    I just installed TV Server, in attempt to switch from MyTV engine 2 to TV server and I have one problem: my cable provider have some encoded channels, which I receive through a STB. I was able to configure normal (unencoded) channels in TV server. For encoded channels, in MyTV I had MP configured to receive them on channel 7 (this is STB output channel) by manually changing TV database to set those channels as External, set channel as 7 and the code to be sent by Hauppauge IRBlaster to STB).
    But how can I do this in TV Server? What table should I change and how? I cannot receive STB channels from AV since STB AV connection is conencted directly to TV (not to my Hauppauge tunner).
    Also, I see in TV Server in Blaster plugin there is no Hauppauge IR blaster, only microsoft and SMK. Should I set SMK?

    Thank you
