as has already been suggested, the best way for the original poster to deal with this issue is to "move" to some adjoining market. basically this entails calling up dish and lying about where you live in order to receive locals from a different market.

this issue is unrelated to the ongoing DNS issue. dish network does not carry an abc affiliate in your market. so to get one, you need to tell them that you "moved" your dish and all receivers to your vacation home in the market where you want locals.

it takes about 2 minutes for the new channels to show up after a "move". your guide isn't updated immediately but if you care, you can force an update on the guide by doing the check switch test.

i think this guy chose his parent's address because they live in that market.

other people just add a non-existent apartment number to the address of a fast food restaurant. the address you choose doesn't have to exist -- it just has to work in the computer. and the computer only keeps track of acceptable ranges of addresses (much like the postal service).

on some roads, the addresses jump in increments of 10. if you pick an address in the middle that ends with a 5, it'll work in the computer and you'll be assured that you won't conflict with a real subscriber at some real location.
