  ÂI think you will find that you can use the channel editor in the frontend to set the metadata for the channels so that they match what is in Schedules Direct, which should make things start working as you would expect. ÂJust cycle through all the channels that were found, hit "e" and enter the channel #, XMLTV ID, and a Callsign that you like, and you should start getting expected results.

With regards to live TV not working, you might want to ensure that the default channel for the tuner is set to something that exists. Having an undefined channel as the default can cause the symptoms you are describing. The frontend logs can help a log with this too.


Oh, and on the Â"what, if anything, I need to do or re-do when Comcast flips the switch on 2011-09-23" front, you probably won't need to do anything for the digital side. You do need to keep an eye on things over time, however, as Comcast does occasionally move things around. When it happens, you'll need to rescan, and edit all of the channel information again.
