No such thing as an OTA lineup issue?

    I reported it again last Friday.
    I came here to say that everything seems to be ok now as long as you have the correct channels checked on the channels list. The channels that receive a signal now have the guide data to go with them, but all of the superfluous channels in the channel list are still there and more have been added such as kstcdt8 and kstcdt9.

    I pulled up the Slingplayer to watch a little TV over lunch and it seems that the TiVo guide data is messed up again. There was a message on the TiVo saying a Lineup change occurred. Seems like they "re-did" the 5/45 changes. I didn't have time to dig too deeply, but while the MeTV listings seem to be there, the ThisTV listings are gone and channel 45-5 was removed entirely from the channel list.

    Should I rescan channels before reporting this to TiVo or will that not help with this type of issue? (I'm still a newbie for OTA.)

    On 10/31 I received a response from my email to kstp (tech@kstp.com) asking if everything was ok now. At the time it seemed to be, but there were still a lot of superfluous channels in the channel list to have to weed through to get the correct ones. With today's deletion of 6 channels, some of which should not have been deleted, I finally replied to kstp with the latest issues. A response came immediately that he'd contact TMS.

    KBrack, rescanning will not accomplish anything.

    As I observed elsewhere, the station wants you to watch them, so get them to raise hell with Tribune Media Services.

    Finally!
    My HD had everything correct after todays message for the lineup change that added channels, but my Premiere had duplicates of the two added channels (5-4 and 5-45) and each 5-4 and each 5-45 had to be checked as received. If I unchecked one, the other would magically uncheck itself and then when I re-checked just one, the other would magically be checked too. After a hard reboot everything is as it should be.

    Thank you to Dick the tech at KSTP.
