CFTO CTV channel no signal in Widows Media Center

I'm having a problem with Windows Media Center. I found an old post that seems to talk about the same problem I'm having now. Using the HDHomeRun software that came with my antenna, I can get a picture no problem, but Windows Media Center says there's no signal. The post I found was

Is anyone else in the Toronto area having the same problem? Is there some way I can test if the problem is caused by the same issue Peter related in his post?

I need Windows Media Center to be able to get the signal so I can record TV.

(EDIT: above link solved my below problem,

DigitalHome & pjgould FTW! thx!)

I'm having the same issue with CFTO & Global 41.

Both were working fine a couple of weeks ago, but since then, 100% signal strength, but no sound or image in WMC.

My TV picks them up fine, so I don't know if it's WMC/PID issues, or the signal is overloading my WinTV tuners (x3).

Manually add the channels, copy their guide from the listed channel, unselect the listed channel.
