Hey 'yall I have Freeview working via DVB-S in MCE 2005.

Has been up and running for a while, and was so stoked when prime finally came to DVB-S.

After the launch I did a Re-scan for channels and we were all go - re added listings to my channels, put them in the right order however there were 3 copies of TV One.

Now, every now and then, my C4 gets taken over by another copy of TV One.

A delete all channels & re-scan/setup guide puts things back in place for a couple of days, however this has happened a few times now.

Anyone got an idea on what might be going wrong?

There are multiple TV ONE feeds on Freeview now - they all carry different regional advertising.

I'm no expert on MCE2005 so can't really offer any advice on how to stop it from appearing.

I Don't mind having multiple copies of TV One, but it is annoying when it takes over my C4

News flash - The issue is not confined to TV One - this morning TV2 took over my C4.

I have been thinking - Could this be because of how I have got MCE 2005 to work using the regedit on this page?

For DVB-S and media center - you want to go with Win7. (yeah - shameless plug) It will automatically extract the guide listings and will set itself up out of the box with the standard NZ DVB-S channels (except Prime which should be added at some stage in the setup config file)

Wow that was a shameless plug.

might go with win7 eventually, but i wont go with it until it is out formally.

Anyone got a fix that will work on my MCE 2005?
