Is there a way to manually make a file to put all the frequencies from Argentina Digital Terrestial TV?

I have all the frequencies, but if i add them manually one by one, each frequency gets recognized and the channels do appear on the channel list, however all appear as channel id 1000 and i cant tune them, when i try to select the channel, a sign appears that the channel was not found...also the epg is not being grabbed over the air...

if i use the software that comes with the tuner, all channels get scanned automatically and the EPG is also working perfect

thanks

    The TV Server 'tuning parameters' are stored in .xml files - see http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_..._Localization/EPG_Grabbers_and_Tuning_details - just create a new one for Argentina then restart TV Server - it should then appear in the selection list.

    If you have problems, list the frequencies (or point me at a website with a list of them) and I'll create the .xml file for you.

    Checking on the wiki, i dont have such folder inside Media Portal Tv Server folder, should i create one?

    i get the channel frequencies from here
    http://tdt-latinoamerica.tv/wiki/plantas-tdt/frecuencias

    to each frequency, you must add 143 at the end, so the first one for example is 521143 and it works in 6mhz bandwith

    as you may see, each frequency has more than one channel, if you want, you can fill only with the first one, and upload it here, and i will complete it with all freqs and reupload it so you can add Argentina to the channel specs

    thanks

    Was this not the same problem we had before with Argentina, it did not strictly follow the dvb-t standards, so tuning did not work correctly.

    Did search but could not find old thread.

    There is a 'Brazil.All Regions.xml' in there, which looks like it includes the settings for the all of the South American UHF channels, so I used that as a base to create the attached 'Argentina.Some Regions.xml' (based on the website listing).

    I thought Argentina (and Brazil) are using ISDB-T, not DVB-T. :confused:

    yes, you are correct, but it seems that DVB-T is used on MP and NextPVR for scanning Brazil channels, so i guess is the one we need to use for Argentina as well, since there is no ISDBT option to choose.

    However, still this aint working, not sure why, but i cant tune any single channel...

    MP doesn't support ISDB... however that doesn't mean it won't work.
    I've read some of the ARIB ISDB service information specifications, and it looks like ISDB shares some of the same table and descriptor definitions as DVB. Also from your log files it seems that you are able to scan and find the channels.
    So it is possible that MP could work... but no guarantee.

    However, still this aint working, not sure why, but i cant tune any single channel...
    According to the log files tuning is successful, however the information about the video, audio and subtitle streams (PMT) is not received.
    Please try to enable the debug option "always use PAT lookup". Use "SetupTv.exe /DebugOptions" (http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_MEDIAPORTAL_1/141_Configuration/1_Command_Line_Options):
