    hiya - so I got my box up and working, thanks to some very helpful people and all is working just peachy-doody...
    EXCEPT...
    I now have about a hundred million channels, spread through a buncha "favourites"...
    is there a fairly simple way to - say - move the thirty or so channels that we actually watch into one place... one "favourites" to make it simple to just watch what we want? After all, not everyone has a NEED to view Tibettan cat wrestling or Vampire cooking shows.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    thanx in advance

    i know nothing about the openbox.
    i have a dreambox, i use a program called dreamboxedit, with that i can edit a channel list (ie: something like your 30 channels) and ftp it to the box, you may be able to use that program or something sililar.

    argghhhhhh...
    I had it all set up and working ALMOST perfectly, except that my sky sports channel commercials were all in the Irish feed.
    I thought - "well, I did it once, I can do it again, properly, this time..."

    I saved my Prog.dbs to a stick (I'm not a COMPLETE idiot...), wiped out all the channels and rescanned the sky satellite...
    and got all the channels... eazypeazy...
    When I first set up the box, I used someone else's dbs which had about a million "favourite sections" and I finally figured out how to move them around, empty some and save others etc...
    but now, with this full scan I only have one "favourite" section..


    so, please, a simple instruction.
    1. How do I add more "favourites sections"?
    2. How to I specify which channels go in which favourites?

    and I promise that i will save the instructions into my openboxstuff folder.

    and, as always, thanks for the help.
    tony
