* San Francisco (Twin Peak area)
* WMC with Happauage 2250
* LG 47LW5600 TV
* Comcast limited basic service
* Only watch Fox (2.1), CBS (5.1), ABC (7.1), NBC (11.1) and CW.
Everything was working fine for several years until a couple days ago. I am no longer able to watch KGO-HD 7.1 (ABC). It said something about the channel being scrambled or encrypted. I forgot the exact error message. I then rescaned the signal and 7.1 and 11.1 are no longer appearing in the Guide. I talked to Comcast and they are of no help. They asked me to get a cable box to solve the problem. However, if I get a cable box, I will not be able to use the dual tuner feature of my Hauppauge 2250. I would consider OTA before I would consider a cable box.
I notice the station KGO which broadcast ABC is actually showing up as KGO-HD (9.53) in the Guide. The channel is watchable but there is no guide information. It says "No data available" in the Guide.
Another strange thing is that when I hookup the coaxial cable from Comcast directly to the TV, bypassing WMC, the scan was successful and I have all the channels I want with the correct expected channel number.
Any help you can give me is appreciated.
