    The following HD channels disappeared from my custom guide filter a couple days ago:
    11
    20
    26

    I do not know what happened, but I re-added them and all is fine now.

    Anything we can do to push for the updating of the databases to re-map the correct WCIU sub-channels? I e-mailed Zap2it and they replied that they would look into but still no love.

    Tribune Media is updated for WCIU and the subchannels

    WCIU 26-1, 26-2, 26-3, 26-4 are all showing up in the guide
    26-5 says "channel not available" and you cannot even manually tune it. The AM-21 box won't let you. D*'s channel mappings are out of sync with Tribune Media.

    This issue is a month old. Please fix promptly.
    I have called D* multiple times and exchanged 8 emails already. Most of the replies came from people who did not have a clue what a subnchannel was.

    Yikes.

    You need to go DIRECTLY to WCIU & talk w/an engineer there. THEY have MORE interest in getting THEIR signal to work properly than D* does. They should be able to contact someone directly at TMS, which should automatically fix D*'s database. (I guarantee you it's probably affecting other providers that use TMS for their guide database)

    I did it this way with one of our local PBS's & they had it fixed within 3 days & it's been fine since then...

    I thought I was the only one who noticed this. Apparently I am not alone. Yes, I have experienced this for several days now.

    I have noticed it also. It seems to happen at the top of the hour and also at the bottom of the hour generally during ABC network programming. Two or three video blackouts each time. It does not happen via ota, only on DirecTv. It does not happen on Comcast either.
