* It would cost too much to implement the software. (Despite the fact the $150 TV you get at Wal*Mart can decode and display PSIP data, it would cost too much to program into Dish's receivers)
You've got to remember that the OTA receiver Dish uses is available (with software) from Amazon. It's not rocket science. There is already code that understands how to get PSIP info from these USB dongles. There is a chip manufacturer that has this part in their catalog and probably has a demo board with software to start development. I just can't figure out who makes it and I'm not going to gut mine to find out.
