Finally got it working like it should. Of course part of it was user error! Fiddled around with settings a bit and everything is working as it should... Yay! Just sent you a donation as I finally got on the bandwagon after using your program for quite a while now. Sorry for how long it took but better late than never! Besides, us AZ homies gots ta stick together! lol
Thanks again for all the work on this program and the support you give everyone!

Do you not use logos, then?


Sorry for the late reply, been off the internet due to the holidays.

I do use logos. They are the only thing in the first column of my guide. Since I never tune directly by channel number, and only through the guide, I don't need to know CBS is channel 1, etc. I also don't need to see "WXYZ" or whatever the callsign is next to the logo, since that is usually either duplicate information (WCBS is CBS) or confusing (WXYZ is NBC). The callsign is still tracked in the back end, I can get to it if I edit the channel in the guide, as that is what is actually sorted on when I sort alphabetically.

Update - I see the feature in the latest tweak utility. Thank you!

Quite all right. I'm strictly OTA here, so my question was along those lines that the WQRK call signs don't mean anything at all and sorting by name has no benefit. Nevertheless, I implemented your request and actually like the look of it very much. I didn't think I would, but it grew on me pretty quickly.

You can pick up the new version of EPG123 with the new tool and give it a go. There is also an active beta version of the client tool with some improvements located here (http://epg123.garyan2.net/downloads/epg ... t_beta.zip).
