Transfering scaned channels from Transedit to DVBViewer

Recommended Posts


I have had DVBViewer for quite a few years now and always had the same problem. I hope one of you clever peeps can explain what the correct procedure is:-


1) I open transedit with my 28.2 ini file that is stored in the DVBViewer directory ( I also have one in a directory C:/ProgramData CMUV?)


2) I do a "Scan all" (that currently 78 transponders as of March 2015) I have filter 1 set to free to air and filter 2 set to both, It finds 390 channels.


3) I press update all button and then close the scanner page.


4) Then I remember to press the save button on the Transedit page, this i am thinking has updates the 28.2 ini file with all the channels it found during the scan?


5) It looks like this has saved and opened from the CMUV directory, any idea why do i have 2 directories with similar info in?


6) I copied the 28.2 ini so i have the same file in both places, as i dont know what i am doing.


7) I open DVBViewer NOW WHAT should i do? I go to the TV/Radio tab and click on channel list, there isn't one, so I click on channel editor and then try and use the button bottom left, which says "Imports a channel list" Excellent i think I can import the list i have just saved, I select it and press open, the box closes and I'm back to the Channel list Editor with NO CHANNELS.


Can someone please tell me what on earth i am doing wrong?

This is certainly one of the confusing aspects of DVBViewer. I always scan from within DVBv and don't use transedit at all - for basic scans and updates that is sufficient. I've only needed it for fault finding, and even then very rarely indeed.

      I have problem with TransEdit v. and ATSC 8VSB WinTV-HVR 950Q tuner.
      I don't see "Bandwidth" option anymore and I have error "Invalid or incomplete input".
      For example, in TransEdit v3.9.8.0 I can choose "bandwidth" and no problem to add channel.
      Please check attached screenshots for both versions.
      I'm using Windows 10 x64.
      Please suggest.

      After a lot of time requesting the Streaming button in the TransEdit tool, finally the last version 4.2.1 has it! THANK YOU! :-)
      Now, I have another suggestion. If you use SAT>IP servers as your tuners, you know for sure that a lot of servers doesn't support the Full Transport streaming. Yes, almost all support "pids=all", and this it's great. However, when the TS has a high bandwidth, or it goes over a specific bitrate, in this case the resulting RTP streaming has a lot of Continuity Errors. This, isn't a problem for the internal Analyzer of the TransEdit, as the PSI tables can be readed multiple times. However, if you like to do an streaming, this can be a problem.
      So, here it's my suggestion: At time, when you select with the mouse multiple pids in the Analyzer and you start the streaming (CTRL+S), then you're sending only the selected pids. And this it's great! Thank you! However, the TransEdit are in fact receving the full TS. So the filtering it's internal. But, if you include in the configuration some option, it should be possible to request to the tuner to only send the selected pids. And when the streaming stops, or some change occurs in the pid list, then update the list (and when no streaming, then restablish the "pids=all").
      This will be a must have for SAT>IP servers! With this any external tool can be used for TS analysis, using the TransEdit as a TUNER.
      Please, consider it.

      It would be great, if DVBViewer and Recording Service use virtual channel names instead of actual when working with Kodi like DVBLink or TVHeadend do to group channels with the same or different actual names from different sources under one virtual.
      For example,
      > Virtual Channel A shown in Kodi:
      - Actual Channel A from Source 1,
      - Actual Channel A from Source 2,
      - Actual Channel AB from Source 3,
      > Virtual Channel B shown in Kodi:
      - Actual Channel B from Source 1,
      - Actual Channel C from Source 15,
      - Actual Channel AC from Source 19.
      Otherwise there's a mess of channels in Kodi and user cannot group channels depending on his will

      Updated to DVBViewer Pro 6.0.4, DMS 2.0.4 and TrandEdit 4.2.1
      If there's an ongoing recording in DMS , it will "grab" the tuner from DMS without any warning or notification.
      At the meantime however, DMS "Status" tab still displays as normal (except for data rate decreasing and file size remaining the same). Seems that it does not even know the tuner what "robbed" away by TransEdit.
      See this behavior in 2 of my PCs. Is it a new - "feature" - of the new version? In previous versions TransEdit will tell me something like "Initialize device failed" or "No hardware available".
