ok it seemed like it was that long.
I tried nextpvr software and told it to scan for channels, it found 18 channels. Funny thing was 49.1 was the right channel and it worked but no guide.
25.1 and 26.1 were channel and guide.
it didn't know what 16.2 was but I had a guide of it but no picture. They are off the air right now aren't they?
38.1 no picture but it did show it.
I am going home to look this evening but I could have sworn when it scanned for channels it said that 49.1 was KMYA -CD.
its so strange that in wmc I manually added 20.2 the first time I tried and had a channel but low quality pic and no guide.
After redoing it all I tried what dave said about 16 and its the right channel and a better pic but no guide.
OTA has guide and knows the correct channel, so how bad can you make a hight tech tuner and software that can't do what a tv can.
had a buddy build a new htpc last month, after spending $800 for hw and software he is ready to throw his out the door. His wife refuses to use it and says it a pos.
5+ seconds to change a channel, no guide or very short guide, overall just like she said a pos.
He is now hoping to sell it and get a tivo
Just today I revived my Windows Media Center (WMC) just to see if it still worked. I noticed as you did that 49.1 (KMYA-DT - METV) was not listed in the guide data.
Remembering your post, I thought I would try to get it in there so I could watch that channel. FYI, I am using 72209 for zip which is a Little Rock zip even though it is 25 miles away. There are more channels to choose from when I use that zip.
First thing I noticed is that 20.2 showed no signal. Thought maybe 20.2 would be KMYA-DT. Nope ... "No Signal". Must be assigned by WMC on a RF channel I can't get here.
Next I went to Tasks>Settings>TV>Guide>Add Missing Channels. I added "49.1 KMYA-DT" on RF channel "20". Low and behold it worked and I could actually watch KMYA-DT (METV).
However, there was no guide data but, since 20.2 is listed and has the same data as 49.1 I then associated that data with 49.1. In the guide I clicked on "49.1 KMYA-DT" at left of grid>Edit Channel>Edit Listings>Selected 20.2 KKYKCD2>Copy Listings from channel 20.2 to 49.1.
Voila, I now have All the channels I can get here set up in WMC.
Just thought I would chime in about this in case something has changed now making this possible.
