Hi Paul, welcome to the forum.

Channel lists for the Humax use the .fdf (formula data file) extension. Don't try opening it, as it usually tries to open as an Adobe .pdf file. Just click on Open in Formula and find the .fdf channel file to display in Formula.

Llew,the formula file downloads as a zip file and when I unzip it to load the channel list it will not open.I am using windows XP if this makes a difference.Thanks for the fast reply,Paul

No, I meant the channel list on this forum for use in Formula.

OK, to make it easier, I've unwrapped it from its folder and zipped just the .fdf file -

Glad you're up and running now Paul. As I said that channel list is a tad outdated, so you will have to rescan some TP's again.
