I can watch HDHomeRun channels by adding a UPnP source, and I have TV Guide set up with an episode guide that matches my cable provider. However, I don't know how to create the mapping between the EPG and the HDHomeRun channels.

I can help you if you wait a day

Shucks, bry's the best!

Anyone using hdhomerun prime with a cable card?

Can you tell me what the naming scheme is for the upnp channel lineup list? does it use conventional naming ie, WNBC, WCBS ?

Bry, I am more than willing to wait a day Smile

@Lunatixz:I am using the prime w/ cable card. When I add my UPnP source, there are two folders below it:

- Favorites
- Channels

In the favorites folder the channels that you mark as favorites on the main HDHomeRun status / setup screen.

The naming scheme is "<channel number> <name>"

With the Comcast Xfinity package I have, my HD channels are in the 700+ range and the names are as follows

Code:
702 KTVUD
703 DKNTV
704 KROND
705 KPIXD
706 KICUHD
707 KGOHD

When I play channel 702 (Fox) I see this in xbmc.log

Code:
11:24:57 T:1512   DEBUG: UPNP: Updating resume point for item upnp://910BF3AB-E59B-337B-85CC-8CFC5F2D7C06/Channels%2fv702/

In the episode guide from schedulesdirect, channel 702 looks like this:

PHP Code:
<channel id="I19571.labs.zap2it.com">
    <
display-name>702 KTVUDT</display-name>
    <
display-name>702 KTVUDT CA04487:X</display-name>

Thanks, you supplied me with great info... I only wonder why...

702 KTVUD is displayed in your UPNP
and 702 KTVUDT in your xmltv id... what happened to the "T"?
is it missing because of a typo... or does upnp sometimes cut off channel names?

When I saw this I actually assumed it was a typo but it is indeed KTVUD... I just double checked the xml file and this behavior the same for several of the channels. KROND becomes KRONDT, for example...
