    I got MediaPortal reinstalled on a new computer using my networked HDHomeRun. Added the SchedulesDirect plugin and got that working as well.

    I have my channels labeled like 600 WRHMDT

    In TV server configuration, I can sort the channels by name or number. If I pikc name, I get

    0
    10
    104
    106
    11
    110

    If I pick by channel number, I get



    80
    600
    609
    81
    966
    970

    because
    600 is digital channel 81 20:1
    609 is digital channel 81 9:1

    Is there any way I can get the channels ordered in numerical order by the cable system channel number?

    It seems I was able to figure this out. If you manually sort the channels using the up/down arrow in TVServer, the ordering is maintained in MediaPortal.

    Just in case you missed this setting in mp configuration:

    TV - MediaPortal Wiki

    see the first screenshot "Select channel by index (non-US)". default is on, means for US you would have to uncheck it.

    But maybe this won't help in your special case if channel numer of channel 600 is 80 20:1. But I am not familiar with the us system, so maybe it helps.
