New channel

Post by shawn_75 »

A local station recently added a new channel "Twist", but there is no guide data for this channel.

Channel 11.5 - Twist
Main channel 11.1 - WHAS

1080AA9C - Device ID

Thank you

Looks like Gracenote doesn't have any data for WHASDT5 or a national listing for Twist. If it's brand new then it might be in soft-launch and will be getting guide data as soon as the station officially launches/submits guide data to Gracenote.

Thank you.

When guide data becomes available, will it automatically show up or should I wait a few months and request you check again?

Gracenote created an entry for WHASDT5 in their database today with a stationId of 118841

As for Phoenix, Twist is on 12.6, and they created an entry for KPNXDT6 with a stationId of 118820

Usually it takes Gracenote a few weeks between the time new stationId entries are created and when they start appearing in their local antenna lineups.

Yes in phoenix the program number is 6 but the virtual channel number is 12.5... hope that doesn't mess things up. 35.3 is program 5 and probably explains why it put that lineup there.

Noticed today that zap2it has listings for TWIST in my market... still not showing up as such for SD's apps but typically it takes a day after showing up at zap...

I don't yet have guide data for Twist on WHASDT5.

This goofy station. Audio is still echo-y and they seem to be encoding Twist at a low framerate. It's weirdly jerky.

looks fine here in Phoenix (was a little worried earlier it didn't seem to get it automatically overnight).
