@prprI have, however, just spotted something that may be of interest. When I connected to webif earlier I got the message about tunefix-update being upgraded and when I look in package management it is indeed at Vers 1.0.64. However, the epg on the box shows none of the changes to have been applied - there's no Smithsonian, Pick+1 is still 97, PBS is still 94 etc.
Oh yeah. My tunefix is showing the latest version 1.0.65 but the 1.0.64 changes haven't happened?
 
Not sure what's happening there.
I have 1.0.65 applied and it has not undone the 1.0.64 changes - which I got via a manual retune from the Blackhill transmitter.
One for prpr, I think. Are you also on Blackhill?

Is there a question there?
Did 1.0.64 actually get installed? Check the activity.log file. Have you rebooted? Does /mod/boot/tunefix-update.conf exist and if so, what is in it?

It didn't quite make it into ascii, but it is in unicode,
BTW
I couldn't bring myself to use it's name as I'm not keen on Americanisms

Oh! Is it?
Sorry prpr. I actually just re-scanned the box to just make sure it was up-to-date and no other changes had been missed.

If weird things happen again can you just clarify what files I should look at i.e. what logs tunefix has been updated and what logs the output from the tunefix update when it is run?

LOL! You've quoted the wrong post - had me confused for a while! :confused_:

The installed state is available via WebIF >> Package Management >> Installed. Otherwise, see previous advice!

With 1.0.70, repeatably (3 machines, HD, HDR) after autoupdate and reboot I'm losing the Smithsonian Channel (LCN 99, COM7, Ch55 Crystal Palace).

How will I get by without Nesbit's NI whinge, the nice blonde girl who can only afford to buy her summer things from Littlewoods, not to mention the strict home gym cycling girl? Apparently there are programmes as well.

In the package's postinst, tunefix-update.conf is being set with these lines:
Code:
RENAME|Sony Crime Channel +1|movies4men+1
MOVE|29|99|E4+1
...
MOVE|99|28|E4+1
MOVE|60|99|movies4men+1
...
MOVE|99|48|movies4men+1
...
The fact that SC is LCN 99 appears to be related: is 99 being used as a scratch LCN in the above? Would 999 work instead?

Moving another service to LCN 99 effectively deletes whatever was on 99 before. If you will use any particular LCN as a temporary store, it needs to be chosen as a number that will never have something you want on it (or that "something" needs moving somewhere else first).

QVC would make an effective scratchpad (unless, of course, you actually want QVC).

I'm sure those floosies of yours appear on other channels too...

PS: this is the wrong thread. You should have posted this on the tunefix thread (which is not the same as tunefix-update).

You're confirming my hypothesis about the use of a scratch LCN 99, but, no, it is a tunefix-update issue. The tunefix commands that I quoted come directly from the tunefix-update-1.0.70 package. I think @prpr may be in an area where LCN 99 isn't in the broadcast roster. SC moved to LCN 99 a month or two ago.
