  1. I have cable TV through Spectrum.net and when I turn to The Weather Channel for Local on the 8’s it shows Alamosa, Colorado. I live in Monte Vista. How do I change it to Monte Vista, Colorado on Local on the 8″s?

    1. I have Dishnet and quite often I get to choose my local weather, not the same as Local on the 8’s, but close to the same time. I just hit select on the remote and it gives me all sorts of info. I guess you need to ask Spectrum if they have that option for you. Good luck.
