Does anyone know when Dish will add HD locals in Columbus, OH? Have they discussed this at all? Seems like a big market to leave without this service.

They aren't on the list at the moment (neither is Louisville, Indy, Cinci, Dayton, Youngstown, Charleston). Your best bet is to "move" to Cleveland.

I don't think Cleveland will cover the Buckeyes the way Columbus will. :)

I just "moved" to Cleveland from Columbus (North of the city, Delaware area) and I get a message when I tune to a local HD channel that says:

"Sorry for the interruption. There is no need to call us. We are working to have this channel back as soon as possible. You may still watch non-local programming by pressing the GUIDE button on your remote control and selecting another channel."

I have a "wing" pointed at 61.5, and even covered up my 129, but I still cannot get rid of this screen. I have 60-70 on most of the transponders, so I am not sure if the spot is tighter than I would expect, I need Dish to "re-hit" my receivers, or they are truly having issues.

I live less than 30 miles south of the Cleveland DMA, so I am perplexed.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you are getting the message on your local channels, there is a problem between the locals and Dish and there is nothing wrong with your system. If they do not come back soon, call Dish and ask what is happening.
