I suppose it is possible that channel 5 itself was having a broadcast issue, and those of us with the channel already scanned might not have noticed. Every one in a while the channel ID data gets funky and they have to tweak something.
I have had channels some nights that will lose their "virtual" channel and revert to the actual broadcast channel # instead... but that doesn't happen very often.

They now have both 4-2 and 4-3 showing the same EPG data for the UNC-EX channel... whereas 4-2 should of course be showing UNC-KD programming.
Not sure when this will be fixed, but I let them know about it as soon as I noticed. Here's hoping it is a priority, because anyone with kids is probably missing some recordings from 4-2 now!

Also, here's an update of what channels have wrong or missing OTA EPG data:
4.2 continues to have UNC-EX data instead of UNC-KD data.
22.2 does not yet have proper data.
30.1 continues to have data for what is actually on 30.2
30.2 does not yet have proper data.
47.1 does not yet have proper data.
47.2 does not yet have proper data.
47.3 does not yet have proper data.
While these have all been reported to Dish, there has been no movement as yet to address any of these known EPG issues for our OTA data problems.

4.2 Updated to reflect "No" since Dish has screwed up the OTA EPG data for UNC Kids and doesn't seem to want to fix it
22.2 Changed name to proper "The Country Network" name for this new sub-channel.
28.2 is a new channel TheCoolTV, which is another 24/7 music video channel.

Added channel 30.3 -> TCT Family
Changed 50.2 to MeTV (Memorable Entertainment Television).. It appears RTV is gone now in favor of MeTV which is sort of similar.
Also added a bunch of network links to the sub-channels that have Web pages. Local Raleigh Web sites are linked where they exist, while the others are the network affiliated Web sites.
If anyone sees anything wrong or that I've missed, let me know...

If someone can confirm who gets this channel more reliably, that would be appreciated.

Stewart - you have it listed right in the first post. It looks to be English programming with Spanish audio translation on 30-04.

Updated the table in post #1 since the site update killed the old table format. I also made some changes to the table that I believe were needed due to some recent OTA broadcast changes. I no longer am able to receive all of these channels via OTA, though, so some data I am unable to verify. Please send me a private message if you see something wrong/omitted from the table in post #1 and I will attend to it ASAP. Thanks!

Thanks to Scooper for double-checking my work and finding some things to add...
40.3 added as Bounce TV, complete with link to the Bounce TV Web site.
47.4 added as Shop at Home, also with link to their Web site.
I do not know if some of these, especially the newer adds, have EPG with Dish (though my guess is not) so if anyone knows of available Dish EPG data for any of the OTA channels where I indicate "No" please let me know. I cannot receive many of these so have to rely on other local viewers' corrections or Web searches.

Did a re-scan tonight and as a result made some changes to the table...
40.1 appears to be 720p now and not 1080i like it used to be.
40.2 now appears to be 720p instead of the 480i it used to be.
40.4 is getTV, another classic TV show/movie channel and one that I had not heard of somehow until tonight. A link to the getTV Web site is part of the info in the table.
47.5 is QVC Over the Air
47.6 is HSN
22.2 seems to no longer exist as a channel.
30.4 also seems to no longer exist as a channel.
If anyone in this DMA sees any errors or omissions from the table please let me know.

Thanks to Scooper double-checking my work... I put 22.2 "The Country Network" back in the table. Not sure why it didn't scan on my receiver the other night, could have been a glitch. I actually can't get 22 or 28 at the moment OTA, so I can't verify again.
