    Right, after installing RC1 i did a complete scan for new tv-channels on my analog cable! Channels are found, but channel names are a bunch of gibberish, and (like i was used to from 0.2.3 version of MP) I want to add channels to the cards and channellist manually!
    Unfortunately, TV-server doesn't use normal frequencies or even ALLOW me to ADD a channel, then input the frequency, nor can i use channel codes (like, C10 or K25) like I used to be able to! Whats going on? Was the way MP handles channel frequencies completely changed from MP 0.2.3 to RC1, yet kept the interface?
    How can i manually add channels to the card, either using exact frequencies, or at least use channel codes?
    This part of setting up a HTPC is the most painful, getting channels up and running, sorting them, then renaming and making the EPG WORK for once! HELP! :)

    Anyone have a suggestion? Please?
    OK, i should really add, that I've searched for TV channels ín the TV server configuration menu, but searched with the CABLE option, since im on a cable network here! But, when i switch to searching with ANTENNA option, it seems i can input channels again! But it's not entirely in the same way as old MP!
