Excellent quality video and audio, just boring content.

Thank you for clearing up the difference!
So for you VIP's do you see both channels (that is if you have a VIP pointing at a "wing sat")? If so this may be a golden opportunity to compair MPEG4 with MPEG2.
