Hi

I am new to cable boxes having had sat or combo boxes (h2s and h2h) before and used backup images (wooshbuild and dsayers) but today I received my Vu+ Uno 4K with cable tuners and I am stuck trying to figure out how to add channel numbers to the EPG.

I am using openATV and Autobouquets maker and crossepg downloader. Everything works well, if I press the TV button and select 'All channels' then the channel number is listed next to each channel but if I press the EPG button no channel numbers are shown and if I go to setup -> Usage & Gui -> Channel selection settings 'show channel numbers in channel selection' is set to yes but there is no option to in Autobouquets Maker or CrossEPG and if I go to setup -> EPG -> Graphical EPG settings 'Service title mode' only offers Service Name, Picon or both, no channel number.

Can channel numbers be added to the epg? if so can someone point me in the correct direction please?

Warning for only for openatv 6.0 and 6.1

Epglist.py
Code:
https://github.com/davesayers2014/ATV6.0-Components/raw/master/EpgList.py
Copy all the text and past in Notepad and save as Epglist.py


UsageConfig.py
Code:
https://github.com/davesayers2014/ATV6.0-Components/raw/master/UsageConfig.py

Copy all the text and past in Notepad and save as UsageConfig.py

Now ftp both epglist.py and UsageConfig.py to usr/lib/enigma2/python/Components and save the pyo versions to desktop reboot box


once rebooted on epg press menu change Service Title mode to service number, picon and service name or service number and service name

reduce picon width to 50

Service width about 300

Please note this can break on software updates so use at your own risk. I take no responsibility for users braking there boxes using modified python files.

I have had reports of this mod not working on certain backups and I can not offer advice on it not working on these backups as they could be using there own modified files.

Just to add only use that channel numbers plugin if you know what your doing I have had to change the py file 3 times since using atv 6 so it's likely to change again

yes, using 6. Works great thank you.

Now just got to figure out why can't do backup image on atv6 - bzip2 missing.

Backup settins appears to work as it creates the tar file, but complete backup returns the bzip error - see images:

Hi there
Will this work with openATV 6.1?

I use the epglist / Usageconfig mod by @dsayers on ATV 6.1 and works fine. Not sure if I need both or just one but it works LOL

Ok no problem I tried your py files that grog mentioned but I couldn't get adjust the gap between the channel number and service name. I've actually change my mind after seeing the numbers now lol. Be good if you get a chance for future members
