[mythtv-users] WBBM Chicago OTA guide data

I am located 60 miles from the lakefront and get my HD locals over comcasts
funky OTA to cable conversion process.  All channels work properly except
WBBM.  I get 2-1, 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, 9-1, 11-1, 11-2, 11-3, 32-1
etc... all over the cable as if they were OTA.  The problem is that I
believe I am receiving blank OTA guide data only on my WBBM 2-1 Chicago CBS
channel. This causes blank data to be overwritten with what schedules direct
shows in mythtv (all other channels are fine).  In my mythtv-setup I have
tried unchecking the box for "Use on air guide XMLTV ID:", yet it is still
overwritten in my guide to all blanks for the next 12 hours.  However, I do
have guide data from 12 hours in the future through 2 weeks.  I suspect that
the blank OTA data is overwriting the data SD is pulling but cant be sure.
Do you have any suggestions for this channel, or is there something not
working with SD properly? In theory if SD is sending me guide data for 2-1,
there should be a way to use that data instead of OTA all together.  Thanks
in advance.
