: WMC EPG data missing in Montreal OTA

2011-08-24, 09:55 PM
I know this isn't exactly the place for this type of question but I've been googling enough and I thought somebody here could steer me in the right direction.

I'm in Montreal with an antenna on my roof. My windows 7 system is set up with a U.S. zip code. I use OTA only.

I get guide data for all U.S. channels and some Canadian but am missing guide data for 3 channels. (12.1 CFCF, 17.1 CIVM and 15.1 CKMI) They all exist on zap2it and play on Belltv as well. How can I get this guide data into my system.

I've thought about "schedules direct"and some sort of importer like guidehound. I want to leave my system as U.S. for other reasons.

Any Ideas?

What zipcode are you using? If I enter 12919 into Zap2It, those channels are included and I would expect them also to show up in media center.

I ended up using mc2xml and guidehound.
It's working now.

What I do is manually setup the TV Signal for both analog and digital. Then edit the channels to disable all the analog channels and copy their listings to the corresponding digital channels.

That's a good idea, unfortunately my tuner is digital only so I never had that option during the initial setup.

What make/model of PC tuner card are you using? I haven't encountered a PC tuner that wasn't either dual or hybrid NTSC/ATSC/QAM.

It's the KWorld UB-435Q.
It works well although you have to install the drivers manually and I find if I channel surf a lot or do a channel scan it will sometimes drop off line. I then just unplug it and plug it back in and it works again.
Normal TV viewing and recording always works well.
