I have pansat 2700a I would like to backup and edit my current list. Then move them to a spread sheet or somthing for safe keeping.

yep you should be able to upload the channels from the reciever directly into CM, edit them and download them back. i did it with my pansat 1500. Works really slick :)

it might...some receivers work directly with it. Others you have to upload your channels via the receivers "loader", then open it with CM

My Coolsat I have to use the Coolsat Loader to upload it to my computer, then open it in CM. The Fortec may do that too. i'll have to check

I wondered what the serial cable like connection on the back of my receiver was for.

That would be real slick. Well not that big of deal for me, with only 1 sat. But, 97w would have TONS!

G10 can be a bugger too especially if you label them like I use to

As an example
KWWF 22 RTN
WMQF 19 FOX

etc

Channel Master has an update for the loader. I think it's like May 9. The Fortec Ultra or Lifetime is in it, but I don't know if they are new or were already there. There are several new ones.

CM works with the Lifetime Classic NA if you use Fortec's downloader to get the channels from the receiver and then import the cdf file into CM. You export the CM to a Fortec cdf file and use that and the Fortec downloader to update the receiver.

CM has an entry for directly linking to Fortec receivers but I couldn't get it to work that way. It may be that my serial port isn't a "real" one, it's a USB adapter.

I just tried doing it directly from CM to the FOrtec and no go (I use a serial port)

but Fortec has their own channel editor built in if you use that (but CM works much better) :)
