I depend on PSIP program guides for point-and-click recordings with my OTA DVR. For anything beyond the duration of PSIP I have to use Titan to find out what's showing and manually set date, channel, start and stop times like an old VCR. So, PSIP is important to me. Manual timings are a major PITA.
Three of our locals, WSOC (9), WTVI (42), and WAXN (64) are outstanding, normally displaying 72 hours (3 full days) of PSIP.
Three other locals, WCCB (18), WCNC (36), and UNC-TV (58) normally have 24 hours of PSIP.
The worst three, WBTV (3), WJZY (46), and WMYT (55) have 12 hours PSIP, or less. When I checked shortly after 11:00 this morning, WJZY and WMYT had PSIP to 8:00 PM (9 hours) and WBTV had PSIP through 11:00 PM (12 hours).
The Feds only require minimal PSIP, but would it really cost any more for stations to give us their programming guide for at least 24 hours (and, hopefully match the 72 hours of the leaders of the pack)? Any station engineers with any pull? Any assistance will be much appreciated.
