well, I called dish and added locals, I figured I could use the SD locals on TV2 and what happened, I got guide data on my OTA.... I guess you have to subscribe to your locals in order to get the guide info on the new firmware.
I guess L289 isn't much of a blessing, the only thing I have noticed is the having to sub locals to get guide data on ota locals.
That sucks. No way am I going to pay $5/month just for the OTA guide data LOL. Is there a way to revert to a previous firmware? I'm guessing no. Wouldn't surprise me if they turned off the OTA capability altogether with a future firmware update unless you want to pay for locals or the "HD enabling" BS fee.
