So I had a drive die and have to rebuild... So I found my backup of guide tool, but after reading on the new EPG123 update. It says there is no need for GT anymore.
But I am at a loss on how to re-arrange channel order within EPG123 like I could with GT. Doing it in MCE is a long and tedious proccess.

What am I missing?

Thanks a lot.

To quickly change the channel numbers of your stations, Guide Tool will still be necessary (for now). EPG123 can only link channels to lineup stations, change channel call signs, and enable/disable guide channels.

That's alright, also something weird happening. I followed the install guide. But for some reason it keeps assigning the wrong channel ID's. Like it has Channel 4 HD but was actually E4. It wasn't the only channel, but not sure how to resolve this?

What lineup are you using? Be aware, lineups may have multiple stations assigned to the same channel number which may result in what you are seeing.

I was using lineup 1 and 2 as I have a dual T and dual S card, so I thought lineup 1 was for T and 2 was for S. Is this wrong?

Sorry, I didn't mean the tabs... you have no control over that. I meant what channel lineups are you using. You can see what they are in the trace.log file in your epg123 folder.

Okay, I think you have a couple things going on.

A couple possibilities...

Since you have 2 different sources that have the same channel numbers, you can not use the 'Automatically match...'/'Automatch' option. The other possibility is the lineup from SD is incorrect for E4 and/or Channel 4.

Your automatch needs to be disabled which means you will need to manually match/correct the proper station listings to the guide channels.
