Windows 7: Removing analog channels completely?

Removing analog channels completely?

Hello!

I have a problem ... I'm using Gigabyte U8000 and an analog cable TV signal. Now, the TV card got some channels listed five times (small frequency variations), and others three times, some channels are normally only once. There is just one problem, I cannot remove the channels, I can only disable them. And now I have a really huge mess in my channels area. Can I do something?

Thanks!

Rerun TV setup

Assuming you are requesting this info for WMC and not another application:

Leaving your USB device powered up and on the same port, open Media Center, scroll to:

Tasks>Settings>TV>Set Up TV Signal

making sure any information requested is accurate.

If even after re-running setup you have this issue, you can manually remove the unwanted channels:

Tasks>Settings>TV>Guide>Edit Channels

and uncheck any channel you wish to not see in the Guide.

Well, the settings are correct, that's sure and it is for WMC in Windows 7. I don't really want to just disable the channel, I would like to remove it from the listing somehow, and I cannot seem to be able to do that.

That's exactly what I don't want ... I would like to remove them and not disable them. The problem, I guess, is in the fact that there is no guide and EPG for our county, so WMC had to scan for probable channels and got them wrong. But is there really no way to completely remove one channel?

Well, I have completely re-edited the channel lineup, I've renamed the channels properly, sorted them and disabled the duplicates. I cannot change anything else about the channels, like delete them or fine tune their frequency.

I'm sorry, but I guess I don't really understand your question. How do I switch from one channel to another ... is that what you mean? I use the channel + button on my remote. Other than that I don't know what you mean.

So your only option is ch+/- ?? Can you enter a channel number?
