    I followed the instructions here

    I have mapped channels to card 5-Hauppauge HD PVR Crossbar

    All Channels in the TV Guide say no data available

    I can change channels in MePo but the STB never changes. Changing channels on the STB will change what is being viewed even though the "Channel" in MePo is something else

    TV-Server Configuration > TV Channels > Preview .. will open a window no video (blank white screen), I can hear the audio but all channels play the channel the STB is set on

    Hi DetrieZ

    Good. :)

    You'll need to talk to a SchedulesDirect expert to fix that.

    That is because you haven't configured a blaster. A blaster is the thing that tells the STB to change channels when you change channels in MP. There is a good guide for that -->here<--.

    The reason the channels play what the STB is set on is again because you haven't set up a blaster.
    The reason the screen has no video is almost certainly related to codecs or the wrong video input selected. The codecs that will be used are the codecs with the highest "merit". Use filmerit or radlight to manage codec merit.
