Does anyone get program information in the dc area? I am using a dish6000 and when I do get it, its on the wrong channels.

So it will give me "NYPD Blue" on fox.

Anyone have a fix for this?

The dish 6000 does not fully support PSIP, it will only display the Virtual
and minor channel along with part of the short name, ie: 18-1 WCCB-

It will NOT display ANY of the EPG from local OTA.

Mine shows us here as being ABC for some reason.

You can go into the local channel setup and change your analog station to the right broadcast network, not FOX though. Then you can use the program info from the OTA analog and just turn to your OTA digital. Even though the analog guide may say "info not avaiable" just push the info buttom and it will usually be there 24/7.
