I am getting great 100% signal strength and can watch CTV Ottawa CJOH on 13.1 from Hauppauge WinTV and TSReader but not from 7mc.

if somebody can spot something wrong in the Psip it would be great !

I added CJOH to WMC manually when it didn't scan.

Tasks > Settings > TV > Guide > Add Missing Channels

Afterwards move back up to the Guide level and you can edit 13-1 and edit the listings to copy the EPG data from 13 to 13-1.

I added CJOH manually. It works for viewing but when i try recording it craps out. So I removed it and will try to see why it's not scanning. I suspect it's another PSIP issue as we have seen with Global.

Flavoie,

I tried adding it manually. It works for me. I recorded a live stream and I also scheduled a recording without issue.

I thought I would try adding global again manually...no dice.

I wonder if it has something to do with analog channel conflicts with the media center system.

ie....the listings include analog 6 and analog 13 RF...even if you remove them from the guide it still thinks they are there.

I was wondering what would happen if zap2it updated listing data for 13662 zip code to remove the conflict if that might resolve the issue.

Maybe I will try the guide setup again without my analog tuner.

Thanks mike ! I tried and tried again, it turns out i was not patient enough.

The first few times I either clicked on the Record button during live TV or for making a scheduled recording from the guide while live TV was running, I would get an hourglass, for what it seemed like forever. This time I just waited it out. It might have taken 20 minutes but it finished gracefully. It took a long time a few times, but now when I hit record it is fast/normal.

So i'm good with SRC and CTV added manually.
