ASK Dish: Local Digital Ratings (without mapped guide data)
Posted 26 March 2006 - 11:42 AM
Is there any way to change the default rating for local digital channels that don't have guide data?
(Of course, the 622 could just use the PSIP data that is on the channel )

I wonder what the law says regarding program ratings. Arn't ratings required by law and doesn't the FCC require those ratings to be part of the epg information that's supposed to be provided within the PSIP data stream? If it is, then Dish my be in violation of some kind when it restricts that PSIP data from being passed on.
The TV ratings system is a voluntary program created by the TV industry itself. Much like the ratings system instituted by the motion picture industry, this was a pre-emptive action to keep the government out of it.

But this makes me think of a feature request. I'll put it in another thread....
