I want to cleanup my bouquets and therefore I deleted all of themn.
Except that from the screenshot - they will be only set to disabled if I try to delete them.

Has someone an idea how to remove the bouquets?

Btw. I've replaced my DVB-S2 tuner with an SAT-IP DVB-C tuner.

I noticed this a long time ago. When I looked at the config files, I found a "shield" setting was set to "true" for all those pre-configured bouquets. And it is used here: [[]] Since I am not really using bouquets, I never bothered trying to remove them. I did not see anywhere in the interface to change the "shield" setting, maybe I did not look hard enough???

I am not sure of the best way to delete them, possibly just remove the corresponding files in /home/hts/.hts/tvheadend/bouquet/ and restart tvheadend or maybe better to cd to the bouguet directory and run:

sed -i '/shield/ s/true/false/' *

Then restart tvheadend and delete them.

Sorry, I am doing some recordings now and I cannot test to be sure...

So it seems tvheadend really, really wants these bouquets. :)
I tried setting shield to false. removing the shield option and even deleting the associated files - and tvheadend just recreates them on startup. Finally I found the source in data/conf/fastscan. If you clear that file and delete the associated bouquet files, they will be gone.
