I have been an Emby Premiere member for several years and I have an active subscription to Schedules Direct which is good through August 2019. Tonight I noticed that the Fox local cable channel is not populating in the program guide even though the channel is active. Consequently, I was unable to schedule a live program recording this evening. I remembered reading about the transition away from Schedules Direct with the release of Emby Server 4.0. Rather than trying to troubleshoot a Schedules Direct problem, I would like to switch to the new gracenote-provided guide. My server has already updated to version 4.001. When I looked on the forum to find out how to make the switch, this is what I saw:
"If you are setting up the server fresh, then you should use our new Emby guide provider, which will be the default. If you are already using Schedules Direct, then you can continue to use it through the remainder of your Schedules Direct subscription. Schedules Direct has pledged to continue to honor your subscriptions, and we thank them for that." That really doesn't tell me ANYTHING about how to make the switch.
I also read that "If you are setting up your server from scratch, all you have to do is enter your zip code in your server dashboard settings." I can find nowhere to do this on my dashboard. It's been years since I subscribed and set up Schedules Direct and I can't remember how it was done. Also, there is no longer any mention of Emby on the Schedules Direct website supported products list.
I would appreciate your help in making the transition from Schedules Direct to gracenote.it the Emby Guide Provider (gracenote?) if that would solve the problem with missing channels. (All of my live TV is delivered through Spectrum cable using an HDHomeRun Prime tuner and a cablecard. I am not using local over-the-air channels.)
