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...

Channel Display and Options on Manage Channels screen

Hi, Since recent channel lineup changes in UK Freeview I am now finding the Manage Channels and Add Channels screens very limited. Please can we have: An extra column in the list (maybe under Advanced) to show the RF frequency for each TV channel in the list. This way I can quickly see which RF freq...

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

I've just played back the TS file in VLC and it's showing a completely different channel to either of the ones that I'm having trouble with.

Have I made a mistake? The filename includes the frequency and that is correct for C56.

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

Hi, Yes, sorry, I have just looked back at my notes from before and these 2 TV channels were both on C32. I try to keep my channel list as short as possible and only scan the frequencies that I need so when Freeview changed a few days ago I just scanned the frequencies that I had previously used and...
