Has anyone got a channel list for sky and freeview nz that they could take from vu duo.  I have both a dm800 and a technomate tmtwin-oe, tmtwin oe is basically the same as the vu duo and runs almost the same images.  The problems is that i am having trouble clearing some of the freeview channels on 160e.  I have my own channels list with all channels clearing tuned in from the dm800 but for some reason the list when copied across some channels do not clear.  I am willing to upload my channels list for 160e for anyone to use if needed taken from the dm800.  Alternatively and good satellite xml file would be good.

I've uploaded the two satellites.xml files from my Vu+ Duo to dropbox.  The one called etc-satellites.xml was in the /etc directory, the one called tuxbox-satellites.xml was in the /tuxbox directory.  I'm not sure if they are the same or different.  I've not consciously changed these files since I first turned my Vu+ on, but I have done a rescan from time to time - I'm not sure if that affects these files.

Anyway - help yourself, and if they are of any use, you're welcome.
Here are the URLs, I think - I'm not really very confident with dropbox yet.

Bugger - that doesn't work - Anyone know how to share these things now I've got them on dropbox?

OK - try these:

Yeah - I think I've got it now. What was baffling me was that I thought I HAD to enter email addresses for any intended recipients. When I ignored that and just went ahead and copied the links, I got what I posted as my second attempt above. It seems to work, but someone let me know if it is still wrong.
