I just checked, got the update and now have OTA guide information. Looks pretty good.
CAID is the receiver number (R00xxxxxxxx) of the receiver. Example, CAID R0012345678.
Do you subscribe to dish locals?
I did not get my download either......Oh wait...... I SOLD my 921 already & switched BACK to cable since they offer BETTER HD programming! I also do not have to pay for a POS receiver.
The Search feature isn't fully fixed yet. It still has the hanging yellow outline that stays in one location and when moving through the list it seems to drag in the same direction. With Search Results there is a really cool emblem for terrestrial. The search feature works much faster!
WooHoo,, I got it. Just deleted my locals and gave it a 5 min power break. Rebooting now. Only think I am hoping for is that it locks the locals quicker when changing between channels.
Wow...that's great! How nice for you.
Please, let's try and keep this thread on topic. Perhaps Rob will be kind enough to delete his post, and I'll be happy to do the same.
Mike, I'm in north Arkansas, Lake Norfork, about 72 miles from transmit towers and I get NBC, PBS and KY3's second channel (17), but now I have no guide data for any, Mark says give it 24 hours so I will, How far are you from transmit towers, wondering why you can't receive the other OTA's that are on low power? guess you are far enough away also.
Here comes the next wave!! Lite is blinking!
2:00 pm Pac. time
Any body know how the Inactivity Mode works (4 Preferences, 7 Inactivity Mode)?
P1$$eD Off. Didn't get it. So Mark, how does this process actually work. Are you saying it will take two weeks for the next release cycle to spool and the rest of us will get it at that time. Or is the two week window the amount of time it takes to incrementally spool it say 10,000 units at a time until complete. Is there a chance some will get it in a day or two while others may take two weeks.
Yes, I subscribe to Dish Locals. I assume that is how I got the OTA guide information.
You spool 10,000 people and wait a week (or two) for unexpected problems (bugs). If all is quiet you spool the rest.
This also helps keeps a manageable load on customer support if people have problems.
They could update all the boxes at once, it's just safer not to.
I received 215 this afternoon. Just checked my OTA channels and they have guide info!! I do NOT subscribe to my locals so this info is coming from PSIP I assume.
I don't think it is coming from PSIP. MOst likely from Dish's stream Could they be doing what the 811 does in terms of EPG data?
Well, everything is up and running. Did a rescan of locals and found them all. Interesting item this time around though. I am used to all the sub channels just showing local programming in the guide, but now I have a couple main ones that are showing that and their subs are showing show info. Weird, but will give it 24hours and see if anything changes. The channels are locking much faster though which is a very good thing.
I got it. I found nothing broke. I didnt have the problems like most but was worried about it being worse after this update.
No update here.
You guys play beta tester for the next few weeks and when you say it works without breaking stuff, I'll be ready.
Besides, today would have been a bad day in NE FL for any sat transmission. The weather was like 3 inches of rain all day. I'm sure the dish signal was intermittent all day.
The only thing different that I have noticed so far, is that when I am in guide and have the
program picture in the right hand corner, I then hit 003 on the remote (or some other OTA channel number like 006) they guide goes to 101, not 003. Before the update, the guide
would go to 003. Never 101. But I now have guide information.
Did not get guide information for one Philadelphia Channel, WHYY, Channel 12, main PBS station. I have OTA 012-1 and 012-2, but no guide information.
I am not getting guide information for any of the sub OTA channels, for example 006-2, 006-3, but I can live with that. However, I understand that guide information is available for many of the sub channels through PSIP.
