|Post subject:||Unencrypted HD Setup for WOW!|
After doing a channel scan on my TV some weekend ago I noticed that WOW! was now sending unencrypted digital hd channels in the upper 200 channels. All the basics, abc, nbc, fox, cbs, wb, & pbs were now free to record. I currently have my two HdHomerun units connected to a hand built OTA antenna, but if we get a bad storm things can get a bit "chunky" on cbs.
Logical Channel Broadcast Channel XMLid Call Sign
200 41 19601 WXYZDT WXYZDT (WXYZ-DT)
201 44 20376 WWJDT WWJDT (WWJ-DT)
202 7 19600 WJBKDT WJBKDT (WJBK-DT)
203 45 20359 WDIVDT WDIVDT (WDIV-DT)
204 14 25126 WKBDDT WKBDDT (WKBD-DT)
205 43 25512 WTVSDT WTVSDT (WTVS-DT)
206 21 24050 WMYDDT WMYDDT (WMYD-DT)
208 31 51970 WPXDDT WPXDDT (WPXD-DT)
I initially setup Schedule Direct with the new channels, but for some reason the channels were not transferring to the backend. After a bit of tinkering I was able to get the backend to see the channels (ran a channel scan on for the HdHomerun), but there was no data for the channels.
Using MythWeb I had to manually input the XMLid numbers from Schedule Direct along with the other channel data. Now everything works like a champ. I can now record reliable HD from my cable provider, and not get the evil look from the wife when the show gets "chunky".

The strange thing is it doesn't tell you what country this provider is in. The only clue I had was service location was based on a zip code query and deep in their history page they mention they are in Denver (presumable USA).

Looks like the headquarters are in Denver Colorado and they have service areas in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Colorado.
