Below is a update of my previous message regarding what the Hopper gets OTA here in Austin.
For those of you who are considering Dish with an OTA module, I'd like to report here that there is indeed guide data available for many OTA channels in the Hopper. Here's what my new setup has found:
KTBC 7.1 / Fox - all program data
KTBC 7.2 / Movies! - no guide data
KLRU 18.1 / PBS - all program data
KLRU 18.2 / PBS Create - all program data
KLRU 18.3 / PBS Q - all program data
KLRU 18.4 / PBS VMe - all program data
KVUE 24.1 / ABC - all program data
KVUE 24.2 / TV Estrella - all program data
KVUE 24.3 / radar - no program data
KTFO 31.1 / Unimas - no program data
KTFO 31.2 / KAKW Univision channel 62 main feed - no program data
KXAN 36.1 / NBC - all program data
KEYE 42.1 / CBS - all program data
KEYE 42.2 / Telemundo - all program data
KNVA / 54.1 / CW - all program data
KAKW 62.1 / Univision - all program data
KAKW 62.2 / Unimas - all program data
KAKW 62.3 / GetTV - no program data
KAKW 62.4 / Escape - no program data
The big blanks are the sub-channels on KTBC and KAKW. Also, there is no program data for KTFO/KAKW at all on 31.X.
It also appears that the subchannels on 42 and 31 are now getting more bits than they were back in July when I originally posted this. Both Telemundo/42.2 and KTFO Unimas/31.1 now appear to have much better video and are in 16X9 format.
And a personal note...the Hopper OTA tuner is so much more sensitive and flexible than that thing DirecTV had it's not even funny.

Reason: updated info for 62.2 - certain off air subchannels take more than 24 hours for data to populate
