Last night I decided to do a scan of digital channels on my Dish 6000. After it finished, KATU digital (channel 2) had dissapeared from my guide but then 43-1 through 8 and 50-1 and 2 appeared. All the new channels were dark but showed a 78-82% signal strength.

I didn't think it was possible to have more than 3 "sub-channels"! That was pretty weird, can anybody in Portland confirm this? Or is it just my box freaking out?

Something happened to KATU-DT. There's plenty of signal, but no content. As you noticed, the PSIP channel mappings are missing, too.

'don't know what 50 could be.

You have a right to install OTA and dish antennas on property under your control.

Yes, full signal but nothing on it for me last night. But I was still receiving (or not receiving) it on 2-1 (with mits box).

My local (Chicago) PAX has 6. I think that's the max.
