I have problems finding some channels when scanning for tv channels.

When i use the same C channel or freq that my television has to set up a channel in MP manually, i get noe signal.

Can someone please tell me how to add channels manually?

That i know :)

But when i scan for tvchannels i get very many hits without name, its only called the channelnumber.
I think i have 37 channels, and maybe half shows up with name instead of number. Then i have to check each channel that have no name. It is faster for me to add channel manually because of this.

But the channel that my tv uses does not give a signal in mp. Sending a mail to my cable provider today about channel list.

If my tv uses channel C 12, how do i write this in mp?

    Other than the channel "11" in my screenshot, I do not know. And of course we are in different countries and providers.
    Maybe it's worth the time to do the scan once and check each one manually to see how it is created. Then you can export for future use.
