Version v2015-04-18 ======================================================= Changes: - added support for Samsung J-Series DVB-C and DVB-S channel lists (analog channels and DVB-T are not supported yet) The complete change log can be found at the end of this document About ChanSort ============================================================ ChanSort is a program to manage your Samsung, LG, Toshiba or Panasonic TV's channel list on your PC. It allows you to change program numbers and channel names, select your favorites, set a parental lock and much more. With its multi-selection capabilities and the side-by-side view of your sorted list and the available channels a list can be created in no-time. You can apply reference lists to your TV data file to restore a previous order, e.g. after running a channel scan. You can even apply the same reference list to TVs from different manufacturers. You can get get the latest version and support on http://sourceforge.net/p/chansort/discussion/ or by contacting me by email: mailto:horst@beham.biz ! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK ! ------------------------ This software was written without access to official documentation about the file formats involved. Without full knowledge about the specifics of a format there is a chance of unwanted side-effects or damage to your TV. Supported TV models ======================================================= Samsung ------- Series: B (2009)*, B (2013), C, D, E, F, H Lists: Air analog, Air digital, Cable analog, Cable digital, Cable Prime, Sat digital, Astra HD+, Freesat, TivuSat, Canal Digital Sat, Digital+, Cyfra+ * NOTE: The "clone.bin" format is not supported. In the "*.scm" format the "Air Analog"-list of the 2009 B-series doesn't support all editing features due to a lack of test files. If you have such a file, please send it to me. Instructions for transferring the channel list can be found on: http://www.ullrich.es/job/sendersortierung/senderlisten-samsung-tv-exportieren-importieren/ LG ------ Series: CS, DM, LA, LB, LD, LE, LH, LK, LM*, LN, LP**, LS, LT, LV, LW, LX, PM, PN, PT Lists: Analog TV, DTV (DVB-C, DVB-T), Radio (DVB-C/T), Sat-DTV (DVB-S2), Sat-Radio (DVB-S2) * NOTE: See system requirements for LM-series. Model xxLM640T is not supported due to its broken firmware. **: Only satellite channels supported Other models might also work, but have not been tested. If you have a .TLL file of a series not listed here, please send it to me. Instructions on how to access the hidden service-menu for transferring the channel list from/to USB can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/p/chansort/wiki/Home/ Panasonic ------- Viera models with an svl.bin or svl.db channel list (most/all? models since 2011) Toshiba ------- Models that export a .zip file containing chmgt.db, dvbSysData.db and dvbMainData.db files. (e.g. RL, SL, TL, UL, VL, WL, XL, YL models of series 8xx/9xx) VDR (Linux Video Disk Recorder) ------- Supports the channels.conf file format. Implementation for this was provided by TCr82 from the VDR project. System requirements ======================================================= - Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (Full): included in Win8, can be installed manually on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP SP3 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851 - Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) Required to edit Panasonic and Toshiba channel lists (through SQLite) http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8328 - USB-stick to transfer the channel list between your TV and PC (for Panasonic an SD-Card is needed instead of a USB-stick) - For some LG series/models the included remote control is not able to open the service menus for transferring the lists to/from USB. In that case you either need a different LG or a programmable remote. (e.g. Logitech Harmony 300, One-For-All URC3920,...)
