KVIE missing from Left Column

#1

Post by danielk04 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 11:31 pm

New user. EPG123 client guide tool with windows media center.
Go to install instructions, step 3 part 3, matching channels.
My right column lineup shows my available over the air stations perfectly, among them channel 6.1,KVIE, a PBS station, good so far.
My left column is missing channel 6.1, KVIE, so of course it is not visible in WMC guide.
What am I doing wrong?

KVIE on 6.1 looks like it physically on VHF channel 9 did you manually add it to your guide as a scan will not look for VHF stations?

Looks like KVIE is broadcast on VHF channel 9. Win7 WMC does not scan the VHF band so you will have to add it manually. The WMC way is here. A quick way using the client is to click the green '+' button and add 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4 on physical channel 9. Do them all at once... once you close the add channel windows then epg123 has to close and reopen.

Thanks guys, your suggestions worked.
All I needed to know was that 6=9.
Amazing but true.
