No longer get cablecard descrip in the Guide

#1

Post by JanSiegrist » Sun Jan 29, 2023 6:49 pm

I recently added an HDHR Flex 4K tuner to my network with an antenna.
On my Win8.1 box I ran TV / Setup - it saw the new tuners for OTA and configured the channels. In EPG I have both OTA and the CableCard linups defined.
WMC also saw the HDHR Prime cable card tuners.
In the EPG client app no matter what I do I cannot get the cablecard description of Digital Cable (CableCard) to show in scanned sources column.
Also in the main EPG app when I choose to Save and Execute - it does populate the guide with the OTA channels but all the cablecard channels display no data.

I also have a Windows 7 box where all this is working perfectly.

There must be some step I'm missing - what is it?

Thanks in advance
Jan

What does your log file say? Is the cable lineup in EPG 'Included' in the download (the balloon next to the lineup will be green)?

I just read your post a little closer. If you don't see any Digital Cable (CableCARD) channels on the left side of the client, then you either have them filtered out or you didn't include the tuners in your TV Setup. WMC will create 9999 channels if the digital cable tuners are included in TV Setup.
