Anyone know if they'll ever update the database? My area has many new OTA channels that are not in the database.
Probably never. All the markets are outdated. Since they discontinued it and no longer support it, I would almost safely say there's no chance. It doesn't work for all channels now because there is a certain TMS ID number that each station has and the AM21 is too stupid to understand them over a certain number. All the new subchannels have numbers that are too big. So if it scans in a signal that doesn't match the precious database, it just ignores it. There was a time when the Genie server was first released that it would display all the scanned channels, those which were not in the database just showed "regular schedule" as guide data. At least the channel was there. I wish someone smarter than I could hack into that thing and fiddle with something to make it work that way again!
True, flipping back and forth is a pain in the neck, but at least you'd have everything available to you. Only a suggestion.Yes, I thought about that however would love to be able to access everything from one device and not have to flip back and forth between TIVO and DIRECTV
Same here ....True, flipping back and forth is a pain in the neck, but at least you'd have everything available to you. Only a suggestion.
