Hello Everyone, I am pleased to announce the release of a Channel Editor Plug-in for the Foxsat HDR Web Interface. It has taken almost four months of hard work and dedication by a number of people to bring this functionality to you. Huge thanks are due to Partridge, raydon and REPASSAC for their perseverance and patience throughout this process and for the countless hours they have put into testing each attempt at a solution along the way. Thanks to REPASSAC and Partridge for scripts and analysis of channel data changes during the housekeeping process. In addition, thanks are due to Max Largo from the German iCord forums for a key tip-off and pointer in the right direction which finally enabled us to achieve our goal. Full credits and instructions for use are in the Guide document which can be found in the documentation pages after installation. What's Different about this Release? There are two key differences between this and the previous version of the Channel Editor: This release is fully integrated into the Foxsat HDR Web interface making it platform independent (the old Windows-only executable has been retired) Channel edits are now applied as delta changes to the default channel configuration meaning that changes made during the housekeeping process will be retained (new/removed Freesat channels for example) Why Would I want to Use the Channel Editor? If you're new to the channel editor functionality then below are some of the primary reasons you might want to use it: Renaming Freesat or Non-Freesat Channels Marking default 'Visible' Freesat Channels as 'Hidden' e.g. to hide the regional BBC and ITV channels at Channel Numbers 9xx Marking default 'Hidden' Freesat Channels as 'Visible' e.g. to enable the recording of the BBC 'Red Button' streams Setting Non-Freesat channels to 'Freesat' to enable them to be included in the Freesat Channel list which avoids having to change the Foxsat into 'Non-Freesat Mode' and also facilitates setting of timed programme recordings for non-Freesat channels and channels from other satellites Pre-requisites You will need to be running the custom firmware (http://www.avforums.com/forums/free...r-bundle-foxsat-hdr-release-4-0-part-1-a.html) version 4.04 or later You will need to be running Web Interface 2.61 or higher Instructions for Use Full instructions are contained within the Guide which will be available in the documentation pages of the Web Interface after you install this package. NOTE that because of the different mechanism used for applying channel edits ALL users will need to configure changes from scratch after install - including those who have been using the previous version of the Channel Editor up to now. Instructions for Download Download in the usual way: Visit the "Package Management" page Click on "Update package list form Internet" button Select Upgrades tab Install the Channel Editor package (note that this will also install the sysclock package which is a required dependency) I hope you find this updated functionality useful. My regards to everyone on the forum. Adrian.
