I too want to commend iView for the v3/v9 firmware. I am on (clear) QAM so I can address some of these aspects.
The population of channel names and virtual numbers works properly and appears to be stable. I had a problem with v7 where all the virtual channel numbers changed to 7-x. I'm on Bright House Networks (BHN) cable and never received EPG, so I can't comment there.
However, I still have the odd problem with booked recordings. There's something with the data that BHN sends which ends up confusing the firmware. Here's the scenario in detail in the hopes that it will help identify the problem.
- Load v3/v9 firmware
- Perform factory reset & set for cable
- Manually re-program available channels. Physical channels: 79,80,81,83,86,87,121
- Move virtual channels 65-1 and 6-1 to positions C001 and C002, leave others unchanged (full channel list )
- Enter manual booking screen, attempt to add a booking for channel 6-1 but it's not listed... (List of available channels )
- Move virtual channel 6-1 to position C001, 65-1 is now in C002.
- Enter manual booking screen, channel 6-1 is available for bookings. (New list of available channels ) Also, all pre-existing bookings for 65-1 (WRBW My) are now listed as 6-1 (WKMG CB), and they record on that channel.
I've made a similar observation before, but it seems like there's a pointer or linked-list problem with the booking screen. In my opinion, the booking channel should be independent of the order of the channels in the channel list.
