I got a nag message on Film 4 LCN 15 today.

After a retune it seems that Film 4 is staying on LCN 15 and Film 4 + 1 is putting a reappearance in on LCN 45 on 27th August.

To confuse matters Film 4 is also now on LCN 491 as a temporary placeholder. I don't claim to understand who is now doing what, on which mux. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can enlighten me.

There's also something about a Travel Channel on LCN 42 in case that's of interest to anyone.

Keep Up. Very Happy http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=258531#258531

I hope to be adding the Travel programme 'picks' to the Drama & Movie Mix postings soon.

Cool

Sorry if I posted in the wrong place. I don't always follow 23 page threads especially when the title suggests they're about a problem I don't have.

I don't think I'll be on the edge of my seat waiting for the Travel Programme from what I read.

I initially scanned with Channel Organiser but it didn't like the two Film 4s at the same time. I wasn't sure which one to delete. Why are they doing it this way? It seems strange to me.

I do look at your picks from time to time. Mostly for the films. I hadn't heard anything about the reshuffle before I saw the nag message.

This latest one has been rather a low profile job, more to do with claiming LCN numbers I suspect. On 27th there will be another reshuffle as Film4 +1 comes online with programme content and the confusion should go once the dust has settled.
PS have just uploaded the travel picks here http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=254827#254827

So that there is continuity of service.

At the moment it's broadcasting on both, with a nag message on the old one to get you to return so that you switch to the new one, but in the meantime you won't actually miss anything if you don't retune now.

Channel Organizer had no problems when I ran it. It just put the old one onto 791 (where I removed it).

Film4 +1 starts at midday on the 22nd (ignoring the teleshopping), not the 27th as originally announced.

Edit: Forget the above, the EPG is showing programme information but the screen still says 'coming soon'

@andy__

As you have TopManager and PcControl, it would have been easier to use "PcControl| Channel Management" instead of using Channel Organiser. Having scanned, you could have right clicked, selected "all pay, porn, shopping..." and hit Delete Channels.

Subsequent to my previous post, the EPG entry has now been corrected with 'No Information' being shown until 27th and teleshopping starting at 08:00 to 12:00 after which Film4 +1 information is present.
