Deleted Channel. How do I get it back?


Post by daveinames » Wed Jul 19, 2017 1:25 am

I deleted a channel in epg123 client and I dont see how to get it back.

I see the channel on the right hand side and I can right click on it and I see subscribe but it seems to be greyed out and wont let me click on it.

I also have both CableCard and OTA tuners. I was I selected both sets of data from SD and I have them available as lineup1 and lineup2 but I cant seem to get lineup2 (OTA) to work. Again I see the station on the right hand column but I cant seem to "subscribe."

Any advice?

I have never found a way to undelete a channel. You can get the channel back in 1 of 2 ways.
  • settings->TV->TV Signal->Scan for More Channels->Delete All (if available), and then Scan Again.
  • settings->TV->Guide->Add Missing Channels-> enter the information to add the channel manually
  • 3rd way is to nuke it and start over, but that's kind of drastic
The way subscribe works in the epg123 client, you have to select at least 1 channel on the left side and 1 channel on the right side to subscribe. Subscribe is the same as editing the listings in WMC to attach guide listings to a selected channel. For the OTA channels, do you have the channels available on the left side? If not, then you don't have any OTA channels scanned in and will have to perform a TV Setup again.
