View Full Version : Removing channel number from channel name

2010-07-07, 06:29 PM
For example I have 306 HDNET mapped as channel 103. I would like the 306 not to show up. You were able to build a utility to strip the number for GBPVR - http://forums.gbpvr.com//showthread.php?34691
Are able to build the same utility again for NPVR?

you can alter them with sqlite3.exe and a batch file if they're somewhat consistent in naming...

sqlite3.exe -separator " " "npvr.db3" "update channel set name = substr(name,4,25) ;"
removes first 4 chars of 'name' in channel table[3 channel# + space]... keeping up to 25 chars after that..
just need to place sqlite3.exe in npvr data dir and run cmd..:)

careful tho as this cuts off first 4 chars of *all* channel names..
