Channels 101 and 102 disappeared from EPG

#1
I have my EPG set to display all channels. For some reason 101 and 102 are not listed in the Web IF any more (they were before). I've tried rebooting but it didn't help. They show up on the Humax's onscreen guide, so it's not a tuning problem.
Any idea how I can restore these channels?
I'm running firmware 3.13, web IF v1.4.4-1

I found one of the 10x channels missing like this the other day (not sure but probably BBC2 or 4). It did come back eventually.
I've noticed the BBC HD channels sometimes take forever to populate the EPG fully these days, so I assumed it's to do with that. (Eg, if the grid for a channel is empty at a certain point in time where the webif looks it assumes it's not there ... or something.)
I don't use the webif EPG a lot so I haven't noticed it since.

Thanks for your reply. I've since removed the tunefix and tunefix update plugins, and the channels are now back. I can't remember why I needed these plug-ins, so hopefully I won't miss them!

If the channels are on the Humax guide then it's nothing to do with either of those packages you mention. The WebIf losing channels is a common fault, and is because of bugs in the Humax software leaving out data in the EPG 'database' it writes to disk. This is read to generate the WebIf's view, so if the data ain't there, it can't be read or displayed.
The only proper cure is a reboot. There is a short delay (a few minutes) after doing so before the WebIf is brought up to date - it is not instant.

tunefix

Retunes can be complex, particularly if in an area served by multiple transmitters (see Things Every... click, section 2). Even if in a single transmitter area, there are usually a large number of services that you are not interested in to be deleted (if you leave them, they clutter the EPG and services list unnecessarily). tunefix is configurable with a page accessed via Settings, and once set up to your liking will automatically remove transmitters and services following a retune (requires a reboot after the retune).​

tunefix-update

Bypasses the need to retune the HD-FOX/HDR-FOX by making appropriate modifications to the tuning data when required (instead of starting from scratch like a retune). This avoids the annoyances of retunes. To be effective, tunefix-update needs to be at its current revision at all times, and (from version 1.0.35) can do this independent of the auto-update package. Use in combination with disable-dso for best benefit.​
