    You can add alternatives but it can be buggy. Press menu while in channel selection screen, there will be an option for it.

    Or just select the Terrestrial service. Simple is sometimes best. I have the service type icon enabled in channel selection, makes it a lot easier to distinguish between types of service. In ABM I always enable "Add provider name to bouquets".

    I cant get the alternatives to work. I go into the channel list (freesat) highlight the channel click menu click add alternatives, it then shows the channel highlighted in red, I click satellites select terrestrial find the channel and click OK this also highlights the channel in red thus you would think that they are paired. Press exit go back to the freesat channel list look at the channel view alternatives and the alternative to the freesat channel is the very same freesat channel.

    I am obviously doing something wrong but not sure what.

    The reason I want the alternatives rather than just selecting which ever channel is that the tuners are shared to the bedrooms and sometimes recordings are missed if tuners are in use
