Couple of contradictions in your post. First of all SDV is Switched Digital Video and the music channels are usually all (70+) sub-channels of one non-SDV channel (frequency). i.e. channels 102.101 - 102.171
I know what SDV is and there is no contradiction or error. I said "musical" not
"music". Musical channels as in musical chairs, the ones that they keep changing around.
Second, encrypted sub channels and in the clear channels are two different things.
Not really, since they are all digital sub channels and each one occupies space has a ID. It's the encrypted SDV channels that are the problem as stated.
It's the Mits set and TVGOS causing your problems
I'm more than aware of this.
Where are you "manually deleting hundreds of encrypted sub channels"? Most likely in the TVGOS channel editor.
The channels that are being added are in the sets tuner
memory. This has nothing
to do with TVGOS. There is no change there. The deletion is under 'channels' in the TVs' menu.
My Mits did add channels on it's own (to the Mits channel memory and the TVGOS channel lineup) as TVGOS did it's scanning.
But, that is only during the initial phase where the system is acquiring data. After the host channel is ID'ed, there shouldn't
be any additional scanning since it knows what/where the host is unless the data stream has stopped.
BUT, the set still seems to 'scan' even when the above conditions have been met. Many times, it stops on cable 12 which is my other
local 'host' even though cable 3 has been flagged as the 'good host.
After the 1st scan (other than the music channels), there were around 70 'encripted' channels that had to be deleted. The next morning, 55 more were added and had to be deleted. The next day there were 180
more. That evening an additional 70 showed. All of these are between physical channel 83 and 90, apparently the ones they use for SDV.
