This thread is quite old. Please consider starting a new thread rather than reviving this one.
Having trouble that my TT3200 PCI card can not find all channels.
This transponder has no channels:
23.5°E Astra 3B 12187.50 H 225 Europe DVB-S2 8PSK 29900 2/3 M7 Group, 59.2 Mbps 3 3225
Other Astra3B transponders find channels without problems.
Thanks for your reply
IPTV channels can be different even if they have the same Network ID, Stream ID and Service ID.
Such channels can't be used for external EPG (eg. Xepg) since they will have the same EPGChannelID.
This problem is old and it was actually Lars (R.I.P.) who suggested to manually change the network ID within DVBViewer. This is a bit tidy so I want to do it programmatically.
For that I need to know how to decide whether 2 IPTV channels are duplicates of each others. Assuming Network ID, Stream ID and Service ID are the same
1) It it sufficient to test if additionally IP (stored in TunerData.Frequency) is the same?
2) If no to 1), what else should be compaired ? (Source IP?, Video PID?,...)
As a matter of general interest I would like to know when ATSC channels are duplicates as well:
3) Is Equallity of Network ID, Stream ID and Service ID sufficient?
4) What about TynerType=5 (Stream)?
For DVBViewer Pro 5.6.1, from either the menu bar -> Favorites menu or from the right-click -> Favorites menu, selecting any of the channels results in absolutely nothing. From the Channel Edit menu -> Favorites menu, however, selecting any of the channels results in DVBViewer tuning the selected channel. Even when the Favorites.xml file is deleted and DVBViewer creates a new one, DVBViewer still does nothing when a channel is selected from a "created from scratch" Favorites menu. (The Favorites menu of course works correctly under DVBViewer Pro 5.5.2.)

Click the Home link in the download table. A tutorial example with a lot of screenshots is available. You will find that XchannelEdit has a quite different approach compared to the DVBViewer channel editor. It works in a very direct way on a copy of channels.dat but should be quite safe to use since the channels.dat will never be overwritten unless a successfull backup has been taken. Thanks to Griga for redocumenting channels.dat (It's good!) and to CiNcH for providing me with a big sample channels.dat (DVB-T and DVB-s). This is the basis for me daring to provide a quite detailed Channel Info. Please check if the Channel Info is correct and feel free to suggest improvements. Feel free to comment.
Just downloaded the new V126.96.36.199 version.
Until now, when selecting CHANNELS in the OSD menu, my neatly edited FAVORITES list was shown.
The new version, when selecting CHANNELS, enters somewhere in the full scanned channellist (in my case thousands of entries).
Does anybody know how to enter the favorites list in the OSD menu?
Apart from this small inconvenience I am really addicted for more than 10 years to this marvelous programme.
Thanks in advance.
