In other discussions it was stated that program information would come down from Dish for locals obtained over the air. A few questions:

1. Will this guide info come down for those that don't subscribe to locals (I would hope so)

2. Would guide info be provided for locals that Dish does not carry?

3. Would ALL digital stations be represented?

4. What if you have more than one DMA available to you, will you be able to get the various DMAs?

5. Would all subchannels be represented in multicasting stations?

6. Will all this be working upon release of 811/921?

In another thread, Scott explained that you simply type in the call letters of the station and the guide info will be linked in... but noone has seen this yet :)

These are important features to know when deciding to make the jump... also to be comfortable in dropping locals from Dish (which I am sure they are NOT anxious to see, but do they make money on them??)

I am in one DMA, but I can get Two station for a nearby DMA just fine.

The two in the other DMA are in a real small DMA and wont be on Dish for a long time.

I wonder if they will work?
