    Need help remapping Channel guide and actual channels

    I have been putting off some maintenance work for quite some time. My cable provider has removed some channels or changed their locations. So now have some holes in my guide where it will give the channel name and then all of the show boxes say "no details". Sometimes this channel has been removed and i need to remove it from my guide. I cannot figure out how to do that. Sometimes the show will work if I watch the channel and the show will be correct but the information in the guide says no details, but for some reason the information on the channel is in a new guide slot at the end like channel 135( I dont get channel 135 in normal cable) If you try to watch that channel 135 you get static. So how do you remap these channels?
    I also have other problems where CSPAN used to be on Channel 10 but it is now Channel 18 and FOX has taken the Channel 10 slot. how do I move the channels around so that they match up? I suspect that my guide is just terribly screwed up and I just need to clear it an let it build me another one. How do I do that? I use Schedules Direct if that helps. Thanks for your Replies.

    I just ran up against this myself not too long ago. ZSchedFix contains FixChannels.bat, a utility that re-orders your channels for you according to your Schedules Direct preferences. It clears out your available recordings & scheduled recordings lists, so you might want to export your recordings list & jot down your scheduled recordings to re-schedule them after you do this.

    Thanks for this that helped me out tremendously.
    A few notes here
    • if you use this bat file with a 1.2.x version of GBPVR that uses the PVRX2.EXE then you will need to do a scan and replace inside the batch file.
    • You will also like always want to make a complete copy of your gbpvr folder before starting this for safety. I am glad I did as on my channels I have to enter the frequencies manually for my channels to work so I used that copy to go back and get those.
    • Additionally if you have a lot of recurring recordings you will want to copy those off first this batch file destroys those settings.

    Thanks for the additional notes! I've been using the last version of GBPVR for... ever it seems, that it didn't occur to me that earlier versions would react differently.
