Whats the best way to implement the selection of an _ when tuning HD stations like 1_2 , 2_2, etc.

Has anyone done it?

Not that I've done it, but if I were, I've pick an unused key on the remote. Then change that binding (lircrc) to output _ instead of whatever it was outputting before....

Cecil,

Took your suggestion and reassigned the "star" to an "_" Worked like a charm.

The only I can't figure out is how to scale down the size of the numbers so I can see the _ when it displays.

You can also change the separator character and rescan... IIRC there are 3 choices, '-', '_', and '.' with the '.' being highly recommended because it's on most remotes. I remember encountering the same issue in my early experiments with ATSC tuners and quickly coming to this conclusion.

Actually, you don't have to rescan... You can change the seperator in the web settings screen under "TV", "Channel info". Change the "channum" column to your liking (. _ or -)(I haven't tried other symbols but I wonder if others would work...).
