The funniest thing about this is when Dish had the Pal Plus Dvr for ota , I had psip data on all channels . So it can be done for their receivers if they wanted to. They just choose not to do it. What happens when and if they upgrade to the latest new ota standard 3.0 for delivery of a 4K signals? We will then need new ota dongles again and they probably will not have any guide data, unless DISH orders it.

Keep in mind that PSIP goes away with ATSC 1. ATSC 3 has something fancier, “Signaling and Announcement” about which I know next to nothing. I’m not even sure how much of it goes OTA and how much via broadband.

Supposedly will make much fancier EPGs possible. Considering how little broadcasters seem to care about PSIP today, I see ?little reason to expect them to make extra efforts in the future.

Why do you KEEP posting the same thing over and over in a thread that has nothing to do whatsoever with what you are talking about? Now, if by "nothing [to] offer" you mean additional / corrected OTA guide data, then you may have a point, but you need to be more specific and / or post in an appropriate thread.

Have you rescanned?
Yes, several times. Since KPTV/KPDX did a repack 12.1/49.1 on our translator, there is no guide for either. There is the OTA guide that goes out a few hours on the TV, but no guides from Dish and KPTV is the FOX station. KPDX is MYTV.

What happens when you try to register on Dish's site? For some reason, their site would not let me start a new thread about this issue, so I ended up posting in the existing thread about guide data issues in general. At first, I even had trouble trying to get that posted, but eventually it let me post.

Several OTA stations in my market recently repacked. For example, our Fox affiliate now technically broadcasts on the same frequency as the PBS station.

Since the repack, the repacked stations now show incorrect data in my program guide on my Hopper 3.

So, I’m seeing programs twice for my PBS station in my grid. One under their correct call letters, and the other is under the call letters of the Fox affiliate.

Any known way to fix this?

That will stay that way until Dish updates their program guide. That is where the OTA comes from

Time to reach for the can of Troll Be Gone.

Beats me, Scott. I really don't think he's a deliberate "troll" in the conventional internet sense, but there is something for sure "not right" about him. He's all across the internet on various forums, and he's totally consistent in what to us are/seem to be nonsense posts.

Yes he is. Mental difficulties or not, that is EXACTLY what he is. He lives under a bridge.
