I'm new to HDTV. Have comcast uber-basic cable (Longmont CO) which gave me channels 2-22 on my old analog box. Hook up my Hauppauge 2250, scan and voila I got a whoppin' 90 channels!!
1) But...when I go into channel mapping most of them show unknown channel...so I don't know how to assign them. I'm using SChedules direct and switch from the "Cable" lineup to the "CableDigital" to get more than channels 2-22. I have watched a few of the Unknown channels and one I saw was ABC Family HD, so I was able to map that one. But not all stations put their little logo on the screen for me to see. Is there a proper way to figure out what these channels are?
2) Some of the known stations I do not see any reference to in my Schedules Direct lineup...ION is one that comes to mind. What do I do with these? Is this normal?
3) The bulk map did not work for me. By default everything was set to DVB/ATSC TV for the EPG. When I set up a channel using the details menu then when to bulk mapping, mapped a channel and it said, would you like for me to try to match by name...I say yes and nothing happens. Perhaps its because so many of them are Unknown? But there were a few where the name was spot on and I was able to match it by hand so not sure why it could auto match??
4) One of the channels I mapped manually now shows program info but its 1 hour off...PC time is set properly but the show that was actually playing was listed as being on 1 hour later. Anyone know what is going wrong?
I have applied the latest cumulative patch (I *think*).
