Are you using a cable card? If so you should not be using 28-4. that is
the QAM station number. if the prime is in CC mode you can request the
same number of channel you see on your STB.
Also, if you follow those instructions you first attach the tuner to a
dummy recorder. That way you can fetch the listings. WHen doing this it
will pause for a bit and look like nothing is happening. but if you goto
the channel editor you can see the channels it grabed. Next you attach the
tuner to the Prime and delete the dummy.
