    Frequency Finder - unable to complete the process as documented.

    I tried when Frequency Finder was first released, and again today (5.3.004), but still can't get passed the point which states

    "Disable the "official" ABM provider. You can re-enable it after the ABM file has been updated with the details you upload. Select the provider as normal and run ABM."

    I guess I don't understand what it means as I've tried what I think are the obvious things but without any success.

    terrestrial_finder.xml is created ok for the region "East Yorks & Lincs terrestrial".

    Is the ampersand character causing me grief, or is it just me???

    I can create a log file if needed - should that be ABM or a normal debug log?

    it creates a provider file for you. so there is the "official" Freeview in ABM as well as the newly created one. the official one does not work fully (that is why you are running ABM frequency finder), so it makes no sense running it.

    please attach the XML it creates.

    log is just the system log file

    Yes it is the ampersand character. Please provide debug log so we can tweak this.
    Which is your nearest mast?

    Nothing, but there are changes due soon, and I knew I would need help getting it working, which kind of defeats the object.

    Debug log will have to wait until this afternoon, recording the rugby at the moment.

    Belmont is the mast I use, with no interference (that I am aware of) from any other transmitters.

    OK, we will need to adapt code in ABM. Thanks for reporting

    This is probably enough...…

    Code:
    <  1074.676> [ABM-Providers][parseXML] XML parse error (/usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/SystemPlugins/AutoBouquetsMaker/scanner/../providers/terrestrial_finder.xml): not well-formed (invalid token): line 2, column 19
    Using 5.3.006

    Line 6 also has an ampersand. Changing them both to and, everything now works as expected, including the scan.

    This extra line in frequencyfinder.py at around line 562 seems to do the trick for ampersands.
    Looks ok as well if no ampersands are present.
    Having never written any python code, it needs checking out properly.

    Code:
    	def saveProviderFile(self):
    		customProviderList = []
    		self.strongestTransponder = self.transponders_unique[self.iterateUniqueTranspondersBySignalQuality()[-1]]
    		for tsidOnidKey in self.iterateUniqueTranspondersBySignalQuality()[::-1]: # iterate in reverse order and select the first system 0 transponder
    			transponder = self.transponders_unique[tsidOnidKey]
    			if transponder["system"] == 0:
    				self.strongestTransponder = transponder
    				break
    		self.strongestTransponder["network_name"] = self.strongestTransponder["network_name"].replace("&", "and")
    		network_name = self.strongestTransponder["network_name"]
    		customProviderList.append('<provider>\n')
    		customProviderList.append('\t<name>%s terrestrial</name>\n' % network_name)
    		customProviderList.append('\t<streamtype>dvbt</streamtype>\n')
    Simple1080 skin produces the following warnings in signalfinder…

    Code:
    <   972.036> [GUISkin] warning, skin is missing element background in <class 'Plugins.SystemPlugins.AutoBouquetsMaker.scanner.frequencyfinder.AutoBouquetsMaker_FrequencyFinder'>
    <   972.037> [GUISkin] warning, skin is missing element progress in <class 'Plugins.SystemPlugins.AutoBouquetsMaker.scanner.frequencyfinder.AutoBouquetsMaker_FrequencyFinder'>
    <   972.039> [Skin] processing screen SimpleSummary:

    Retune day today, this link is handy, with plenty of details at the end...…

    Code:
    http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/operations/700mhz_clearance/clearance_events_in_2019
    I've used a modified version of terrestrial_finder.xml (ampersands changed to and), and rescanned using it.

    The scan worked ok, but the bouquets haven't populated as I expected. (First half of "hd channels" are missing, and most of "all channels" are missing.)

    Belmont transmitter, East Yorks & Lincs terrestrial region.

    Using the default provider Freeview(UK)/Belmont does exactly the same.

    If I don't hide any ABM sections, then the HD and All Channels bouquets populate ok, but I only get 4 bouquets in total (all, hd, last scanned and favourites).
    No sign of the sections I've un-hidden.

    Might take a bit for the SI tables to update. I have made the changes you supplied.
