I need help with a wintv-hvr 2250

I've spent several hours over the last couple of days trying to get my system to work. I've been running Beyond TV for a few years and would like to convert to Sage. I've downloaded the latest beta. But, I cannot get the channels to map correctly. If I just stick with analog, it seems ok but when I try to load the QAM channels, i get really confused. Mapping was so simple with Beyond TV.

Here's an example. I like VPT WVTA which is on the Comcast system as channel 2 for the standard definition but on 85-2 for HD. However, 85-2 doesn't show up on a channel scan in Sage but does in Beyond TV where I can map it to Channel 2 with no problem.

I tried to add a channel using the station code (11969) and the channel # of 85-2 but there's no signal.

Channel 4 out of Boston shows up and has 81-2 as the HD channel but on the program guide there a blank. And, I cannot figure out how to map it to Channel 4 so that the guide shows what's on.

I'm taking the feed directly from the cable with no box between the wall and the 2250. There are about 40 digital channels that are found and 17 analog channels.

I'm running XP pro with 2 gigs ram and all the latest updates.

I think record works fine (if I could figure out the channel mapping) and I can play back all the recordings from Beyond TV.

Is there a simple, step by step instruction on how to set up my machine?

I'll try anything.

Please help.
