BTW, if both Silicon Dust and CW_EPG's own channel scans exist, CWHelper will use the more recent of the two. Furthermore, CW_EPG's normal installation sets up the machine to put all data into locations that are common to all users. So it shouldn't matter how many or what kind of users are registered.
Restarting the PC does not result in a normal Tuner Channels display, so I am hereby speaking up.
Here is a step-by-step. Bear in mind that HDHR software is still installed, set up, and working as I expect it should. (What do I know?) I can watch live TV and all the channel info is showing...
For no good reason, I uninstalled CW EPG, restarted the PC, downloaded a fresh copy of the 18.104.22.168 installer, and reinstalled CW EPG. Spoiler Alert: This didn't help at all, though the install process went smoother since JRE was present on the PC this time.
I started CW EPG, and downloaded the Schedules Direct data. No problems with that.
I got the pop-up stating "no mapped channels". I clicked Options in the Main window. In the Options window, Tuner Channels is blank, except for the column headers. Apparently, CW EPG must not be finding/loading Digital Antenna.xml which is located at C:\Program Data\Silicondust\HDHomerun.
Clicking Scan in CW EPG's Option window partially fills the Tuner Channels list. There are 8 channels for each of the two tuners, so 16 entries total. There *should be* 28 channels per tuner, so 56 entries expected.
Mapping one tuner channel to one SD Station creates an entry in the list of mapped channels, AND causes the Tuner Channels list to disappear (except for the column headers). Clicking the Scan button gets the Tuner Channels list back, but still just the 8 channels, not the complete list of 28 channels. I can map another channel and the Tuner Channels list will again disappear.
Now, since I have a mapped channel, the Listings data will appear in the Main window. Right clicking on a listing allows me to add it to the Programs To Match list, and matches appear in the Matches window.
Clicking on Schedule Matches in the Main window greys-out the Schedule Matches button. But on the Scheduled Items tab there are no entries. No Scheduled Captures appear. Ditto for the Capture History tab.
Returning to the Main window, the Matches list, and the box it was in, has completely disappeared. (See the "Main Window snip2" in my first post.) Closing and restarting CW EPG is the only way I can find to get it to come back. So I close and restart, and the Matches list has returned.
End of step-by-step. The above behavior is very repeatable, as I've repeated it many times, LoL. Restarting the PC at this point doesn't change behavior.
The only other clue I can think to offer: notice in the "Options Window snip" I posted earlier, look at the Mapped Channels list. See the Phy column has "null" in every entry? Does this mean anything?
Any ideas on what to try next?
Thanks, and thanks again for the quick response to my first post.
