Your living in the Shreveport DMA, I'm pretty sure, limits you to the Shreveport HD LiLs.
be getting these Shreveport networks in HD:
KMSS-HD (FOX) is on 119, channel 5263, mapped to 33
KSLA-HD (CBS) is on 119, channel 5261, mapped to 12
KTAL-HD (NBC) is on 119, channel 5262, mapped to 6
KTBS-HD (ABC) is on 119, channel 5260, mapped to 3
Are you not getting those channels?
Now, there is a cheat called "moving" in which you tell DISH your physical location is in one location (that you make up) and your billing location is your real address. I don't condone this, but some people do it to get the DMA they want. Of course this won't work when you have a tech come out.
If I understand it correctly, this is not a DISH limitation, but rather a law.
Yes, you have Western arc.
