I was playing around with the Muzak channels and wanted to record some of
what was on to the internal HD, but since the pid info was not complete the Azbox
would not allow recording of the channels.
Not one to give up I decided to try a few things.
Here is what I found to work on the azbox.
Once you have manually entered the name and audio pids you can
go back in to the pid menu screen and then manually enter the following
SID #'s.. use the last 3 digits of the audio pid.
So if the audio pid was 7566 for that channel use 566 for the SID #.
for the PMT:: use one number less then the audio pid.
again as an example if the audio pid was 7566 use 565.
I had the Muzak channels set up as TV channels instead of Radio,
personal preference since I wanted to see them on my main menu screen
without the bother of going to the audio menu..
So in my case I used 65535 as my video pid and Mpeg 2 as video and audio type.
Now the Azbox allows for recording of the Muzak channels.
The first time I attempted to place the pid info on that pid menu screen
the Azbox would automatically change it back on it's own and the process
would not work, but after several different attempts after the channels were first installed
with just the audio pid info the azbox now accepts the change.
Then at the time it did accept the pmt and sid numbers the audio would
not play smoothly, sort of stop and start type of event would occur.
Then when using the 8190 pcr and the last 3 digits of the audio pid and
then figuring out the pmt pid it played fine from then on.
This is interesting since some of the stations are only on a few weeks
before they change to something else. Especially the holiday stations
which change for the different seasons.
Right now the old holiday Pop is playing Octoberfest,
and in November there will be several other Holiday music channels
with various types of holiday music playing.
I believe the same type of setup will work with the Micro HD receiver also.
That one requires you to use the Ali editor program to manually enter the pid
info but will allow for up to 3 different audio pids at a time per channel.
I toyed with that the other day and was able to record from the Micro HD to
a usb stick but only for 2 hrs at a time.
