Can anyone recommend a channel editor that works with the Arion receivers.

I have tried Ariter2 and ChanelEdit with little success. I used Arter2 to download channel listing when I had around 300 channels. I then upgraded the boot loader and also the software and I ended up with over 1000 channels. Ariter2 just gives me an error "no magic no" as soon as it detects the receiver trying to download.

ChannelEdit seems to be quite good but it just doesn't see the receiver trying to download.

Thanks in advance

good luck!
OK, I tried it but it didn't work for some reason.

I took 5 times to download all the channels from the receiver. It kept stopping at some random place. On the 5th time it went all the way and reported "File saved saccusfully" Great I thought. I then tried to open the file to edit it and it reported that the file had the wrong structure !!!!

So far the only program I can get to work OK is ariter2n build 13 but it's useless program! You cannot move channels around, only add, edit and delite channels.

I keep looking and listening to any more suggestions :)

Indeed, however, I find that I have two windows, TV and Hotbird. The TV window is in the order I use my channels (don't know why :) ) I cannot move nor delete channels from this window. In the other window I can move them but when I delete one channel then all the channel go :(

I think I need to make a complete re-ordering of the channels and using Hotbird as the ordered group when watching TV.

I'll play around with it and see if I can make it work for my needs.

Thanks for the comments.

Hi tamazgha2003,

I have been using Ariter2n for downloading my channels from the receiver and it's quite reliable. I'm yet to upload anything though.

Is it safe to create new groups within Ariter2n and upload them to the receiver?

I found an Ariter18 which has a better interface than Ariter2n but the program crushes everytime that is saving the downloads to a file. I used two computers with the same result. It wont take a file saved with Ariter2n, different data structure I would have thought.

If it's safe to create new groups with Ariter2n and upload them, then I think I could work around this application to meet my requirements.

Thanks in advance
