V-Code Really This Difficult?
I'll brief my story and I'd like to know if anyone else is having similar issues.
I have 2 605 receivers. When I would go to channel 588 previous to the new LNB it said satellite upgrade required.
I have the OVP programming package with the movies added.
I installed the new xKu LNB on Wednesday evening. Immediately after installing it I saw several new channels were in the guide and many of them worked. I was however unable to now tune into some previously existing channels like AMC HD, and even channel 299 which is the Shaw Direct channel.
I called to have the V-Code sent to my receiver and I think I got an inexperienced rep. He hummed for a while, put me on hold several times, and then said he sent it down and I had to reset the receiver. I had to go to work so I got off the line, reset the box, and when I returned home next this was the result:
My guide was now reset to classic....so my Hd channels started at 32. I could see some of the new channels were there, but I was now missing a bunch of channels that I had always had like FXHD and some other Movie HD ones.
I called back and had someone reset my guide back to advanced, resend the V-Code, do a factory reset on the receiver, and then hand up on me while I was on hold for 10 minutes after this didn't correct anything. The guide reset properly, so HD channels start on 300 now. But 988 now says 'receiver upgrade required'. I have a 605.
So I have to call back still but I wanted to know if anyone else has had similar issues where after the LNB and V-Code I'm not missing FXHD, Encore HD, Movie HD. My guide actually skips the channels they should be on entirely. I've got it on show all channels and show unsubscribed channels, and I do see the grey unsubscribed channels in the guide...but the channel's I'm missing now are completely vanished and you can't manually go to the channel number either.
I'll have to call them back but this will be the 3rd call now and I wanted to see if anyone else is having these issues.
