    Settings editor

    Hello, I am a newby - I bought this from World-of-Satellite yesterday.

    and have spent hrs on setup and have got it to see the dual LNB (19.2 & Hotbird). I have done a scan and have a jumbles mess of channels. So...

    1) Is there an editor that will work with this box (Amiko Viper) - I tried Dreambox editor - FTA connection OK Password OK - then error messages

    2) is there a way to scan FTA channels only ? - I have seen no mention of FTA in any menu.

    Da\/e...

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Is there a trick I am missing - It puts most of the Encrypted channels near the top.

    Are there settings I can download ? All FTA German channels together - French together - Polish together etc. ?

    With ABM yes - assuming you are in expert mode, you can select providers, sequence and block
    SO you can accept FTA only and order

    Dreamset, Dresmboxedit, Echannelizer will allow you to create your bouquet/s in the order you want. You need to investigate the error you are getting.

    There is an FTA option during scanning within Enigma2. You need to be in the appropriate scanning method.

    Best you read the OpenViX manual. It is a few years old, but basics are still valid.

    Hello,

    I have now found the FTA option in the Providers options (Earlier attempts did not see "Provider options" as not all Providers have options).

    Regarding the error - I see this......

    Dreambox response: Login successful.
    ** Retrieving file list of "/var/tuxbox/config/enigma/" **
    Starting FTP transfer
    Transfer complete
    ** Retrieving file list of "/var/tuxbox/config/enigma/" **
    Starting FTP transfer
    Transfer complete
    Neither a "services" nor a "lamedb" file was found in directory "%" on the Dreambox. /var/tuxbox/config/enigma/
    Check the dream path settings on the option panel to point to the correct Dreambox directories and try again.
    Disconnecting.
    Disconnected.

    Update - Echannelizer now working. Dreamboxedit still has the same error.

    BTW the problem with Echannelizer was .... You setup the conection - Name & IP address etc but it doesnot use the settings you just made until you select the device (name) from a dropdown > top right .

    I find that the Autoboquetmaker still includes Encrypted channels like RTL HD (possibly unencrypted sometimes). Therefore I am going to have to sort the channels myself.

    I could upload my settings if that would be of use to anyone.

    Da\/e..

    I think you have configured DBEdit to use Enigma instead of Enigma2.

    If you are going to edit bouquets, do not edit those created by ABM. Make your own. Otherwise ABM will overwrite them next time it runs.

    I have looked but can't find a selection for Enigma or Enigma2

    I have not configured any file paths in the setup
    The top one there currently says ....../var/tuxbox/config/enigma/


    German channels - you can select FTA only
    I did it still added RTL HD though

    If you are going to edit bouquets, do not edit those created by ABM. Make your own. Otherwise ABM will overwrite them next time it runs.
    I was doing as it happens. I did switch off updates - does this not stop overwrite ?

    This is how my DB edit is configured. Maybe you can show your one?

    Good news - I set the Dreambox options to the same as yours and It works.

    Now I can edit - Is there a good location where ready made listings can be downloaded (for 19.2 & Hotbird) ?
