Clarifying upgrade process from 1.0.x to 1.1.4

Post#1 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:40 pm

Looking at a test upgrade from 1.0.2 to 1.1.4... I recall there being some process to run a migration utility and import an MXF file. However, I don't see any of this in the documentation in the 1.1.4 w7 zip file, nor the utility. Is this no longer required, or is a step upgrade from 1.0.x to some 1.1.x release needed to go to 1.1.4?

EDIT: I found the utility under older posts, for 1.1.3. Trying that.

OK, so that seemed to have worked OK. Never mind me...

I just wanted to make you late adapters to suffer a little. :angel:

Truth be told, if you use Automatch, you don't need the utility ... just easier to tell everyone to use it since no harm done.

Is it possible to install v1.0.2 on another machine then do the migration as a test? What I mean is, can I get v1.0.2 still? This is my main PC and I haven't done anything with the guide like moving channels about with guide tool, although I probably would do just a few on the test PC just to be sure. My biggest fear is loosing my extensive custom channel mapping because for WAF I made all of Charter's channels the same numbers as Uverse channels, which is actually a more logical lineup anyhow. Charter just squeezed in channels all over the place when more bandwidth was available and is a complete mess so mine is much cleaner. My secondary fear is loosing the recording history because she records a LOT and then watches at least 2 to maybe 4 shows every single day. If that is lost, I'm dead meat but most of it is not copy protected so can be played in Emby or found in Sonarr if they are copy protected.

You sure can. You can go back through older posts on the website or go directly here to see which packages are still available on the server (http://epg123.garyan2.net/downloads/). I kept 1.0.2 around just for you Sammy2 ... I value my customer's lives and reputations! :lol:

LOL.. Just for me? You know what I go through for WAF around here!

I want to move forward but saw a few posts of borked guides so I'm a little reluctant. I don't want to fix it 'til it's broken!
