[mythtv-users] Translator Station Recording Question – Ch 4 and 47

Have a temporary OTA reception problem and haven’t been able to figure
out the solution. Locally there is a channel on RF 4 (US – VHF band)
with transmitter issues; they have a repeater/translator at RF 47 (UHF).
I am able to receive both stations and while they are repairing their
main site (RF 4) I would like to concurrently record from their
secondary site (RF 47), so record both stations. The problem is I am
only able to have automatic recordings from Ch 4; with their
intermittent transmitter problems I’d like to be able to record both
stations. (I’m fringe to Ch 47, so some pixelation, which is why I don’t
want to to ‘switch’ permanently to the translator/repeater station.)
Have tried setting recordings for “this channel only” on both the Ch 4
and Ch 47 listings, in Schedule Recordings, ignore duplicates. Worked
for one recording rule but not a second.
And not sure if this has something to do with things but the Programme
Guide (the grid display option) only displays about 25-26 hours in
advance while 4 and all the other stations display 13 days out (thanks
to SchedulesDirect). There is no listing available for Ch 47 on SD, I
patched in the XMLTV ID.
