    I am trying to get a FTA channel working on Satellite 110. I did my scan and found most of the channels. I then selected my FTA channel and clicked the preview button. The window never comes up and the GUI locks up. I check my sat reader and it tells me it's hitting the exact transponder I want to hit. I am also getting a signal but nothing ever comes in.

    My logs are below.

    I am willing to do what ever it takes to get this working. If you need a TSreader file so you can add the correct pids, just let me know.

    From what I can tell, it does seem to be pulling down all the info it needs to display the channel. In the SQL database, it still does not show the video and audio pids... but even when I put them in there, I still can't get the channel to come up.

    If anyone can offer any type of help on this one, please let me know.

    I have not heard one word about this and kept updating my main post.... I think starting on 12700..... it just started to WORK! I have no idea why.. and I think I even asked Frodo if he has channed anything.. and he said no.

    I don't really see how I could mess this one up durning testing.. but maybe I did. All I know is that it is working and this makes me very happy!

    Keep up the good work Dev's.....
