VDR channel list does not match /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf
« on: July 02, 2008, 11:50:56 pm »
VDR channel list in vdradmin or watching TV does not match /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf despite importing using the web admin several times. The /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf file correctly matches what I upload.

In addition if I set a timer it never appears in the list in the web admin. I assume this is linked to the other issue.

Has anyone seen this?

Thanks,

Chris

Chris - assuming you created the channels.conf file using scan -o vdr < blah blah? Not just the channel definition file for your area? There are 2 files, one is the definition that you use to scan and create the actual channels.conf file.

Also, you have to reload the router after uploading for it to switch over...

I have done a reload to no avail. I tried importing the config again and this time I have a different set of channels! 9 channels are now showing, 2 of which are not in the config file above.

Any ideas? This is REALLY weird!

EDIT: Both /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf and /etc/vdr/channels.conf contain the correct channel list as uploaded. What I see in vdradmin bears no resemblance to these files or what I see in the TV application.

SO basically I think that vdradmin-am has an incorrect channel list. But where from and how to fix???!!!
