Use QAM Remap to set up HDHomerun for Beyond TV 4.9

Posted by on January 22, 2009

Beyond TV stopped recording for me last week, and I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t bringing in any channels. The Beyond TV 4.9 upgrade seemed to go smoothly, but then it suddenly stopped tuning. I went through a lot of reinstalls of both HDHomerun and Beyond TV, but the channel tuning still wasn’t working. I then decided to rescan with the HDHomerun setup just to start fresh with the channel lineup.

I went through a lot of frustration trying to get the Major and Minor Channels to show up on the set up for Beyond TV 4.9. I would choose Beyond TV as the application in the HDHomerun set up, but nothing would show up on Major or Minor channels when I imported the Digital Cable XML file into I took a look at the file with a text editor, and there was no Major or Minor channels, so the problem was with the XML file. I then chose QAM Remap, and the XML file generated had the Major and Minor Channels that I needed.

The nice thing about all my reinstalls of HDHomerun, BeyondTV, .Net, and Visual C++ is it looks like ShowSqueeze and SmartSkip now work again since they were borked on my system a few upgrades back.
