Zap2It Now Working Properly

I gave up on Zap2It. My wife tried the Zapper this morning and Lo and Behold they have risen from the dead. All is now well in Zapland. I'm glad that they are back in the functioning world of TV listings.

Ironic that I just got on to TVPassport after some of their email accreditation problems and now Zap2It works.

With the new Zap2it, how do you get a new starred channel to display on the Starred list? When in all channels, the channel shows as starred, but it does not display when the Starred list is displayed.
I resolved my problem by creating a new account.

RuralRouter We were loyal users of Zap2It. I am sorry that Zap2It is having so much trouble with the Shaw Direct listings. Just my opinion, I suspect that Zap2It has lost staff and the remaining staff or new staff are having a hard time discovering by trial and error how things work.

Bayguy About half the missing US chans are back now on Zap2It.

TV Passport email system now working

I am so happy that has finally sent an email to me to confirm my existence and accredit me to their listings service. Everything works – All EAST & WEST US Networks.

It has been September 30 since I first registered. I was getting the feeling that the only way to get Shaw Direct National Listing was from the TV set after pressing guide on the Remote.

Happy Happy Happy!

RuralRouter OK, got it. My misunderstanding. Good luck with the Rogers listings on Zap2It.

JamesK we are talking about the new Shaw channel #s in Zap2It.
Yep, that's why I said it wouldn't be appropriate for me to ask them. As I'm not on the system the problem is on, I can't complain about a problem I don't have.

Rogers Ignite on Zap2It is OK

Zap2It listings for Rogers Ignite Cable service for Mississauga has all of the USA networks EAST and WEST. @k801809 , It is strange that Zap2It has the Shaw Direct National listings in a state of flux.

RuralRouter yes that is what I see too, no 231, 232, 234, 236, or 238-241.

Per Zap2It

Missing at this hour (10AM, Oct 5, 2019) from the Zap2It guide for ALL CHANNELS:

231 ABC East
232 CBS East
234 NBC East
238 CBS West
239 Fox West
240 NBC West
241 PBS West

Note: 242 Spokane PBS no longer available on SD

The attached screen grabs from the Zap2It website for Shaw Direct East.

Shaw Direct Zap2It Missing Channels

Everyone in Canada has lost IFC and CosmoTV as of Sept 30, 2019. No other provider in Canada has IFC, which is as a result of a business decision by Corus Entertainment.

IFC was on the Shaw Direct lineup: Advanced #492, National #660 according to the SD website.

Shaw Direct Channel #242 is listed on the National Listing as PBS HD Spokane. This channel has been or will be no longer carried by Shaw Direct.

This composite photo is of my TV set showing the NATIONAL listing SD guide.

JamesK ^^^^
I have all those, other than 242. When I go to 242 on my TV, it says the channel (IFC) is no longer available. Don't forget, the lineup depends on the provider and location. I'm on Rogers in Mississauga.

Bayguy JamesK you say you are not having that problem does that mean you see all the chans from 231-242 on Zap2It?

LONSat I have contacted them a couple times and have never received a response other then the automated response that my inquiry has been received. In my experience they do t respond.
