Sorting the Channel List

You can alter the order of the channels, categories or roots. This can be easily done by drag and drop: Click the object you want to move, drag it to some other place and drop it there. Only the video/audio folders are not movable.

If you want to move a channel to another category or root, simply grab it with the mouse, and let it drop on the folder icon. If a channel is shifted to another root in this way, and its category does not yet exist there, it will be created. Category folders may also be moved to other roots.

If you prefer using the keyboard, you may move the entries as follows:

  • The [Shift]+[¸] and [Shift]+[¶] key moves the selected channel or category one position up or down.

  • The [Shift]+[Pos1] and [Shift]+[End] key move the selected object to the top or bottom position within its parent folder.

  • The [Del] key deletes the selected channel or folder after a warning query was raised. To improve the DVBViewer speed, it is recommended to remove all unused satellite folders (roots).

Please note: Accidentaly removed entries cannot be restored - there is no undo function. Therefore it is recommendable to create a backup copy of the file channels.dat. It is located in the DVBViewer folder and contains the entire channel list.

Furthermore you may rename roots, categories and channels. For this purpose click the object's name twice slowly -no ordinary double-click! After that, the name field turns into an input line, where the name can be edited in the usual way.

Multilingual Channels

Several broadcasters are transmitting two or more audio channels, in order to provide two or more languages, e.g. Motors TV (English/French). Pro7 uses a second audio channel for AC3 Surround sound. Which audio channel is played back by DVBViewer, depends on the Audio PID displayed on the Edit tabsheet.

In order to enable an audio channel switching, the channel must be added in the channel list several times with different Audio PIDs. Each time a new TV channel is tuned in, the DVBViewer checks automatically if the channel is represented with more than one available Audio PID in the list. If it is, you will find an Audio entry in the Settings Menu. It activates a submenu, where you may select the different audio channels.

The menu entries in the picture on the right can be achieved as follows:

  • Select Motors TV in the England category. Go to the Edit tabsheet, rename the channel to Motors TV English and click on Update.

  • Edit the channel again. Change the name now to Motors TV Francais, enter 192 as Audio PID and click Add.
