Channel Renaming

Postby ellisdustin » Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:41 pm

Is it possible to rename a channel on the HD homerun channel lineup? I have several channels from my cable provider that come across as 5000 and unknown. I would like to rename them for easier use. I have a hdhomerun connect duo.

At least not as far as the hardware goes (which is what their apps use) without having your cable company change things. Third party software is another story.

For channels to not be in the 5000 range the provider must provide the appropriate "psip" data of virtual channel number and name. The actual number assigned should be considered random and may vary between devices in the same household and occasionally even on the same device after another scan.
