after tuning eutelsat 13E, a certain number of channel groups are automatically created. With RC2 I was able to delete the groups and create my own group where put the main Italian channels like Rai1,2,3 rete4 etc.
Now it is not possible anymore. If I delete the automatically created group, I lose any reference to those channels that where in that group, without having any possibility to recover that channels.

This happen for some channel and not for other. In particular, I lose rete4, canale5, italia1 and not Rai1,2,3.
All channels are still present in the channel list, but I lose any possibility to join any group for that channels.

    If you first create the new group, assign the channels from the automatically created groups, and then delete the automatically created groups, does that work for you?

    This is the process I use, and it works fine in RC3....:)

    No way.

    That was working with RC2 in my case. As you know, there are two types of group. The deletable group and the not deletable one.
    The channel I was speacking about, are only in the deletable "mediaset" group and from there is not possible to move any channel to the my new group. If I delete that group, some channels came back to the "undeletable" mediaset group and from there I can move to the destination group.
    For other channels coming from the deleted "mediaset" group, no way, they are lost. I'm not able to get them anymore.
