How do I add one channel?


Post by resarfekim » Thu Jul 25, 2019 1:48 am

Sorry for the newb question. I spent a few hours setting up EPG123 for my WMC, and it's working well for about a month.
I need to add one channel. I added it via Settings - TV - Guide - Edit Channels.
The channel works, but once the scheduled epg123_update Task runs, the channel disappears.

I'm assuming there's an easy way to do this, but I don't want to break something and have to start over.

Open EPG123 to include the station in your download. It sounds like when your scheduled task runs, you have the automatch feature enabled... if you don't download the station, EPG123 will disable it in the guide.

After you include it in the download, go ahead and do a Save & Execute to verify. Once it is done, open EPG123 Client and verify the channel is on the left side and it is subscribed to a station.
