Dish Network added only one local HD channel in the Greenville Washington New Bern NC market.

WNCT-DT 9 CBS HD

Missing are WITN-DT 7 NBC HD
WFXI-DT 8 FOX HD
WCTI-DT 12 ABC HD (home of DISH'S local receive facility)
WUNM-DT 19 UNC/PBS HD

Directv is planning on launch in this market for January 09. They just started construction on a new building for its local receive site in Greenville NC at the WNCT studios, where they also house the SD locals facility.

Madison, WI is in the same boat. Only the local FOX affiliate is in HD.

Are ther OTA signals for the missing stations also not HD, or is this an E* retransmission dispute issue? I know that another market (Erie, PA) has at least one station that REFUSES to go HD.

In Madison, WI it must be a retransmission dispute issue. We are all HD OTA here.

hi! I'm new to the Greenville, Washington, New Bern market...

I hooked up my OTA antenna to the 722k HD DVR.... went through setup and forced program guide download a few times....... as far as I can tell, most local OTA HD channels are showing up just fine...

however, the guide data for OTA channel 25.1, which I believe is PBS / UNC TV (HD OTA), just says "Digital Service" with no program information.... :( no matter how many times I force the guide download, it never says anything else... :(

is it the same thing for your Dish receivers?

Thanks for your help! :)
