I received this email From KBAK 29
Hey guys, good news, well sort of, I just talked with a DirecTV engineer and he has a quick fix. If you go into your settings for your tuner where it asks for a zip code leave it blank and then do a channel reset, this will force the tuner to look for PSIP locally.
When you enter your local zip it sends the info to a company (Tribune) that has preset PSIP info for local areas. When we added a secondary stream their setup wasn't setup for it. Hopefully that will be changed after the Holidays but in the meantime you can delete the Zip and it should work once you remap the channels.
By the way, Mark, you were saying that it is ch. 29 when you get up but at 7am it changes to 58. Well, that issue was that we air on Morning show "Daybreak" as a simulcast to both stations. So you are getting 58 at 6am but it is airing the 29 news at that time.
Thanks guys for being patient and let me know if it works

Only one problem for me now. Since I turned off my zip I don't get KUVI and I also still don't get 29-1. I do however have 58-1 23-1 and 17-1
