    Unhappy no EPG for two channels

    Two local channels seem to have changed broadcast frequencies during the analog-to-digital switch.
    I can't get EPG listings for these two channels, all other channels are fine.
    Tried rescanning, then remapping digital to EPG wqithout success.
    What am I doing wrong?

    What are you using for your EPG source?

    You're not getting all the channels from schedules direct any more. You need to log in there and check your lineup. Witness from the log, you're getting 17 channels from them:

    But, witness again it dumps your EPG (as it should) and notes that you have 21 existing channels:

    After you fix up your schedules direct lineup, you'll need to go into config and do a complete EPG reload, then re-map channels as needed.

    Thank you for your response.
    This appears to be a Schedules Direct problem, because my lineup includes all local over-the-air stations.

    I've queried Schedules Direct about the issue.

    I didn't get a response from schedules direct about missing epg data. I wonder if the frequency changes by the fcc around the usa have caused a lot of trouble and tech support is overwhelmed.
