Missing guide data for new ATSC 3 channels

I say "new", but it's been quite a while for some of them... anyway, they all mirror the contents of ATSC 1 channels that have full data in Channels, but the ATSC 3 versions have none. In my area, so far, these are:

102.1 WMAR
111.1 WBAL
122.1 WMPT
145.1 WBFF
154.1 WNUV
158.1 WIAV
158.3 WIAVMMT

And to answer the question posed here: Missing Guide Data for OTA Channels , they all do have data in the HDHR app, except for 158.3 (which is just a duplicate of 158.1).

Additionally, the ATSC 3 shuffle also led to the creation of a new ATSC 1 channel, 54.11, which is just a duplicate of 54.1 (WNUV), and has no guide data in either the HDHR app or Channels.

Finally, there's another ATSC 1 channel with no data, 25.1 WDVM-SD, which does have data in the HDHR app.

I live in Baltimore too, but don't have the 4K HDHomeRun yet, so I'm not able to see the 100+ channels. But doesn't the main ATSC1 channel, (eg. 54.1) match exactly the same content as the ATSC3 channel (154.1)? I am pretty sure it is legally required to match the content exactly. So maybe its possible to just map the guide data in the source settings -> manage lineup. Just point the ATSC3 channel to the guide for the ATSC1 channel. fixed.

You have to map them in the HDHR 4k settings. Check out mine.
