Appendix 1

Channel List Editor

The Channel List Editor PC tool enables editing exported XML channel list files in a way that is more understandable and user friendly.

Note: XML means Extensible Markup Language

Channel list should be exported from a TV set using the option available in the following menu (make sure that Hotel mode is set to OFF):

1. Insert the USB key on the side connector of the TV.

2. Enter the MENU and navigate to Channel list.

3. Select the option “Export Channel list to USB”.

4. When the process is complete remove the USB key.

The PC Tool can create a new empty channel list without importing channels on the TV, but we do not recommend this mode of use due to the high level of possible errors that can be entered by the user (wrong parameters or channel type).

When we export the channel list from the TV, on the USB drive there will be a file called “channelTable.xml” in the root folder. You can open that list for editing from within the PC tool using the ‘Open’ option. It will import all the channels and load them according to the Network Type (DVB-S, DVB-T...). Channels can be moved inside its Network

Type, added to favorites, channel info can be edited, removed, new channels can be added.

Multiple selection of the channel can be performed but the edit option is limited in that case depending on the desired action performed. Moving channel triggers renumbering of the other channels depending on the move result. There are two modes, LCN renumbering and non LCN renumbering.

For the Channel List editor we recommend usage of a PC with Windows XP or Windows 7 and .Net framework 2.0 and 3.5 should be installed. Currently only English is supported for the graphical user interface.

Clone - is much like Add just instead of leaving all the fields empty it will keep all the values from the previously selected channel except for values that needs to be unique (Service Name, Channel Number...) for easy adding of new channels on the same frequency. Depending on the Network type more or less parameters are copied. In case the user changes the Network Type all fields will be cleared and drop back to regular Add mode. When the correct values are entered the user can save with pressing “Enter” key or pressing “Add” button. Clone is disabled for analogue channels because all analogue parameters need to be unique.

Edit – enables editing of the currently selected channel info. When correct values are entered the user can save with pressing the “Enter” key or pressing the “Save” button.

Delete – removes the channel from the list. When a single service channel is selected and you are trying to delete, a message will appear asking the user to confirm deletion of the channel with the corresponding name. In case more than one channel is selected it will only inform the user of the number of channels that will be deleted.

Move - Moving a channel or a selection of channels can be done using drag and drop options. Select the TV channel and move it to desired position. Moving a channel will cause renumbering of the channels.

Note: you cannot assign numbers to TV channels, channel numbers will be assigned based on arranged list.

Move is possible only in the same subcategory; moving channel from DVB-S to Analogue will display the message below (Error! Reference source not found.):

Limitations and constraints

Service name length is not explicitly defined in DVB standard. Only limitation is the size (8bit) reserved for the value in SDT descriptor that defines the service name length, this compiles to 255 char string.

Channel number or LCN can take values from 1 – 9999 as it is defined in the code. These limitations are applied in the editor.

Save – when the channel list is according with the requirements press “Save” button for saving the channel list. This option will rewrite the open file and save it in the same location.

If you want to save the file in another location please use the “Save As” option from the File menu.

3. Import channel list to TV

To import the channel list back to the TV requires the USB drive with the file channelTable.xml saved on the root of the drive. To import the channel list back to the TV the following steps should be followed (make sure that Hotel mode is set to OFF):

1. Insert the USB key on the side connector of the TV.

2. Enter the MENU and navigate to Channel list.

3. Select the option “Import Channel list to USB”.

4. When the process is complete remove the USB key.

Do check the channel list before saving the cloning data.
