For some reason even though the channel is detected fine in WMC. MP does not detect it when doing a channel scan. So I have to add the ATSC channel manually but i'm having some trouble.

This is the channel info from a past MP installation:
Code:
<channel GrabEpg="True" IdChannel="77" IsRadio="False" IsTv="True" LastGrabTime="2000-1-1 0:0:0" SortOrder="24" TimesWatched="0" TotalTimeWatched="2000-1-1 0:0:0" VisibleInGuide="True" DisplayName="30 Ion">
      <mappings>
        <map IdCard="2" IdChannel="77" IdChannelMap="273" />
        <map IdCard="3" IdChannel="77" IdChannelMap="416" />
      </mappings>
      <TuningDetails>
        <tune IdChannel="77" IdTuning="77" Bandwidth="8" ChannelNumber="38" ChannelType="1" CountryId="31" Diseqc="0" FreeToAir="True" Frequency="-1" MajorChannel="30" MinorChannel="1" Modulation="23" Name="KPXN ION" NetworkId="0" PmtPid="48" Polarisation="0" Provider="unknown" ServiceId="3" SwitchingFrequency="0" Symbolrate="0" TransportId="363" TuningSource="0" VideoSource="0" AudioSource="0" IsVCRSignal="False" SatIndex="-1" InnerFecRate="-1" Band="0" Pilot="-1" RollOff="-1" Url="" Bitrate="0" />
      </TuningDetails>
    </channel>

As you can see Frequency = Frequency="-1". But when I fill everything out and press OK. It gives me the error:

I checked some of my existing channels that were scanned succesfully with MP and they also had -1 as the frequency. So I have no idea why I can't add it?[DOUBLEPOST=1347322874][/DOUBLEPOST]Ok. I found a workaround. I exported my TV Channels and then added the info above to the .xml file and re-imported it.
TV Server Configuration> Import/Export> Unchecked everything except TV Channels> Export Now..

The channels play fine. So i'm still wondering why MP doesn't pick them up during the channel scan? I had this same issue with my previous MP test machine. But in that case they were totally different channels it didn't pick up?

    gonzo,

    I also get the freq=-1 problem if I try to edit a channel. I think this is a "known feature" but we will need to wait for a response from mm1352000. Have your tried rescanning? sometimes I get a scan error 1 time and it works the next time I scan.

    Try setting the "Preferred Network Provider" field = ATSC. See the TV Server wiki to see how to "Edit Tuner Settings"
    http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...uration/TV-Server_Configuration/02_TV_Servers

    also, if you look in the TV server log files for the tv.log, what do you see for the channel that has a problem?

    EDIT: another comment, does the TV Server > channel(nnn) screen show any "unknown" channels. I've also seen that during scan. You can try deleting the "unknown" channels and re-scanning.

    Preferred Network is set to ATSC as default already.

    I get a bunch of "Channel # Unknown channels" but since it shows the channel # I know it's not the channels i'm missing.

    I have no idea how to read the log?

    gonzo,

    I've also used the export channels, edit xml file, import to workaround problems with the freq=-1 problem. You could try deleting all of the "unknown" channels and re-scanning, that has fixed some of my scan problems in the past. But then again if your system is up and working sometimes the best option is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    another comment, the MePo ATSC scanning seems less robust than using the native HDHR SW. I've also had scanning problems if I have somewhat marginal signals

    I'll try deleting the "unknown" channels to see if it fixes it. If not i'll just use the workaround.

    The thing is that once I add those channels manually I can tune them in just fine.

    Hi folks

    <off topic>
    @RonD: by chance I happened to see your post on my profile. If you want my attention it is better to start a conversation with me because I'll get an email.
    </off topic>

    Yes, the frequency -1 thing is a bug. It has been fixed for MP 1.3 beta.
    #3784

    Having said that, am I correct in saying that you think that the channel which is apparently missing is KPXN ION (30.1)?
    According to the logs it is found:

    mm,

    I sometimes see ATSC scan problems where the channel name shows up as "Unknown 28-1" where the name is "unknown" followed by the Physical channel number. In many cases if I edit the channel it shows a valid "name" KFTL-CO in this case and I can preview the channel. I can usually do the following as a workaround.

    1. In channel(nnn), delete all "unknown" channels and rescan. If the rescan works, get a valid channel name and other info most of the time but not all the time. If I just do a rescan, the visible name does not seem to get updated

    2. If the channel "previews" modify the "name" to have the valid channel name.

    the attached txt file has has the "export.xml" info for 2 of my unknown channels. Both of the channels will preview and I can watch the channels. These are both Spanish language that I don't watch so I never did anything to "fix" them. I don't have the tv.log files from the scan.

    DisplayName="Unknown 28-1"
    DisplayName="Unknown 51-1"

    Hi RonD

    I sometimes see ATSC scan problems where the channel name shows up as "Unknown 28-1" where the name is "unknown" followed by the Physical channel number.
    The last number is the service ID.

    In many cases if I edit the channel it shows a valid "name" KFTL-CO in this case and I can preview the channel. I can usually do the following as a workaround.

    1. In channel(nnn), delete all "unknown" channels and rescan. If the rescan works, get a valid channel name and other info most of the time but not all the time. If I just do a rescan, the visible name does not seem to get updated

    2. If the channel "previews" modify the "name" to have the valid channel name.
    I think what you're describing is another known bug:
    #3707 ATSC/QAM channel names not always used even when they are available

    This is probably as frustrating for you as it is for me. I've fixed many of these things and more in my local code. I've also added support for zapping to channels using the proper ATSC channel numbers (eg. 30.1). However, it takes time to get these things into a release. In my case I've rewritten such large chunks of the TV Server that the changes have to be introduced in an alpha, and unfortunately I didn't make the 1.3 alpha.
