    Favourite List

    Hi All,

    Iíve been using the ĎFavourite Listí method for some time now and I used a csv file to create it that I think abu baniaz posted but the file I am using I believe is now out of date as some channels have moved and others added.

    Would anyone have the latest file I could use?

    Thanks - Jason

    Favourite List

    If you are using favourites.xml file, amend it with changes you need.

    Can you upload the files you are using at the moment?

    Yes I am using the favourites.xml file solution and I have upload my version of the working file of which I do use the 'XML tool' tab to make any adjustments but was wondering if there are any newer versions of the channels listed on the 'sat_282_sky_uk' tab

    The numbers are different based on region and whether you use SD or HD numbering.

    To update your file, copy the details from the csv file and paste into the tab of the excel file. Paste on C1. Columns A and B are formulas so don't paste on those.

    Sorry, my dish is not connected so cannot do it for you. If you get stuck, upload the csv file too.

    No problem at all, happy to update my own file as I am all ok with the formulas and workings of the file, just needed the latest list as you mention from columns C-N

    Thanks

    Use one of the mix files in link below, it will generate the csv file for you. I recommend you do not use a custom region

    I am hoping to use ABM to do something similar to above, but combining multiple sources e.g. Freesat, DTT and channels from 19E and 13E. Is the method outlined above the way to go, or would CustomMix be better?

    Also, I would like that my Favourites would start with Channel 1 - BBC1 HD, Channel 2 - BBC 2 HD etc instead of 101, 102 etc. . If using the favourites.xml approach, could this be achieved by changing the 'target =' values?

    <insert provider="sat_282_sky_uk" source="115" target="001"/><!-- BBC One HD -->
    <insert provider="sat_282_sky_uk" source="802" target="002"/><!-- BBC Two HD -->

    Thanks in advance!

    No idea to be honest as I only use 1 feed source.

    I think that can be done, try it and see, I also Hide all the other bouquets so that only my Favourite List and bouquets are present

    You can put any channels from any ABM provider in any order you want.

    Most providers allow you to run them without creating the bouquets by deselecting the create x bouquets options. You won't have to delete bouquets then.

    Thanks for reply. I have it sort of working now. This is part of my favourites.xml file:


    <favourites>
    <name>Favourites</name>
    <sections>
    <section number="1">Entertainment</section>
    </sections>
    <inserts>
    <insert provider="terrestrial_ie_saorview_PSB1" source="1" target="1"></insert> <!-- rte1 hd -->
    <insert provider="terrestrial_ie_saorview_PSB1" source="2" target="2"></insert> <!-- rte2 hd -->
    <insert provider="terrestrial_ie_saorview_PSB1" source="3" target="3"></insert> <!-- tv3 -->
    <insert provider="terrestrial_ie_saorview_PSB1" source="4" target="4"></insert> <!-- tg4 -->
    <insert provider="terrestrial_ie_saorview_PSB1" source="21" target="5"></insert> <!-- rtenewsnow -->
    <insert provider="sat_282_freesat" source="106" target="6"></insert> <!-- bbc1 hd -->
    <insert provider="sat_282_freesat" source="102" target="7"></insert> <!-- bbc2 hd -->
    <insert provider="sat_282_freesat" source="107" target="8"></insert> <!-- bbc4 hd -->
    <insert provider="sat_282_sky_uk" source="138" target="9"></insert> <!-- channel 4hd-->
    <insert provider="sat_282_freesat" source="122" target="10"></insert> <!-- e4 -->

    snip!

    </inserts>
    <bouquets>
    <main>1</main> <!-- 0 or 1 -->
    <sections>0</sections> <!-- 0 or 1 -->
    </bouquets>
    </favourites>



    I would like to remove all Section breaks, but if I attempt that by deleting the line '<section number="1">Entertainment</section>' , then the box crashes as it attempts to create the bouquet. The output from the crash log reads as:

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    Favourite List

    You are not explaining yourself properly. How can you delete all the section breaks in your favourite bouquets created by ABM when you only have one section?

    Even if you had more than one section, it is illogical to add something and remove it as well. You might as well as not add it in the first place.

    Or are you referring to the sections in the provider bouquets?

    It would be better for you to attach your XML file as well as your debug log. Attach the example files from the custom folder too

    You don't have to keep dragging and dropping every time there is a change of transponder.
