Do you recieve guide data/program info for the Charlotte channels or GSP only?
Non-Greenville stations are normally "turned off" in my Sony DVRs' TVGOS channel editor. To get listings for them, I have to turn them "on" and assign channel numbers by hand. I've done this for a bunch of Charlotte and Columbia stations that I watch occasionally.
My understanding is that the DTVPal DVR and the identical Channel Master DVR do not allow you to get TVGOS listings for all those channels. Their TVGOS channel lineup includes only the stations for the DMA that your ZIP code falls into, and you cannot add out-of-DMA stations. The DTVPal and the Sony both receive the same broadcast TVGOS data, but the DTVPal ignores the out-of-DMA data. I think for out-of-DMA stations the DTVPal uses the PSIP guide data that is broadcast by the stations themselves. (There are a couple of long threads for these units in the HDTV Recorders forum here, and people there probably know the details better.)
|And if you entered a Clt zip in set up menu would you get Clt data? Just wondering if you could get guide data for both markets.|
