I guess Dennis's problem here is that he only has a single CAM and is switching the cards over manually when he needs to? Actually scrub that, I thought that was what his problem was, but based on the last email I think this is not the only problem. However, it's probably a somewhat common situation anyway, and perhaps worth bearing in mind (For example with Sky and the like do you sometimes get a temporary card just for certain channels and big events, or is it all done with the same card in some clever way?)
Anyway, great to hear that it now works ok with radio channels. I think I might now import my full channel list instead of just the main 6. Now that would be a lot easier if I could just import it from channels.conf file... Oh yes, that was my job... Hmm, OK better find the time to do something about it...
