Well now I just need Oklahoma City then I will be a happy camper. But they really dont have too many left on the list for this year. It seems Dish is getting things up fast so far.

Is it Mpegs or Programming ?

Looked for HD locals for Portland on my 6000 Receiver and
Dish500+61. Is it just a matter of calling Dish and getting
it added or is the 6000 not compatible with mpeg4?

E* has not even contacted the local stations.

And they don't need to. Carry deals are worked out with the company that owns the station. The signal is usually picked up at the local POP (point of presence) and in a lot of cases the station has no idea that their feed is available on the satellite until someone tells them (a viewer or, in a lot of cases, one of their engineers) or they see a press release about the carriage. This is the way it was for SD and very likely the way it is (or will be) for HD local feeds.

I wonder how long it will be until the Pittsburgh local HD channels will be added. Hopefully they will be active by the start of football season.

After a DMA is uplinked how far behind is the actual availability to the subs? Sac is uplinked but not available. Thanks

Any kind of date on these future planned HD Locals?

Sac was available for me, except fox, on thursday 5/11. I assume you have a mpeg4 receiver.

I do have the 622 but I will not be home until next week to check this out. Will the HD locals show up on the HD list along with the OTA channels? Thanks for the info.
