How to switch second tuner to EPG123 program guide

#1

I just upgraded to a Hauppauge dualHD tuner stick; one tuner is using the EPG123/Schedules Direct guide info as before, but the other is using the Windows ROVI guide. Is there an easy way to switch the second tuner to the EPG123/Schedules Direct guide?

Thanks.

Not really enough info here to be sure. Did you simply swap out a single tuner for a dual tuner? With any tuner hardware change you need to re-run TV tuner setup and when you do that you should have then gone through the guide selection process IIRC. Which should have set up all tuners configured with EPG123 assuming you followed the EPG123 setup procedure.

Thanks, stuartm, for your reply. I did indeed swap a single tuner stick for dual. I thought perhaps there was a easy way to add the second tuner to the guide and avoid a complete re-do. I will repeat the tuner set up.

Cheers.

Sorry, just to clarify what is needed.

If you already have EPG123 setup, then all you need to do is run TV Setup again in WMC (Step 2). When that is complete, you will need to map the guide listings to the "new" channels which can be done with the Match by: [# Number] button in the Client Guide Tool.
