Disappearing main channels

#1

Post by Cheenis » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:29 pm

For the second time now my main channels have disappeared (BBC1, 2, ITV, C4, etc) Most are still there, but it's the main ones that have gone. No idea how or why they have gone. Is anybody else having this problem? Any solutions out there? Not sure if you can back up your channel settings (although the frequencies seem to change every now and then on some channels.

I've also got an issue around the EPG but I'll follow that up on the original thread - looks like MS are still not supporting it well so just wondering if people have anything better than epg collector.

Cheers guys.

I use GuideTool to edit and backup my channels then restore the channels on my other WMC's.

Thanks! I think this is exactly what I need. I finally found a download that worked. I'm trying to donate and activate the product but the link doesn't work. Any contact details for the dude that wrote it so I can let him know (and activate my version!)

Have a look here for the guide tool discussion thread there might be a link in there where you can contact him.
