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.)

There is no listing available for Ch 47 on SD, I patched in the XMLTV ID.

Since channel 4 is lower signal quality, just disable it for the time being.
