Deleting channels completely

This is only a workaround for the shortcomings in the VBox interface. Hopefully VBox will be able to add this option soon. 1. Open the Manage Files page in the VBox interface 2. Export the file ChannelList.xml.db to a PC. Make a copy of this in case your changes go wrong! 3. Download and run DB Brow...

Re: Web livetv guide loading

Yes, seen that happen lots, both on a PC browser (Firefox on Linux) and in the Android grey app. Like you though, I never seem to be able to predict when it will play up - seems to be fine at the moment. I've given up in the grey app on my phone as it's so unreliable. The pink one seems to work more...

Re: What Do you watch your Vbox on.

Pi3 with OSMC (a Kodi distro) works pretty well with recordings on NAS box. Kodi on Ubuntu pretty good too. MythTV on Ubuntu pretty good. Scheduling is much better than Vbox's but getting the EPG working is a right pain. Native Android apps seem to keep crashing but can be OK. Would love to be able ...

Re: Channel Changes - UK Freeview (BBC4 HD and others)

Hi, I must apologise. It would seem that this is much less of a problem than I first thought. When these 2 channels moved I tried to simply scan just the new frequency, C56, rather than everything. As a result I got my 2 new channels (and some I didn't want) but they were displayed alongside the now...

Re: Channel Changes - UK Freeview (BBC4 HD and others)

The evening recording is available at the Dropbox link now, taken at 1908, a few minutes after the channels swapped over. I've had a quick look at the file in VLC and it does now contain a stream for BBC 4 HD, even though I have not rescanned the RF frequency in the Vbox interface. VLC & Kodi are un...
