    With the Tribune dispute, Fox8 is unavailable in the Cleveland Ohio area. I already have a roof top antenna and get Fox8 using that, but I want to be able to record as well. If I purchase the usb OTA adapter, will the Fox8 OTA guide data be available, or is that shut down due to the dispute?

    Typically DISH pulls the EPG with the local channels ... but this time they have uplinked EPG channels to replace the locals so you should get EPG for your recordings.

    In my area CBS (Channel 12) has been blocked out. But, I have a roof top antenna and get the same channel (Channel 12.1) from the antenna through the OTA Adapter. The program guide is still there for Channel 12.1. No problems.
