Disappointed to not see the Montgomery, AL locals in this batch. I know DISH said sometime in March but, I'm just really hopping early March rather then later.

A bit odd, but Dish has nothing to do with your guide info. It's provided by Tribune. Dish probably wouldn't be that obvious anyways. Maybe the movie channels are doing some maintenance during that period?

Not odd at all. In the past when lots of things were being moved around Dish displayed Off Air on the channels. We even used this method of predicting which markets were going from CONUS to spotbeam for the night several weeks ago.

So, what happened then? Where's the evidence? I don't see anything new! And no uplink report to support that!

That is not correct.

There is plenty of bandwidth available for all the National HD channels that people are asking for.

Once Ciel-2 came online, any bandwidth restraints ended.

The only possible reason for not turning on National HD is marketing.

Kstuart,

IMO = In my opinion.

Since we don't know the real reason why they haven't launched any National HD channels, your "opinion" about marketing being the reason could be incorrect too. ;)
I believe he was offering an educated opinion of the most likely case and since he knows his sh*t about this stuff, he's probably right.:) Historically Dish has no qualms about not rushing to meet previously implied commitments if they can make a few more cents by holding back longer. They have always pushed the "customer frustration" limit to the edge.

So, what happened then? Where's the evidence? I don't see anything new! And no uplink report to support that!

Sometimes channels are uplinked but with no data for that channel in the steam (and thus no uplink report.)

For example last week there was one channel that could be picked up with a FTA receiver that has been reported to me was testing BET Jazz for a few minutes then went back to a Dish logo and music.

I dont believe that this channel has been reported on an uplink report as the data was never added to the data stream.

In the past there have been channels uplinked under the TMP channels and before they launched started getting guide data, and while the channel was named TMP1 the guide data gave away what the channel was. And on uplink day they just changed the channel name to its real name.

If you are interested in this stuff and want to see stuff like the raw guide data get a copy of a great piece of software called TSReader and a DVB tuner card.

Its amazing what you can see and find if you try.

I should also point out that all this stuff is in the clear, you are not hacing anything by accessing this data. All the data is sent in the clear as Dish uses the DVB standard and for DVB to work all that info must be sent out in the clear.

Reno Locals finally!
The only thing about PBS HD in Reno is that I'm not picking it up OTA. It could be that they just put it on another digital sub channel and replaced it with a Spanish PBS

Ditto here. They need to get on Slide Mountain like the other stations. Their on-channel repeater on Sugarloaf, north of Carson City isn't effective where I live.
