    Likewise here in San Francisco. We now have back what we had under L216 and lost with L218 - all the sub-channel guide info for KQED (9.1-.5), and KCSM (43.1 and .2).

    Well done Eldon! (now please, don't take it away again).

    Cheers,
    -Keith

    Rebooted after L219 downloaded and lost all but two OTA DTV channels (26, KTSF and 65,KKPX both independent local channels) also the ability to add lost DTVs back. I subscribe to locals. Can't get them via scan or one at a time. I had the following OTAs including all sub-channels before the L219 "improvement":
    002 KTVU FOX
    004 KRON IND
    005 KPIX CBS
    007 KGO ABC
    009 KQED PBS
    020 KBWB 2B

    So, any ideas? How about you Mark?

    All Sutro tower digital TV transmissions are off today and tomorrow 9am-4pm or so for testing. KTSF and KKPX both transmit from Mt. San Bruno.

    Cheers,

    I got back my 08-01 guide data for the national HD PBS channel, which I never had that had for like 215 or whatever it was and then lost. Glad to have it back now. Haven't seen anything else yet.

    Boylehome, we have the same TV you do? What size is yours?

    Yep, thanks for the pic. My 921 doesn't have anything other than connection, dial-out, hard drive.

    I'm in the SF Bay Area and 219 has also rationed me now to 4 obscure OTA channels. But they are not the same ones as Bpauld's! That would be too simple, right?

    So after losing channel information on KQED's channels in a previous update, now this. I really had no major problems as of earlier versions. Why release something that is worse than previous versions? Is Dish using Microsoft Windows programmers, or what?

    I'm probably like many of you - just going to get a bit more use out of my 921 since it cost so much and then switch to some other provider. At least Comcast have the Giants in HD...

    All the best to other long suffering 921 users....

    John, if you'd read the rest of the thread, you'd know that all of the Sutro tower stations were off line today, so your problem has nothing to do with the 921.

    So boylehome I wonder why you have these extra diagnostics on that screen. Has anyone else seen them?

    My Pani is a 50''. Love it.

    Well, no change with the missing guide data from 2.13. This is getting real frustrating as I am ready to chuck this POS out the window. Also I have noticed since 2.18 that 4:3 material and commercials during HD broadcasts in 1080i mode are not centered to the screen anymore. Everything seems shifted almost 1.5 inches to the right :mad: Regarding the channel guide, I am getting alot of cut and paste practice with this. As such...

    Regrettably, I am disappointed to report again that 219 did nothing to resolve the OTA missing guide data as below. Still not working for all the NO channels since 212, which was fully populated except for the local PBS-HD (WNED.

    Market: Buffalo, New York market with a subscription to the dish locals.

    With L212 I had ALL OTA data for all the below locals except WNED for which I never had any data. Strangely, I am receiving guide data in the sub channel for WNED 43-1.

    Station - Call Letters - Guide Data received...

    002-01 wgrz No
    004-01 wivb No
    007-01 wkbw Yes
    023-01 wnlo Yes
    029-01 wutv Yes
    049-01 wnyo No
    043-1 wned No
    043-2 wned Yes!

    Canadian (not subscribed to) but received OTA
    005-1 CKX1 No
    015-1 CKXT-No

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Damian

    ebaltz, that is a good question. One of the tests, "HDCP Test" is a mystery. It performs a test to verify HDCP operation. When I performed this test, dialog appears that says, "Enabling HDCP-Screen will Flicker." After the screen flickers I get, "Error finding HDCP enabled receiver."

    It seems strange that I have these extra test procedures considering that the 921 receiver information is the same as others. This software download was more than just an OTA fix here. All seems to be working pretty well so far.

    Now it is time to be alert for the remaining bug problems like stuck aspect stretch, zsr, and the other problems in hope for improvement.

    219 did not fix the OTA Guide problem for my 921. I still have no guide information for NBC (27, remap 4.1,4.2) CBS (39, remap 9.1) or PBS (32, remap 13.1,13.2,13.3.13.4). I noticed no other differences either. This was yet another dissapointment.

    No Local Guide info in Oklahoma City....

    I am now able to see and hear KSMO-62.1 (WB) in Kansas City. Under 218 (and maybe for some time before, I can't remember), 62.1 would lock in at 103 (+/-) signal strength, but no video or audio.

    However, still no EPG info for:
    KCWE-29.1
    KCPT-19.1 (National PBS HD)
    KCPT-19.2 (Local PBS main channel)
    KPXE-50.1
    KPXE-50.2
    KPXE-50.3
    KPXE-50.4

    Note: KPXE does not appear in the 8xxx range, either (the channel, I mean) I didn't realize this before. It doesn't really matter to me - I don't watch it.

    Interesting - Dish swapped my receivers over the weekend, on L218 last week when I was working with the Dish 921 team on the phone, my list of diagnostic tests were the expanded version that Boylehome has illustrated. Last night - new reciever (both were HEED) and L219 I have the shortened version of test options. Could it be that somehow the diagnostic tests are context sensitive and you get one version or the other depending upon where you were in navigation when you launched the diagnostics screen ?

    Guys, posting guide data problems in this thread will do you no good, and your posts will get lost over time. They really need to be posted in the guide data tracking thread to ensure they get seen by the right people.

    Mark, are you saying that L219 is not about guide data in OTA?

    No, that's not what I'm saying. L219 did fix one issue with OTA guide data. I'm saying that if you post your guide data problem in this thread, rather than in the thread that we are using to track the guide data problems, it will get lost and not recorded.

    Umm..I checked the software update screen and and says that the download is in progress...for over seven hours? It's "15 of 30"...

    I guess I need to say a little prayer and pull the plug.

    Any suggestions other than that?
