My concern is that I have the following channels in my area and could be limited on how TiVo is going to send the digits to change the channels:
(NBC) WLEX - ch39.1: virtchannel - 18.1
(CBS) WKYT - ch13.1: virtchannel - 27.1
(CW) CWKYT - ch13.2: virtchannel - 27.2
(ABC) WTVQ - ch40.1: virtchannel - 36.1
(FOX) WDKY - ch4.1: virtchannel - 56.1
(PBS) KET1 - 42.1: virtchannel - 46.1
(PBS) KET2KY - 42.2: virtchannel - 46.2
(PBS) KETHD - 42.3: virtchannel - 46.3
(PBS) KETED - 42.4: virtchannel - 46.4
So does the Zenith tune by the real channel numbers or the virtual channel numbers? or both ways? Am I going to have an issue with TiVo sending the following digits for these channels tuned on the Zenith?
181, 271, 272, 361, 561, 461, 462, 463, 464
131, 132, 391, 401, 41, 421, 422, 423, 424
13, 132, 39, 40, 4, 421, 422, 423, 424
I am going to be using a CECB + Dish network sat receiver. I am concerned that with the TiVo sending the 3-digits for these channels, it will simultaneously change the channels on the satellite receiver. I am not sure how it will know to be recording from either the CECB or the sat receiver tuned input. I'll do some more research on that. I've not used the channel mapping part of TiVoWebPlus before, so I am in the learning curve trying to conceive what is possible to make myself a solution for OTA with my TiVo. I know others have gotten the older Zenith CECB to work with their series 1 TiVos, but I've not read anything conclusive about doing a complete hack where the subchannels on the CECB are also utilized. The changeover to ATSC for local broadcast will actually give me 4 additional channels of programming that I don't get OTA via NTSC signals right now, so if I can use subs on a CECB (even if the guide is faulty for these subchannels), it's a bonus.
