Tuner/Guide problem 49.3 WEDW-1

Post by titantractor271 »

Hi,
My TV Lineup in NY Broadcast shows WEDW-1 (49.1), but for some reason it's not showing 49.3 WEDW-1. They skip 49.2 on other guides and I see 49.1/49.3. So I believe that the system is somehow not seeing 49.3 because 49.2 is not available. When I run the HDHomeRun Config GUI on windows, I tune my tuner to 49.1. It shows the channel as us-bcase 21 and then I can look in the drop down to see 3:49.1 WEDW-1, 4:43.1 WZME, 6:34.1 WTXX-1, 7:34.2 WTXX-2, 8:34.3 WTXX-3, 10:43.2 Sonelife, 11:43.3 WMZE. i.e. I don't see 49.3 in that list.

Is this something that can be fixed? Is it a bug?

From what I can tell from other reports in the area, WEDW-3 might not exist anymore.

WEDW is temporarily sharing their half of the RF 21 bandwidth with WTXX-LD (the 34-x channels), so they're now only broadcasting CPTV in SD on 49-1. Once WTXX-LD finishes building out their post-repack signal and leaves the share, WEDW will bring the other stations back and go HD again.

Thank you. I see it is on a program guide (other guide vendor), so I thought it should be available. Based on your reply, I'll stand by for this, read and assume it will come as you describe (i.e. when WEDW brings the other stations back.) :D
