ch 200 News Mix (NMX)

I was excited to have this channel. But we’ve somehow set one of the channels to the Weather Channel, instead of the news channel it was on. I can’t remember how to change it back to what I want. Can some one help? Every search I’ve done points me to really old posts.

During the hurricanes and severe weather in the west the BBC was replaced by the Weather Channel on NMX.  This has happened in the past and after the emergency BBC was restored to NMX (replacing Weather Channel).  This last time the BBC has not been restored.  The Weather Channel is terrible now...  mostly old shows covering guys recovering wrecked tractor trailer rigs in the snow.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE restore BBC to NMX.  The international perspective is so good in contrast to the three "domestic" channels.  Great viewing all four and skipping around to get all the different perspectives.  Thanks, CRM

The Mix channels are programmed by DirecTV. You can't change them.

We are here to help with your inquiry on NMX channel, @doonboggles.

 

@litzdog911 is correct. You are unable to change to the channel programming itself.

 

Did you lose the channel?

  1. Let's try to reset your receiver.
    • This will clear minor trouble hidden in the memory of the receiver.
  2. It may be currently hidden. 
    • You will need to change your DirecTV Program Customization.
    • Also, check to see if you may have hidden HD channels in your guide.
      1. Go into Menu 
      2. Settings 
      3. Display 
      4. Preferences 
      5. Guide HD Channels
  3. If channel is still hidden.

Let us know if this helps.

Hi litzdog911, thanks for the response. I'm pretty sure that we did set it up ourselves a few months ago, and my wife remembers setting one of the four stations to the Weather Channel during our fire-related bad air two weeks ago. But it's possible we're just losing our minds, it's been known to happen. Just for the sake of evidence of insanity to share with our doctor, can you tell me which stations you get on Channel 200?

 

Thanks!
