Again, I have talked at length to KXVA's Engineers.
They are broadcasting their FCC assigned TSID of 3655. The problem is that they are currently broadcasting at reduced power granted by an FCC STA (Special Temporary Authorization) and they are not embedding all of their PSIP info in their signal. Their new PSIP generating computer will be installed at the same time as their new full power transmitter. They are waiting for their new owners to authorize the purchase of the new equipment and they have no guess as to when this will happen. The STA expires in August and they will, almost certainly, file for an extension for who-knows-for-how-long.
Until then, they will continue to operate in 'limp-along' mode.
On a related note, Suddenlink cable has implemented a 'work around' for the problem to get the gude to display correctly. Their CE actually met with the Suddenlink people on this and they showed him their solution (which was rather complex) and he said "it was over his head" on how they did it.
They are working with Dish to try and do something similar for a temporary fix until all the new equipment is installed and on line.
All I can say is - Be Patient.
