Full Version: [4TheRecord Argus] Can't get correct channel order in groups
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hey,

I'm using Margros PVR branch and the 4tR Argus backend. I have 3 channel groups in 4tR and only have one backend active in XBMC. I tried every combination of the checkboxes that allow to keep the channel order etc in the global PVR settings, but I simply don't get them in the order I arranged them in the 4tR backend. Is this supposed to work already or is it something I configured wrong? To me it seems like the channels get imported by their internal 4TR ID or the sorting flag is missing or whatever. Shall I file a bug report?

I reported similar issues here, still have not rectified it. But you can use the "Hide Channels" option in the actual EPG to hide channels, but it doesn't work for me any longer in the Channel Manager.
Have you come up with a solution for this? I have the same problem.

sorry, no solution yet. I think it's a addon issue, but I'm not sure.
The problem with the current PVR API is that a PVR addon cannot force the channel order using a sorting flag. XBMC uses either the order as delivered by the addon or it sorts the channels according to their LCN (if available).
the current PVR API only supports 1 order, and not a separate order per group (cause that's what you're asking about if I'm correct?). please create a feature request ticket for this. too late to be changed for Eden-pvr though.
yes, I was asking for a different channel order per group. Just imagine a "Favourites" group that f.e. also has some HD channels in there, but there's also a "HD" group with all HD channels.
But it would already be fine if the order of my first group (Favourites) would be preserved - don't care much about the rest atm.
Yes, I am very interested in such a feature as well.
Every group (say Bouquet) should be able to have it's own order of channels.

I agree, it is one of the main reasons I don't use XBMC as my main Mediacentre at this moment.
