    Delete providers.cach

    Can we delete providers.cache when entering providers?

    I ask when we setup ABM, providers and we disable a tuner and run ABM this causes an error and the provider cant be disabled within ABM as the tuner isn't configured.

    Example on my Uno4k with a cable and a sundtek sat tuner enabled I can set both Sky UK and Virgin UK in ABM providers but should my sat tuner be having issues or if I disable the tuner in tuner setup on ABM scan I receive no "NIMs found for sky uk".

    This is because Sky UK is enabled in providers but I cant disable it as ABM wont show it in ABM providers if my tuner is no longer configured.

    The next test I did was delete providers.cache go in to ABM providers then pressed green to save and was able to scan ABM.

    I was thinking if it would be possible to delete the providers cache every time we enter ABM providers this would hopefully solve issues with users that may have configured a provider in the past but then disabled the tuner, I know we can go into tuner config and re enable the tuner then disable the provider but that wouldn't be possible if the tuner was faulty and no longer configurable.

    as I mentioned to you before, merely entering and saving removes no longer applicable providers.

    there is no need to enable/disable tuners.

    The providers cache was added to remove delay. We won't be removing it. I hope you agree that entering a menu and saving is not too much trouble for those who are using backups from other people or have removed a tuner.

    It's a very good point raised. This can happen often if your image was made with a tuner enabled but become unavailable. Can leave you in a crappy situation that can take a huge effort!

    You set your tuners at First Install Wizard. ABM comes unconfigured.

    Is it really that hard to press the green button?

    It's not that. When your flashing loads of boxes for clients you don't go through the wizard you have a backup image. Even if there was an option in tuner settings to purge whatever it is so I can carry on without having to setup up again from scratch coz customer got wrong backup image with unavailable tuner.

    Is it really hard to open ABM, and press Green/OK?





    Anyway, we are not going to change it. Otherwise the normal people have to wait for 30 odd seconds for ABM to re-validate the provider options every time they access it. Our image and support is free. We have no clients. We do this for a hobby and enjoy helping people.

    I don't think there is anything else to discuss.
