Description

Currently it is possible to assign the same number for different channels.
In my opinion all following channels should automatically increased after a number was used again.
e.g. A1, B2, C3, D4

If I assign number 2 to channel D B should get number 3 and C number 4.

Maybe a client-up function like: update-numbers-for-selected-channels would also help.

In the above example the current state would be
A1 B2 D2 C3

Now I want to select this four channels and start the cleanup-function - the start-number should be provided by user.
In my case I would use 1 as start number and would expect
A1 B2 D3 C4

The numbers for B and D should be choosen from the position shown in ui or at least by ordering the channel-name.

Currently the number-operation "assign numbers" uses a wired logic to get the start-number.
Sometimes it starts with 1 sometimes with 21 - I have no idea how this works. :-)

The start value is read from the first selected row. A bit unintuitive, indeed...

Is this ticket blocking the release of v4.2?

Maybe it can be moved to target v4.4 and you can release in the meantime v4.2?
I´m waiting for v4.2 for weeks now.......... realy need the features in v4.2.

As dpkg is not working on my synology DS414 i´m not able to compile sources on my own :(

"All good things come to those who wait", If you really want features from 4.2 why not use current development code 4.1.xxxx (this is what will be 4.2). There are already pre-built packages available for syno NASs here: http://syno.dierkse.nl/ (you want tvheadend-testing).

I´m afraid of using testing builds because my tvh need to be stable. Otherwise my wife is going to kill me :)
So yes, i have to wait........
