Fix should work for other ATSC tuners having PSIP problems too
Yes, the TSID fix we put in place this morning has the side benefit of making CFTO more compatible with my Samsung HDTV as well. It was coming in as 40-4 (a nonexistant virtual channel) and is now showing up properly as 9-1. I would expect that a rescan is in order for everyone (and rescan for WIVB 4-1 this weekend too I'm hoping).
My TV (Philips) will not store 40-1 during autoscan. The signal is strong but the only way to watch that channel is to manually add it each time. And even then it will not store but I can watch it. Is any one else having this problem?
Finally got an answer today from CFTO, after being passed around like a splif at a Floyd concert.
CFTO is concentrating on getting guide info contracts signed with subscription based services - ie TV Guide.
Guide info may be added to its OTA stream only after this is accomplished.
TV Guide is stopping its print version next month (at least in Canada) and will be web-based only starting Nov. 28th 2006, so I would assume we wouldn't see guide info before then.
Edit: there was no commitment to guide info being added to the PSIP stream
