Hi everyone, I have what is probably an easy question, but I sure can't figure it out.......

I'm using an Analog AverMedia H826 tuner, I'm able to find all my channels, but they come in with just the local channel number, e.g. 33, 46, 15 etc. etc. I've tried XMLTv and WebEPG but neither can find the right guide info, I imagine because of only having the channel number and nothing else. Looks like it's just finding the first match and going with that. Using channel 33 as an example, it's grabbing the guide data for, instead of what I need, which is CNN Eastern.

Am I missing something really basic here? Do I need to build my own custom XML?


Well, now I feel stupid. 15 minutes after I posted this, I found this thread, and it works perfectly. Anyone else having the same type of issue, try this:
