Problem with WMC and CHCH

I've had a WMC PC runing for about 6 years and recently channel CHCH has stopped working. If I use the HDHOMERUN software I can watch the channel but if I use WMC it says it can't find a signal. I live in hamilton so my signal strength is 100%. Last night I formatted and reinstalled and it still doesn't work. I get 15+ other channels no problem in WMC, and I get the channel in View - Anyone have any ideas?

This is discussed in the OTA station status thread. It's been an issue since October. CHCH is aware of the problem and it should be finally fixed Monday morning.

I work around the problem by doing a channel rescan. Then I edit the channel (11.1), edit sources and uncheck the 100% signal sources. I have 3 tuners and six sources appear. 3 are automatically assigned by WMC and show 100% signal strength. The scanned sources in my case show 94% signal.
