    Channel Request OAN

    You must have a special Roku box. On mine it's $4.99 a month. And if it ever does show up on Dish, IMO, it'll be in the mostly redundant News Pack, in order to make it slightly less so. Or maybe in the News Pack and as a separate add-on for $5 a month, like The Blaze was.

    Hopper 3

    Oh boy! A list your first receiver thread! 3000, October 1996, right after the price dropped from $500 to $300. Dish replace it in January '98 when they bricked a bunch of them during an update.

    My Dish Experience

    OK, after 51 posts, I think I have the answer, but not the solution to the OP's problem. Bozeman20 is watching FOX on KWYB-LD, a low power repeater of KWYB, Butte, owned by the Cowles Company of Spokane, WA. KWYB's main channel is an ABC affiliate airing in 720p on 28-1 It has two sub-channels...

    [Massachusetts] Herstige Rock Station Sold to EMF

    Sad to see it go. Back in the day (1972 to 1977), I would frequently drive between South Jersey and Central Maine. What a blowtorch of a signal it had! I would tune in just east of Hartford and listen all the way to the cheap liquor store in Portsmouth NH. Enjoyed the view of the xmitter...

    Local Fox channel guide data wrong.

    Without NBC (and local) listings, manual recordings are the only option on KHQ 006-01. I emailed KHQ a few years ago, but never got a response. I have also had a couple of instances of recording errors with the Hopper 3 where I set up a recording on the primary channel (say KXLY 004-01) and...

    Local Fox channel guide data wrong.

    Apparently, Dish does. Especially if, as you say, Dish uses the Data from Rovi, which is available if you pony up 12 bucks a month.

    Local Fox channel guide data wrong.

    So I guess NBC is considered a "lesser local sub-channel" in the Spokane market?

    Your Fox affiliate must have started a dispute during the game. :)

    Local Fox channel guide data wrong.

    ....and it's not only sub channels. The OTA guide info for the NBC affiliate in my market, Spokane, has had nothing but "KHQ-HD" on channel 006-01 for at least the past six years. On the other hand, their sub channel "SWX", has complete and accurate listings. Ironically, the very sub channel...
