Do a regular back-up of your database,then the next time you update,just
import the old database and you will be good to go...Just yesterday I
had a problem where my HD-PVR got un-plugged..This caused the tuner
assignments to change..Five minutes to restore the DB and I was back in
business..Thanks to Mike Dean..
I will admit the new scanner is a handful,especially if you don't know
what it's asking for when the scan is done,but it does work.. I just
choose ignore and continue.. When it's done all my channels are in the DB...
