In case anyone's wondering, bbc's recent RB 2 - RB 6 additions are all on an hd mux.

Hi,
my grandson has developed a liking for some progs on Pick channel.
I looked for it via Channel Organiser “scan Sandy Heath� with the mux
numbers but CO couldn’t find it. Further investigation found that the
ArqA mux had moved on Jun 30th from 52 to 36. Using “scan all Tx�
picked it up.

Looks like you haven't updated your FvTxData.tsv file; this shows that it should have changed numbers on 17-Jul-18.

I'm also guessing that you haven't updated TopManager - the latest version is supposed to tell you if you are not using the latest version of this file ( or a couple of other ones).

The good news is that your channels shouldn't be changing again until the Jan-Mar 2020 time frame (based on info available on 2nd July).

Channels 602, 603, 604, 605 and 606 are on an HD mux, so toppies won't see them.

No doubt the schedules will get messed up on bbc1 due to Wimbledon.

Why they have to stick to bbc1 when games overrun is any ones guess, but they were practising the art last Sunday during Queen's.
They even moved to bbc4 to finish a match.
And the schedules for bbc1 were never updated for the rest of the same evening after the football overran.
Rant over.

Thanks for the info, I've updated the Freeview files on my GeeCeeBee site

Please note that True Movies+1 is only available in the Manchester area (I have no info about it)

The extra channels for Wimbledon do not apply to the toppy (only available on HD)
