Digital Channel Changed -- Media Center does not find new channel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,


    WSYX in Columbus, OH changed it's digital channel on August 30. I went to TV under settings and ran a scan so that Media Center would find the relocated channel. It does not find the new channel. I have even reset all the options and had Media Center start from scratch, but it always finds the old, now non-working channel. How do I get Media Center to add the new channel? I have also tried adding the channel manually (under Guide). I know the new channel is UHF 48-1, but then Media Center asks for a two-digit "assigned frequency" and I have no idea what that is. Googling hasn't helped either. I had my TV do a channel scan, and it had no problem finding the relocated channel. No such luck with Media Center. Any ideas?

  • I'm thinking that "assigned frequency" is the station's old analog channel number - in your case, 06(?)
    Give that a try?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    I recommend you remove the old Channel firstly, and then adding the new Channel again. Please refer to “To remove channels from the Guide” and “To add a missing broadcast TV channel” here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-media-center/learn-more/record-tv/tutorials/broadcast-tv-setup-guide.aspx#Delete

     

    Hope it helps!

     

    Best Regards,

    Miya Yao

  • Same problem here, fresh rescan does not find WSYX. Changing to a nearby zip code still finds the old off air channel. The link sent by Miya goes to a generic help page, not relevant to media center. Please post anything you tried there might be a solution here.
