Freesat channel list - Panasonic / LG / Samsung

No Fun

Hi Guys,

I have a LG EG960V, it's a great TV and has loads, however it's missing Freesat and picks up far too many channels when searched for and in the wrong order.

Would anyone with an Panasonic / Samsung / LG TV with Freesat be able to export their channel list so I can import it onto my TV (in the correct order and correct list of channels.

I understand Freesat needs a postcode, I'm in London (can a search be carried out on my London postcode to return the correct regional channels?)

Postcode W12 7GF will sort the channels correctly.

All I need is a channel export from a Freesat TV on the above regional sort for the postcode above.

I can then import this into my TV and sort the channels without going through 800+ channels.

Please can the file be uploaded to We transfer / Box / whatever other method.

How to export:
(Panasonic)


  • Plug a USB Stick into one of the ports of your TV
  • Select the menu option "Setup / Other Settings / Channel List Transfer" (or similar)

Samsung:
Starting with the C-series you can use the Program menu of your TV and select the option "Transfer channel list".

When asked for the PIN, enter 0000

When you select to Export the file, it will always be written to a fixed file name that matches your model. If it already exists, it will be overwritten without asking.

For info. I'll be using ChanSort to use the export as a reference file and then it'll match with my unsorted list.

Cheers guys! Shame LG won't enable the TV for Freesat.

As a Freesat (receiver) owner, it appears that you are choosing Astra 28 rather than Freesat in your tuning menu. Astra will return significantly more channels than Freesat. This is assuming that your television actually has an integral Freesat EPG.

Regardless, you reasoning for 'importing' and then utilising data to show the correct Freesat channel ordering will not work.

It's not a FreeSat TV but using a FreeSat ordered list this can be imported in. I did this prior with my old FreeSat TV, but I no longer have it and did not save a copy of the channel list. I did a firmware update and a retune and lost my order.

Just need a FreeSat export list to set all the channels in one go.

ChanSort can use a csv or txt channel file as the reference. Just Google and download one or find one of the web sites listing Freesat channels and make your own file.
