This button, when pressed instructs the TV Service to restart the EPG Grabbing function for all channels defined in TV Channels/TV EPG Grabber section. This does not trigger an xml import and will most likely delete all EPG information currently stored.

 


Test or record a channel

 


Select a channel

First, select the group of the channel you want to test from the dropdown list Group. This will populate the dropdown list Channel with all channels from this group. When you select a channel you can start timeshifting or recording on this channel.

  • Tuner locked: Yes/No
  • Channel: Shows a detailled description of the current channel
  • Signal level:
  • Signal quality:

If the channel cannot be tuned successfully, it may be for one of the following reasons (the error will be displayed on the screen):

No signal detected: This means that either the signal is too weak to receive at your location, or the transmitter is no longer broadcasting a MUX on the frequency that you are trying to receive.

No Pmt detected: This means that the tuner is receiving the MUX successfully, but the MUX  does not contain the channel that you are trying to receive.  The channel may have moved to a different MUX, or the channel may no longer exist.

No Video/Audio detected: This means that the tuner is receiving the MUX successfully, and the MUX does contain the channel that you are trying to receive, but the channel is not currently broadcasting any content.  This occurs when a channel is a part-time channel (that is, the channel does not broadcast content for all 24 hours each day).

Record

Same as above (Start/Stop Timeshifting) with the difference that the stream is also saved as a recording (can only be enabled once a timeshift buffer is started).
