So the steps to getting my ATSC only setup some guide listings was:
  • Installing WinTV NTSC tuner.
  • Set it up under WMC (with my correct Canadian postal code).
  • No set top box selection (or it would stop after not detecting IR blaster)
  • Connect a TV signal to NTSC tuner (or it would not continue)

Then WMC 8 would finally download some local guides. Mapped them over to my ATSC channels and disabled the NTSC channels.

A little scared to remove the NTSC tuner. And not sure what a person with just the ATSC (HDHomeRun Dual) would do....

Thanks all for the help.

Glad to hear you got it working.

You should be able to remove the scheduled tasks and just let WMC do its normal update, which runs about every 12 hours.

BTW I'm also running Win 8.
