Well, I got home all fired up about this update. Now I can't get my CBS OTA Digital feed to show up in the program guide. I can do Add DTV in the locals and it locks at 90%. Then I hit save and it's gone. Anybody else having a similar problem? It was fine yesterday. :rolleyes:

CBS worked fine for me yesterday as well. I just checked it and the signal was bouncing from 49% to 90% then back to 49% and would drop. I moved my antenna just a little bit and it is coming in clear now. I never removed it from the locals though.

My Digital Locals were working fine before the update, after reading your post I tuned to 11-1 (CBS broadcast on 19) and it worked fine. But when I tuned to another channel and checked the guide it was gone. I put it back, tuned to it again looked fine, signal at about 90%, but when I tune away it is removed from the guide. This is the only channel that it happens on.

I assume it has something to do with the PSIP data and something that Dish changed in the up-grade to 262. This really annoying now.

Ok, I played around with the guide some more and CBS disappeared from the guide like you two experienced. I rescanned and it showed up as 19-01 on the guide and has stayed since.

Sorry to hear you haven't received yours yet StevenD. When you get it it will be worth the wait. I have had a steady stream of guests since Saturday checking it out and everyone has come away impressed.

Guderian,
I too have have lost CBS channel 11 from the guide. I did a rescan, and like you, it comes up as 19-01. It looks like the channel mapping is messed up. It use to map OK prior to this new release.

I can also see it mapped as 19-01 but I can't see it in the guide. I'll try again tonight but I'm pretty sure my guide view was all channels.

I am too losing the OTA CBS. It worked fine before the upgrade. I will try and do rescan tonight and see if that helps.

I would have worked on it last night but went and saw LOTR-Return of the King. Awesome flick.

Check out the Dallas Home Theater Group (http://dhtg.napurano.com/).
Many of the local broadcasting engineers participate and there are a number of topics dealing with channel 11 coming up as 19-1 over the last few weeks.
