That's a shame, and a surprise, after the CECB version had both strength and quality indicators, ugly but functional. And my favorite meters, of all the CECB brands.
The 24 hour clock is another surprise, given they changed to a 12 hour clock in later production runs of the CECB.
And it sounds like setting timers is neither intuitive nor fast, if you have many channels to scroll through. Are you saying that from that 'file management' menu, you can't type the first part of the channel number to have it jump ahead to that area of the scrollbar?
