Nothing. Just click the Match by: [# Number] button on the left side above the channel listings (while your EPG123 HDHR-CC to MXF Converter lineup is selected on the right.

Not sure what you mean by waiting a week to get your tuners to show... in WMC? In the mail? All your tuners should have been available from the beginning during setup.

No guide, just a video for my OTA setup using hdhr2mxf. The match step in the video wasn't necessary because it was OTA and I didn't realize that CC setups would need it. HDHR2MXF was developed to be a stand-alone program with the following switches.

"-o {path\to\output\file.mxf]" sets the output mxf file name and location
"-nologos" does not include the station logos provided by Silicon Dust
"-import" will automatically import the mxf file into WMC
"-update" will simulate the epg123.exe program to create the mxf file in the output folder as epg123.mxf

Another note on the match step... it appears that it is only required for the CC and possibly DC tuners. All other types (US and DT) would have information in the mxf file that would allow WMC to automatically match the listings to the channels on the first import. The CC tuners don't work because the channels in WMC do not contain the call sign of the station that would be the only way for it to work. Also of note, though it did not automatically match for you on the first import, once the scheduled task was run, it would have happened. So if you didn't click the match button, and just ran your scheduled task, the client automatch routine would have taken care of it.
