Is there a fix to get the guide info for the ota subchannels? Really like the comet channel but can't ever schedule recordings

There doesn't seem to be a fix, so to speak. You could look at another guide, Titantv or comettv.com, and then set manual recordings based on what you'd like to watch....

It's still a valid thread. The original date has no bearing on the core issue. It's had (9) add'l posts in the past 4-5 days too.

Every so often, someone would ask the others in that thread if their issue was resolved and in almost all cases, it was not, so the original posts from members reporting the issue(s) they had are still likely valid.

This is a little of an exception to the rule I do see many threads revived that shouldn't be but especially with the renewed interest in OTA the info is relevant.
There should be an expedited way to get problems like one of the big networks moving and then having no guide info fixed, that was posted yesterday in that thread.

Pick up one of the cheapie $35~ OTA dvr's from Amazon, plug in your antenna and an external hard-drive, and you'll get guide data right from the channel. Don't wait for Dish to provide guide data, as it'll likely never happen.

Here's one, but there's a few others if you look: Amazon product

Free Titan Tv app has all my guide information for my ota channels and sub channels. Just wish that DISH would add that free app to the hopper 3 for us to use it in place of the guide data from the satellite.

Or use a PC running Windows 7. Connect OTA antenna, run Windows Media Center, and it will give you guide info
