Increase MAX_CHANNELS please!

Postby BeBrA » Tue Mar 04, 2008 8:28 pm

Hello!
First of all thank you for dvbdream... Absolutely the best dvb player I tried!
All is great, but channel list is too small...
I have a motorized dish, so it is already full and it can't save channel for the last sat position :(
Thank you!

Totally agree. I read in the SDK docs that channel list is limited to 8000.
For a motorized dish this is far too small.
Perhaps opening a other channel list each time the use changes from satellite, would require the least efforts in modification of the program?
But for the moment: indeed the best player.

I "solved" the problem in this way:
I have a list for east satellites and another for west one and I rename to chlist.chl when i move from one list to the other.
It's just a workaround and soon the lists will be full again.
Anyway absolutely the best player ever!

Here's my start.bat
It switches from east to west and viceversa. So if you have dvbdream running with east list you can just close and start switch.bat to restart dvbdream with west channel list.

Btw now my channel list is full again :(

Code: Select all

IF EXIST est.chl GOTO EST
IF EXIST west.chl GOTO WEST

:EST
MOVE chlist.chl west.chl
MOVE est.chl chlist.chl
GOTO END
:WEST
MOVE chlist.chl est.chl
MOVE west.chl chlist.chl
GOTO END
:END
START dvbdream.exe
EXIT
