G-16/3848, please tell me what I'm doing wrong
I'm sure I'm doing something stupid here, hoping someone recognizes my mistake and can help me. I've got an OpenBox S10, dish pointed at G-16 (99W). I rescanned transponder 3848 and it scans 6 channels. When I exit the menu I only see 4 of the 6 channels. According to lyngsat, I'm missing 769 (NBC Virgin Islands) and 2049 (Fox Aguadilla). I double-checked to make sure I wasn't looking at a favorites list or anything like that. I'm in the "All" channel list.
I figured maybe I could manually add the channels, so I dumped TP_PROG.dbs to a thumb drive, went to my computer, renamed, etc, and opened in AliEditor. Here's where it got strange. The 2 "missing" channels ARE listed properly in AliEditor. I don't know if there's some flag on the channels that my receiver doesn't like... or if there's something wrong with my receiver, or what in the world is wrong.
The only difference I noticed is that these two channels are listed with the H264 flag set as H264, whereas the other 4 channels are set as MPEG2. However, I do have other channels in my channel list with H264 flag set and they seem to work fine. Any ideas, or questions? Sorry if I haven't provided enough information.
