Just updated Freeview.dat and Freeview(Scotland) .dat

This is primarily for Scottish viewers (to cope with BBC FOUR shifting from LCN 82 to 6Cool but both files contain updated records for Together TV (8Cool and PBS America (91)

I've just updated Topmanager (still on XP!!) and then took the opportunity to update the offered Freeview.dat and FvTxData.tsv in the expectation that I wouldn't get the error message re Freeview.dat, but to no avail, Channel Organiser still complains as well as showing a couple of mux numbers (no descriptions alongside)

FvDataErrors.txt shows:

Code:
// Errors in 'Freeview.dat' detected by Channel Organiser B2.1 on 10/1/2020 at 14:50
// These will cause problems with status display, config files, and/or future LCN changes

LCN 31 appears to have moved to LCN 796 - the entry for the former should be changed
      SvcId for line starting: LCN=33 should be changed to 8362
LCN 49 appears to have moved to LCN 791 - the entry for the former should be changed
LCN 50 name should be changed from 'Sony Movies Christmas' to 'Sony Movies Classic'
LCN 54 appears to have moved to LCN 31 - the entry for the former should be changed
LCN 55 appears to have moved to LCN 54 - the entry for the former should be changed
LCN 65 appears to have moved to LCN 794 - the entry for the former should be changed
Mux name is apparently wrong for LCN 57 - it should be COM5
Mux name is apparently wrong for LCN 49 - it should be COM4
Mux name is apparently wrong for LCN 212 - it should be COM4
No 'Freeview.dat' entry found for 'TJC' on LCN 49
No 'Freeview.dat' entry found for 'Smithsonian Channel' on LCN 57
No 'Freeview.dat' entry found for 'Yaaas!' on LCN 212

// Based of version of 'Freeview.dat' last updated at 15:30 on 27/11/2019


I'm tuned solely to Waltham MUXs.

I had some similar issues last year that you helped out with but can't put my hands on it, but it may have been trying to updated the two data files manualy and not through TopManager.[/code]

Thee was a load of movements on Tuesday which is why the Freeview.dat is out of date I guess.

@anthony2l

Thanks for your post showing errors in Freeview.dat - I have just uploaded updated versions of Freeview.dat and the Scotland variant.

Please note that these files are invariably out of date and, as it takes me getting on for 2 hours to update them, I really only intend to do this when there are significant changes e.g. to the main channels.

Errors in the Freeview.dat file typically mean that it could do with editing rather than it being a showstopper.
In general :-
1) Entries above (or moved above) 750 can be ignored (this is just a temporary parking space for a old channel variant before it ceases broadcasting)
2) A change of name can typically be ignored (the toppy will use the new name)
3) "Mux name is apparently wrong" can be ignored
4) "No entry found for" can be ignored (it just won't be subject to filtering e.g. excluding Shopping)
5) "LCN appears to have been moved" can be ignored if you are using MyStuff (CO rewrites the EPG files to reflect the change - and these get refreshed anyway after about 20 mins). When MS is not used, they might be necessary as CO has to adjust any timers relating to the moved LCNs.
6) Entries relating to channels you intend to delete can be ignored

So in this case, the messages could probably all be ignored

TopManager uses a different mechanism from CO and generally doesn't care about occasional wrong fields in Freeview.dat

Cheers
Geoff
