Thanks for your detailed reply Geoff. I have found the gbacon folder referred to in the help file at c:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local, which I assume is the correct location for Vista. However, there was no file with any extension named FvTxData in this or any of the subfolders. Is there anywhere else I should look? Or if it’s not going to be the simple job of copying and renaming a file that I had assumed then I could follow your suggestion of using Channel Organiser for retuning in future.

Thanks once more for your help.

Sorry, the file name is pccFSGTable_input4.txt (I thought it was just the extension that was changed). As a check, you can display the file with something like notepad to check it looks similar to the .tsv file

I've just updated the following files:-
* Freeview.dat (04 Nov 2020)
* Freeview(Scotland).dat (04 Nov 2020)

This is a major change to allow BBC4 to use LCN 24 in Scotland. This change affects both England and Scotland and involves moving all channels between 24 and 55 up one channel number.

FvTxData.tsv has also been updated. This new file doesn't show any future transmitter changes so, hopefully, this file won't need to be updated for some time.

Jimi has just sent me a copy of his TM_SvcIdMap,txt showing his configured channels (many thanks Jimi).

This show that the entry for STV+1 needed updating. This only affects those who use the ChannelOrganiser tap to tune (the TopManager PcControl| Channel Management method doesn't care if entries aren't completely correct)

Anyway, I've now corrected this file (just in case anyone else in Scotland uses CO).

@Jimi: Suggest you just update the file; no need to retune.

Stay safe everyone
