I had P156 and that did the LIL channel mapping, anyone know what P157 does?
This appears to be by design. My 5000 and 2800 both will only show the current show and the next show on any given channel until I activate the guide and the downloading begins. Because they can only see data on the transponder I am watching, I think that Dish transmits current+next data for the entire guide on all transponders to allow for browsing. I have noticed that when I watch A&E or The History Channel (both on the same transponder as the 44hr program guide) my 2800 will have the full guide filled in when I switch to it, otherwise it only has current+next times and gradually fills in the rest. I think my 5000 can't do this because it is older.Originally posted by Z'Loth
Now, if they can fix the caching problems with the program guide. Right now, it will only store an hours worth of progam guide, even though the EKB says that the non-PVR receivers should hold 46 hours.
