I followed Hi, I was wondering if maybe you could provide some insight to my windows media center problem. I was having trouble downloading the guide for my area, I tried about 15 different zip codes but they were all still missing 2 channels, fox and another one. So I used instructions from earlier in this thread (http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/vie ... start=1100
) which I pasted below. They worked perfectly and I was able to download the guide for my area for all channels, but my problem is now that 2 of the channels that were coming in perfectly now can't get a signal at all. I didn't move my antenna at all since 10 minutes before following the instructions and they were coming in perfectly, but now no matter how I move it I can't seem to pick up the channel, and the tv signal shows that I'm only getting in the red zone with one bar out of six. Do you know if something in the solution below might have caused this and how I can get the channels back, even if I have to sacrifice the correct guide listings? Thanks for reading.
