I updated to version 0.95 in Git, cleared out my addon_data folder, and it is still an issue.

I didn't realize that there was a function that deleted channels that weren't available to me but looking at sling.db shows that I still have both channels (COMEDY and COMEDY-M as well as all the other channels available in Orange and Blue). Having not known about the delete functionality, I thought is was a problem with priority which led me to add the additional order by.

When I signed up for Sling, I signed up for both Orange and Blue from the beginning so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it. Probably not but you mentioned earlier that I may have just recently changed my subscription.

When I go to Sling Orange and Blue Channel Lineup and search for "COMEDY" it only finds "COMEDY-M" as one of the channels which matches with what you mentioned above.

Ultimately it looks like the delete channels isn't working for me and that putting in the additional order by statement is not getting to the root cause of my issue. Agreed that ordering by ", substr(Channels.Call_Sign, -2) = '-M' desc" is a better temporary solution.

On a side note, the dynamic creation of channels.m3u and guide.xml is awesome! Thank you for that. 

No problem at all, key for me is to get to the bottom of the issue to keep it from happening which in this case you may be right the delete statement may need a look. It's especially easier when both parties understand whats going on.

I sort of touched on this in my example, but it appears the previously Sling Orange and Blue used to list both versions of the channel which is why I had to include a name filter so only one got displayed. It appears now they only include one copy, the Sling Orange. This is why I said it's subject to change and sadly we don't know when those changes occur till something goes wrong. So in your case even though you yourself didn't change your subscription, it appears the lineup itself has changed to exclude the duplicate channels from the "other" package.

Now onto the problem. When you say you "cleared out my addon_data folder" I'm assuming you mean Kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.video.sling? This definitely should have removed the database. It resides in that directory, it's name is "sling.db". We can try a few things for testing/resolution purposes.
Test 1 Wrote:On your device if you have Kodi running with the current version of the add-on and the guide enabled, you can either use the same device or another on your local network and navigate to http://KODI_DEVICE_LOCAL_IP:9999/channels.m3u
This is the channel playlist page injested by IPTV Simple. So if we look for "Comedy Central" you can see both what channel is reported as well as how many version of it (duplicates). The tvg-id will match one of these two:

29938328f60d447299ec48511a09ebab (Sling Blue COMEDY)
7a0ff80be0c14f4da6b6cc510b9be57b (Sling Orange COMEDY-M)

If it is indeed COMEDY-M then we can assume the problem is not the add-on but stale data in IPTV Simple/Kodi Database.
 
Test 2 Wrote:The database file mentioned above, with Kodi not running you can delete it and it will be recreated from scratch eliminating the possibility of stale data in the Sling add-on. Then going to the page in Test 1 you can see which channel is returned.
 
Test 3 Wrote:Running updates via Sling add-on settings such as Channel Update. Make sure it runs to completion 0 - 100% via the progress bar notification. The service that runs this, Slinger, uses a file for it's metrics/cue system, Slinger.json. These functions use try/catch system to suppress hard errors and provide better execution. If an error occurs, it is logged (if add-on debugging is enabled) and also written to this metrics file. Included in the Sling add-on settings is the ability to view the contents of this file which includes a field called Last_Error. If the delete statement happened to fail, the error would be written here. Do note, there can be as much as a 60 second delay between the update button click and the actual execution of it.
