Channel Detection not showing all channels when finihsedd

Post by engene7 »

While performing a 'Channel Detection' I can see some 130 channels, with the different options for the likes of BBC1 shown.
For example:

1 BBC ONE East E
1 BBC ONE Lon

But, when finished I can only see 80 channels, and only one option for the likes of BBC1.
How can I see all the channels found?
We are on the border of three TV transmission areas, and we can see the likes of BBC1 East England, BBC1 London, etc.
(We can on our normal TVs for example.)

For anything dependent on the scan, the devices only allow one of each virtual channel number... it chooses first by resolution, then by signal quality. They have stated that they eventually hope to allow some form of selection by region but such would still be more automatic in nature and still only allow one of any given virtual channel number.

If you want multiples of the same virtual channel number, you will need to use software not dependent on the modern method of tuning and the scan.
