Ok i know this isnt really the place for this but I have been searching around for the past 3 days trying to figure out how to setup qam channels over my hvr-1800 and have figured out nothing. when I scan it seems to find nothing yet I know there are channels that have HD cause I can watch them on my sony bravia. any help would be much appreciated.

Did you do as I suggested on your previous request and install the Hauppauge software and configure it there first? Then you can configure it in Sage.

<clarification: that's what I had to do for OTA HD, so I assume QAM would be the same >

QAM on HVR-1800

I recently fought this problem for about a week in a half. At first I could not find any channels in WinTV or SageTV. Then clear QAM channels showed up in WinTV. I found doing a scan in Sage provided inconsistent results. I have dual HVR-1800s and when I would scan the digital lineup I would only get two major network channels, when I scanned the standard I would get them all.

The problem with doing my analog and digital both through the standard lineup was the analog channels replaced the digital. I was also not able to get any EPG data on the HD channels.

Upon reloading XP for the 4th time, various problems forcing the reloads, I managed to think of saving my .frq files from the successful scans I had done previousy onto a different hard drive. When I went to find the QAM channels, WinTV could not see any.

I loaded SageTV and instead of doing a scan this time I manually added the channels to the digital lineup, using the information from the .frq files I had saved. I am now able to tune all the QAM channels available. It isn't a lot since I have a standard basic package through Comcast, but I get all the major networks, plus a CW channel and PBS. The EPG information is showing up and correct as well.

I added the analog tuners to the standard cable lineup and the program guide works great with the analog/digital combined.

It was a long frustrating process but everything works great now, the HVR-1800s look really good and are doing a fantastic job.
