    Hmmmm, interesting question.
    Is it not obvious what the correct choice is?
    I mean, if you have a channel such as "ABC", wouldn't you know that the correct corresponding guide channel name would contain ABC?
    (...or wouldn't you know the call sign of your local ABC affiliate - for example WABC, or KABC?)

    Sorry if I've misunderstood your question. I just don't understand how you wouldn't know which option to select. :confused:

    Sometimes it's obvious but most of the time it isn't. You can try http://www.rabbitears.info/market.php
    Just select your market (phoenix, arizona), then click on any of the channels which should tell you which is which. . .

    Are these the original broadcast channel names, as found by TV Server?
    (Usually the broadcast channel names are "K..." or "W..." where applicable, which according to your example should be trivial to match.)

    Can you please zip and attach your latest tvguide.xml file.
    (I'd use zap2xml to check for myself, but the zap2xml website/download seems to be down at the moment from here.)


    P.S. These lists may be more convenient than RabbitEars:
