    not all channels available in maual recording

    I have had this problem for a while and cannot see what is causing it. I have just upgraded to the new version from a fairly old one. The improvements are very obvious but this issue carries over suggesting it is a setup issue.

    I have checked my channel mappings and the channel is there, I can record it when I use the EPG. I only use manual recording when my epg is not updated and there is no program information. Unfortunately the channel I need is not available in the list.

    I think the issue might be related to the EPG. A while ago I changed the epg I use and as a result I rescanned and remapped the channels. During this process I recall ending up with the new channels and the old channels, basically all channels were duplicated in my scanned and mapping lists. Some how I removed the duplicates but I am not sure how. I am not even sure I removed the channels scanned from the old epg or the new one.

    Not sure if I have just got some kind of confused database of channels. Anyone have a similar problem and find the answer I would appreciate the help.

    thanks

    Given this past problem, the best solution might be exporting your recordings, deleting the gbpvr.db3 database, start the config app and recreating your capture source, then re-importing the recordings. This will get rid of any old channels hanging around etc.
