I'm using 0.2.3_RC2 with Schedules Direct (& patrick's plug in) and have seven (out of 83) channels that are mapped incorrectly. I have tried moving them around using the configuration screens, but have had no success.

For example:
Channel 3 is showing what should be on 6
Channel 4 is showing what should be on 10
Channel 5 is showing what should be on 11
Channel 6 is showing what should be on 3
Channel 7 is showing what should be on 5
Channel 10 is showing what should be on 7
Channel 11 is showing what should be on 4

I don't know if it's Schedules Direct, MP v2.3, or what, so any help would be appreciated!

Hi thinksnow,

Just so I can try to catch up :)

I have tried moving them around using the configuration screens, but have had no success.
Do you mean the channels are displayed/sorted out of order
but the EPG and what is displayed when watched match?
If so it may just be a sorting problem.

Channel 3 is showing what should be on 6
What is "showing what should be on 6"?
Is the EPG showing what should be on channel 6
or is the channel when watched displaying what
should be on channel 6?


Can you
-delete just channels 3,4,5,6,7,10,11
-run the auto-tune/scan again for you card (to re-add the channels)
-force an update on next MP startup via the SD plugin
-start MP and let the update complete (20-40 minutes)
-post your complete epg.log file to http://pastebin.team-mediaportal.com/

Hi thinksnow,

Nope, the EPG will show channel 4 WCMH, 12:00 = Golf but if I were to tune to that channel, it would show channel 10's programming (CBS The NFL Today Presented By Southwest Airlines). In order to watch golf on NBC, I would have to tune to channel 11 on the EPG (which is supposed to be the AZN channel.

What is "showing what should be on 6"?
Is the EPG showing what should be on channel 6
or is the channel when watched displaying what
should be on channel 6?
See above.

Can you
-delete just channels 3,4,5,6,7,10,11
-run the auto-tune/scan again for you card (to re-add the channels)
-force an update on next MP startup via the SD plugin
-start MP and let the update complete (20-40 minutes)

I deleted the channels, but when I try to autotune now, the MP Configuration encounters a problem and shuts down.

Edit to add:
Media Portal now errors out and shuts down when I try to start that, too.

I'm doing a purge and re-install of 2.3 RC2. We'll see what happens.

With 2.3 RC2, I've got a different set of mis-mapped channels, all still in the 2-11 range while 12-99 report fine.
Channel 2 is good
Channel 3 is good
Channel 7 shows what is listed for 4
Channel 4 shows what is listed for 5
Channel 9 shows what is listed for 6
Channel 11 shows what is listed for 7
Channel 8 is good
Channel 6 shows what is listed for 9
Channel 5 shows what is listed for 10
Channel 10 shows what is listed for 11

I've got some channels now, though, that show a brief flash of tv, then go to static. I'm tempted to swap out the PVR-500 for my PVR-250 just to troubleshoot and ensure that it's not the new card (in addition to switching from XMLTV to YahooTV to Schedules Direct, I switched to the PVR-500 two weeks ago, too). I figure the less variables I'm dealing with, the better, right?

Edit to add:
I tried re-mapping the channels via the configuration screen and all that did was move them in the tvguide, so now the listings show in this order:
2
3
7
4
9
11
8
6
5
10

but they still display the same program information (i.e., NBC 4 still lists golf, but it is still showing the TVGuide channel, which is channel ). So it would seem that changing the "Channel" under MediatPortal - Setup --> Television --> TV Channels --> Edit properties of TV channel does nothign but move the listing physically.

Next stop- manually changing the frequency under the Analog tab.

That did it: I had to manually change the frequencies.
