Description

I have one dvb-s2 single tuner and three dvb-c sat>ip tuners.

So I also have some channels twice in the list because they are available over dvb-s2 and dvb-c.

So I cannot decide which Channel is the right one.

If it doesn't matter which channel I choose because I've already selected a channel tag to identify the correct service then only unique channelnames should be displayed.

History

#1 Updated by Jaroslav Kysela 9 months ago

  • Subject changed from webui: edit autorec - show service in channellist to webui: edit autorec - show channel number in channel list
  • Target version set to 4.4

I belive that we should show the channel number instead the service name for this purpose.

Service would be better because maybe users did not set channel numbers.
In my case I set the same channel numbers for dvb-c and dvb-s2 - so service would be better to identify a channel. ;-)

Why don't you edit the channel name then? I added the possibility to add channel number and the source identificator (like DVB-T) to the channel names - see the general config.

Showing the Source sounds good.

Can you describe how to do this?

Perfect - now I can select the correct channel.
Thank you

Small issue (was maybe also before).

It seems that the channellist while editing an autorec is ordered alphabetically.
So the order by displayed chennel numbers looks strange (1,10,11,...,2,20,21,...,3,30,...)
Maybe ot wouob be better to sort the list by chsnnel number, name and source (in this order).
