I just needed to move the Hauppauge tuner card in my Windows 7 computer to another slot and now my interface with Schedules Direct has disappeared. I can't find any way to get it to work. How do I do this?

    AFAIK, SchedulesDirect shouldn't have anything to do with the placement of your tuner card, it interfaces with the channels listed in your TV Server to gather EPG. The TV Server determines which channels are free to switch to or record from. Did you try to rescan your channels in TV Config and make sure your channels were assigned properly to the card? When I added and removed HDHR tuners from TV Server, I didn't have to deal with the SchedulesDirect plugin at all.

    I didn't think it would either yet it did. I can watch live TV and record TV shows so I know that the tuner card has been properly scanned and configured. Nonetheless, the Schedules Direct problem exists.

    Further complicating things is that recorded programs can be played back in Media Portal but cannot be found in the directory I specified for recordings or anywhere else on the computer. This is a problem I posted in another thread.

    I found the missing recorded TV shows and corrected the settings so that they now land in the directory that I want. I still need to get Schedules Direct to work and will work on that problem next.

    Using some tips I found in other threads I was able to get Schedules Direct to work but it now presents me with a new problem, the channels are listed in no particular order. How can I get it listed in numerical order?

    It would be considerably helpful to ppl who might experience the same difficulties in their set-up if you could explain briefly what hints you found helpful, and what steps did the job for you. :)

    The channel scan numbers don't always line up the same as the broadcasters' channel number. You should be able to sort your channels in TV Server config -> TV Channels and they will be sorted this way in the Guide.

    Isn't this normal? I mean perhaps you should first do some config before you can start using mediaportal?

    Being a long time user of the SD plugin, all of this seems a lot more complicated than when I first set it up. I have a roof antenna with 2 dual HDhomeRun tuners and I scanned all the available channels in TV Server. I don't use power scheduler, nor the xmltv plugin. For me it took about 40 minutes to download my SD lineup in only...

    Thanks jfd553, Yes, I figured out it does download from Schedules Direct. I had done what you suggested and checked my download file for that specific channel number and could not find it. So I submitted a request to update the Schedules Direct data for my area. Took a few weeks but I just heard back 3 days ago that it had been...
