I gave up and setup my config as TVGOS thinks it is.
ANT1 - CableReady, only I have nothing connected to ANT1 now and did a channel scan for both cable and OTA from my Mits set and disabled it in NetCommand so I cannot even select ANT1 as an input
ANT2 - My rooftop OTA UHF antenna and did an OTA channel scan and disabled all analog channels in the Mits channel editor
Disabled TVGOS, shut down completely and unplugged overnight.
Enabled TVGOS (from the TV setup) on ANT2 as OTA with my correct zipcode.
TVGOS still thinks I have CableReady (cable w/CC) on ANT1 and OTA on ANT2. I will let it stew over that(/sleep on it) tonight and see if it gets any smarter tomorrow.
4 days and nothing much to report... TVGOS has actually added a digital channel (2.1 & 2.2) I don't receive to my sets channel editor and is off trying to tune in cable on ANT1, even though nothing is attached to the ANT1 input. About 250 zipcode packets now, but no timezome packets yet. I'm going to stop reporting updates on this here until I get my timezone packet and a lineup choice.
O.K. I said I wouldn't followup on my post until I got my timezone packet and a lineup...
I'm not sure if it's because of what I did or because a station I receive started transmitting packets needed?
Well, I did get a (1) timezone packet and now have my timezone set correctly, but still no patch updates or host channel or grid or lineup yet. But something changed here, since I finally got the timezone packet.
I've noticed that TVGOS 08.01.71 has more control over my device than I do and can re-scan inputs, add channels, access inputs I disabled, etc. So I know it's desperate and is doing everything it can to get data.
THE ONLY THING I changed recently (04/25/09) is to re-enable the ANT1 input on my device (Mitsubishi WD-57831) through NetCommand and tell my device that it's OTA. I did this because I saw TVGOS was trying to scan the ANT1 input for cable channels and knew it would take forever to scan an unconnected input as cable w/channels up to 135?, so I figured if I told it the input was OTA instead of cable it would waste much less time trying to find OTA channels 2-69 on a connector with nothing hooked up. So I had my device start an OTA channel scan on ANT1 and cancelled it immediately. Then did a TVGOS System Reset (04/25/09) to start it re-thinking. Previously (as explained above) I had told it to scan ANT1 as cable.
I still have nothing physically connected to the ANT1 input.
