I have dreamboxEdit which seems to do the same thing. Still, I'm not setup the way I would like. By the way, I'm not able to delete encrypted channels from 101. They shouldn't have been scanned in anyway since I was scanning for free services. Anyway, I delete them, upload the changes but they keep coming back.You can accomplish this easily in Dreamset by making Favorites lists.
It seems to happen on only 1 sat - 101W, But, background scanning was enabled. Turned it off and we'll see what happens.Perhaps background scanning is enabled in the tuner configuration service scan menu?
As long as you don't rescan, the names should not change. At least they haven't in my experience. However, I don't use that image.I edited my scanned services to give more meaningful names to the ones that just show a freq/sid using dreamboxEdit and uploaded to the os mio. For a short time, these service name changes were OK and then reverted to freq/sid. How do I make this a permanent change? I'm using the "The North American Project" version of the SatDreamGr image.
Someone mentioned background scanning but I don't see anything like that in the settings.
No, he's right, they WILL change by themselves, I've seen it happen while I was watching. You have to DISABLE "background scanning". It looks for changes, and converts back. I've posted this before.
Menu/Setup/System/Customize and it was turned OFF by default. I have now turned it ON (disable), and hit the green button to SAVE.
It's all fine as long as the channels are properly named by the uplinker, unfortunately many of them are NOT. Those are the ones that can change back to the default names.
