Post subject:  Unencrypted HD Setup for WOW!

After doing a channel scan on my TV some weekend ago I noticed that WOW! was now sending unencrypted digital hd channels in the upper 200 channels. All the basics, abc, nbc, fox, cbs, wb, & pbs were now free to record. I currently have my two HdHomerun units connected to a hand built OTA antenna, but if we get a bad storm things can get a bit "chunky" on cbs.
Logical Channel    Broadcast  Channel    XMLid    Call Sign
200     41         19601      WXYZDT     WXYZDT   (WXYZ-DT)
201     44         20376      WWJDT      WWJDT    (WWJ-DT)
202      7         19600      WJBKDT     WJBKDT   (WJBK-DT)
203     45         20359      WDIVDT     WDIVDT   (WDIV-DT)
204     14         25126      WKBDDT     WKBDDT   (WKBD-DT)
205     43         25512      WTVSDT     WTVSDT   (WTVS-DT)
206     21         24050      WMYDDT     WMYDDT   (WMYD-DT)
208     31         51970      WPXDDT     WPXDDT   (WPXD-DT)

I initially setup Schedule Direct with the new channels, but for some reason the channels were not transferring to the backend. After a bit of tinkering I was able to get the backend to see the channels (ran a channel scan on for the HdHomerun), but there was no data for the channels.

Using MythWeb I had to manually input the XMLid numbers from Schedule Direct along with the other channel data. Now everything works like a champ. I can now record reliable HD from my cable provider, and not get the evil look from the wife when the show gets "chunky".

The strange thing is it doesn't tell you what country this provider is in. The only clue I had was service location was based on a zip code query and deep in their history page they mention they are in Denver (presumable USA).

Looks like the headquarters are in Denver Colorado and they have service areas in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Colorado.
