I'll post these answers here too, in case inquiring minds want to know.

OTA, but I do have a cable line available to plug in if I want.
Is it digital "only" - meaning no analogue TVGOS to the box?
Only digital here. Here is the history...
The analog PBS station was the analog host channel here, and they shut down their analog signal on 1/5/2009. Analog CBS never carried TVGOS data, but it doesn't matter, because they shut down their analog feed on 2/17/2009. I get my data from digital CBS, and if I so choose, I can connect the cable line up, and have access to the analog TVGOS on analog CBS (Cox cable is converting the digital TVGOS to analog, and sending it out on analog CBS). I really have the best of both worlds here.
If I understand your last line you have no analogue in the area? Is that correct?
I assume you are on the new Sony Software?
I applied the software Friday evening. However even with the old firmware, I was able to go from a 'TV Guide - Reset to Factory Default' to a channel lineup in less than 48 hours (on March 25th). jayhawkram who posts every once in a while is also in Wichita, his unit reset a week ago (lost his channel lineup and grid), and after applying the new firmware upgrade, he also got a channel lineup back. My only conclusion I can draw from this is that the TVGOS data in this area is "different" than other areas.
