Issue with EPG123 or Schedules Direct?

#1

So today I noted no data on WEWSDT from yesterdays run using v7.6, thought this was odd so I went into edit listings and there is no longer a WEWSDT listing (ABC HD in 44646) there is a listing for WEWS (ABC SD in 44646). So I selected the WEWS listing and figured all would get sorted out on my next update. Ran V7.6 and double checked the lineup from SD to see if it had the channel listed and checked - it did. I remained hopeful remembering some SD issues yesterday.

I updated to v9.1 and ran it, success! WEWSDT is back in WMC listings!! But wait - now WKYCDT is missing (NBC HD in 44646) there is still a listing for WKYC so I checked that for now. I re-started EPG to check that the channel was listed and is checked - it was.

So what is going on? Is this an EPG issue? or SD issue? And what do I do about it?

Obviously things are going to record and I can care less about seeing an "HD" in the listings, but I am concerned there is a problem with EPG or SD or dare I say it me!

Thanks for reading and any and all help and advice.

You can't have easy problems, can you? I'm going to try to get a handle on what you're seeing ...

The disappearing WEWSDT and WKYCDT are missing from the Guide and/or epg123 lineup? If it's missing from the lineup, the problem is with SD, especially if the listing changes to WEWS and WKYC. If it is missing in the guide, I'm thinking Microsoft/Rovi is still attached somewhere.

Figured it out. The station isn't missing, but your lineup has both the SD and HD assigned to the same channel. It will just keep swapping between the 2 after every update. Right now, just go into the GUI and disable the SD channels ...
