I noticed that the guide for OTA locals started working on my Vip 211 today. Was there a software upgrade? I don't subscribe to local channels. Is anyone else getting the guide information now?

Same thing happened to me on my 942 today. Not sure what's going on, but I'm not complaining. Hope it's not a glitch, & gone tomorrow.

Could be related to the free preview of locals that you should be receiving until the end of 2006. Check channel 240 for details.

I was hoping Dish decided to be a good company and give us non-locals subscribers the ATSC digital info for our Digital OTA stations. I notice I have an 084-01 on my 942 which is a Home Shopping Channel but this doesn't show up OTA as far as I know.

I now have the guide info for my OKC locals OTA also and I don't subscribe to locals either. When I change the guide to "All Channels" or "Sub Channels" I don't see the analog locals that E* provides so I don't think it is because of a free preview period. I think they just finally got the guid working for the OTA locals which is good since D* gives you the guide even if you don't subscribe to the locals.
