    Really wish there was a new version of this out and someone working on it for the new MP, I would be happy to donate to its development. I have an issue whereas every other week random channels from my "favourites" group disappear and I have to restore from the backup which I take daily. After this they are then fine. No idea why it happens, its done it for a while now even with a fresh MP install. @Adam86 my brother knows more about this than me and I think has the logs from the last time it happened. Such a shame as we spend a lot of money on hardware and tuners yet then are stunted by the software which in itself MP is amazing and the only option out there really.

    I do hope that something can be worked out.

    Sounds like you have 'Use Sky Regions' ticked in the plugin options. Untick it and the channels should remain permanently...

    This didn't use to happen though so not sure why it's started. It's not all channels just some random ones. If I untick use sky regions then will it not number and group them properly? When they go out of favourites recordings on those channels still go ahead. I just can't watch them live.

    This is the last recovered version I have of the Plugin for Sky UK. It is in vb.net but can easily be translated to c#

    I've added a build based on MP 1.15 to the 1st post in the original thread, see my post in that thread here.

    If you followed my guide correctly, it should keep the channels...

    @Brownard thank you so much for spending the time doing this - this is much appreciated.

    Given that this is the new post can you update this into the first post on here?

    Are there any advancements on this? If not I'm happy to contribute. Been a user of MP for years and have been running .11 for a while. Decided to upgrade to .15 just this morning and came across this post. If no advancements have been made I'll start a GitHub C# equivalent of DJBlu's VB.NET stuff
