I'm not sure how this applies elsewhere, but in the US there are two different methods for assigning channel frequencies by carriers. These are called HRC and IRC and they follow a specific formula but differ slightly in frequency. I had to manually add each channel to ChrisTV. In fact, I'm still working on it. Although this could be a simple upload of a channel list for me I figured I'd ask for a feature request since this is likely a common problem for anyone with a TV tuner in the US. My carrier is Comcast Cable and they transmit using HRC frequencies. How about a DropDown box with 4 options for scanning (Standard, HRC, IRC, and Broadcast)? I attached a link that describes the difference in frequencies and gives formulas for calculating frequencies based on channel number. Coincidentally channels 5 and 6 happen to match between HRC and IRC so if someone is only receiving channels 5 and 6 they may be using the wrong method to calculate channels. ChrisTV managed to find 5 and 6 and no other channels for me. I'll continue entering them in manually until I have all the channels I want, but I really hope you guys add this to the next Lite release.

Multumesc mult,

Anthony

ChrisTV PVR offers 3 recording methods, Autoscan by frequency should give the best results, more details here :
