Tweak WMC "Replace Callsign with Channel Name"

#1

Having trouble getting the "Replace Callsign with Channel Name" tweak to work. Or maybe it does something other than what I'm expecting.

Here is what I do...
1) Enable the "Replace Callsign with Channel Name" Tweak WMC option.
2) Edit the epg123.mxf service name field to "MeTV" and the callSign field to "KATUDT2" (this channel's default cs).
3) Manual import epg123.mxf
4) Match by # Number

5) Launch WMC
6) From WMC guide start recording of current program on the MeTV channel (2.2 KATUDT2).
7) Go to the "recorded tv" page.
8) Select the recorded program.

Result:
The details show 2.2 KATUDT2 Thu, Sep 24, 2020 1 min

Expected result:
The details show 2.2 MeTV Thu, Sep 24, 2020 1 min

The "Replace Callsign with Channel Name" is only for the guide display, not anything else. So rather than see the callsign in the channel column of the guide you will see the service name.

Ah ha, I was outside the scope. Guess I'll have to stick to custom call signs.
Thanks.
