Wrong station ID in EPG123


Post by DavePeaseinMA » Fri Jul 31, 2020 9:52 pm

Provider:Charter Spectrum - Digital, Type:SD-JSON, Zip:, Lineup:USA-MA54546-X
re: 777: WBTSCD "WBTSCD (WBTS-CD)" [NBC] (stationID 91446)

This lineup channel 777 is WBTSCD, NBC Boston. The EPG123
configuration app shows this correctly. The EPG123 client Guide
Tool V1.3.9 shows "WYCN Boston HDTV".

This causes there to be no scheduling entries for 777 on the Windows Media Center schedule.
Note that WBTS and WYCN have a history where they swapped ID's, so
the WYCN related to channel 777 is old data that needs to be corrected to WBTS.

Refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WYCN-LD

** Since the channel number 777 is correct, how/can do I use the "Match by: # Number" option to possibly get around this issue?

Just make sure your Charter lineup is selected on the right side of the client and click the Match by: [# Number] button.

I would suggest you do the manual method of subscribing (mapping) a single channel, but if your channel in the client on the left side says "WYCN Boston HDTV", it sounds like it is mapped to an old MS/Rovi lineup. If you take a look at the 'Subscribed Lineup' column on the left side, if it doesn't start with EPG123 then it is mapped to a MS/Rovi lineup and hence no guide listings.
