Just updated and retuned, went fine. I did notice that if I look at My Favourites.mcl all the channel names are prefixed by 15 Never seen that before ? doesn't seem to affect how they are displayed on screen.

Code: Select all

Interestingly it's only like that on one machine, the other is perfectly normal.
EDIT2
Just rescanned to add a a couple of channels I missed and it's now normal :?

Glitch in the matrix :lol:

Thanks for pointing that out jimi.

The problem is caused because a format call is using "-15%s" rather than "%-15s"; this inserts "-15" before the string argument replaces the %s.

Everything after the // is a a comment and is ignored i.e. it has no effect on how the file works - it juts looks weird.

The code is embedded in some convoluted logic so I may just leave it as it is!

Odd how it only did it on 1 machine and after the second rescan it was normal (no 15) also the spare machine is a clone of my duty machine ie I used TM to restore a snapshot of the duty Toppy on the backup, so in effect from a software point of view (apart from recordings) they are idenical :?
Not that's it's important, it doesn't affect anything, I was just curious 8)
