    For Sioux Falls, SD on Dish....

    36-00 KSFY-2 is The CW Network (Not ABC)

    38-00 KWSD is MeTv, one of the few cases where MeTv is locally the 01 subchannel.

    Salt Lake...
    DISH just enabled a Second-Audio PID (A-PID 53) for KSL-TV, in the Salt Lake City DMA.
    This allows KSL to broadcast Spanish translation of "Music and the Spoken Word", as well as pass the Descriptive Video Service from certain NBC programming.

    Cool. I wish I could say every subchannel audio that is available is picked up. It is good to see it done.

    I mentioned to the Echostar engineer, that there were a couple of other locals passing DVS. He said that the individual station's engineer just needs to call the Locals Engineering Department in Cheyenne, and they will turn them on. Took about one minute to switch ours.
    (Hint to other stations... :righton: )

    James now that I have my locals restored under dish /raycom agreement I'm still wondering why dish didn't uplink my Wlox2 -Cbs in hd last month when we got the other locals in hd. Wlox says they are feeding hd signal to dish direct tv at&t uverse and cable one yet its a virtual sub channel in sd on ota . I know my neighbor is getting Wlox2-Cbs in hd on direct Tv. I'm pleased to be getting locals in hd now but its Weird we are getting everything in hd but Cbs any idea?

    DISH generally carries what is broadcast. If it isn't HD OTA it isn't HD on DISH.

    If DISH is getting a special HD feed from the station perhaps it will be carried in the future. But in general, if it isn't OTA it isn't on DISH.

    72 does not have local stations. One needs 72 and 61.5 or 72 and 77 to get their local stations.

    There are also a few national HD channels and a lot of national SD channels on 61.5.

    James - Thanks for putting that up !

    Would you know if BOTH 72 and 61.5 are needed to get local - I have both (long story), but presently don't have a switch.

    Thanks!

    There are no local markets on 72 ... 72 is needed for most non-local channels.

    Thanks James - I know, that's why I pointed a dish at 61.5.

    The program guide lists all the local channels - but none of them come in. All the other channels come in fine.

    Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem.

    Colorado...
    KWHS-LD 51 and COZI TV 51.2 is up and running in Colorado Springs When I emailed one of the workers over there about why Dish Network does not carry KWHS, he responded that he tried with no luck. Originally KWHD was a Denver station (LeSea Broadcasting) and has expanded in my area, as many stations do that around the country.
    Wonder if there is another way to alert Dish to add this local? I can now see more hours a day of COZI than what is on channel 82.

    It's a low powered station so Dish doesn't have to carry them and they can't use must carry to get on the lineup like full powered stations.

    I am not sure how close you live to Denver, but channel 25 also offers COZI, it is 25.3 (25.1 is Telemundo). It is a full power station with transmitter in Firestone.

    DISH rarely carries sub-channels, so your best bet is an antenna.

    I do get channel 26 and 28, which are low powered stations, in Denver, 40 miles away from here in Longmont. So, it is possible an antenna will work for you. I do it with an amplified flat antenna. I manage to receive about 45 main and sub-channels here (2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12, 14, 20, 25, 26, 28, 31, 38, 50, and 59). I also have received 10, 22, 23, 33 and 41), but very low signal on those.

    This is not the world's greatest problem, however, I have been wondering for quite some time why WNIN-TV Virtual Channel 9; RF Channel 9, Evansville, IN, maps down as Channel 12 on the Dish Channel Guide. WNIN has always been on channel 9.
    It would be kind of nice to see this small glitch corrected.

    FYI; I emailed this question to Dish customer support on May 7th and got no response of any kind.
