I think I had the process figured out, but was stumped by being unable to tell Media Center that I had a different local service to determine the Guide ID to put in the xml file. (My guess was that it was because I did not have a capable tuner installed, just my network attached HDHomeRunDual ATSC)
it looks like the "Shaw Cablesystems - Digital (r2k1l6)" listings at zap2it will have the guide info required.
Guide Info for Shaw from zap2it (that I can remap?):
The OTA guide for me from Zap2it is:
But as I understand it, I wont be able to use that directly.
Thanks for all your efforts pnear!
If you need anything after I get it working to add Winnipeg to the batch files, let me know!
And just an FYI for Winnipegers, with an RCA ANT1650R multi directional amplified digital flat antenna (amplifier not installed) in the basement of my house in EK I can get the following stations:
CH27 - 3 6.1 CBWT-DT English CBC Winnipeg
CH40 - 1 9.1 CKND-HD
CH40 - 2 9.2 CKND-SD
CH51 - 3 3.1 CBWFT-D French CBC Winnipeg
CIITDT (Joytv 11 Manitoba) (CIIT-DT) 35.1 was accessible with antenna on main floor, but not in basement.
I am hoping to improve reception by moving antenna up in the house (attic?) in the hopes of bringing in:
7.1 CKY Winnipeg
City TV VHF band, Channel 13 frequency
Watching the hockey game FOR FREE thru WMC and the Xbox extender exceeded the HD picture quality of my (soon to be cancelled) Ultimate MTS TV.
But without a guide, the DVR is a no go, which means back to the monthly bills!
