View Full Version : Channel 7 rename in Tas, NS, regional SA.

It seems that Hobart & Launceston (Tas) channel "SCTV", Darwin (NT) channel "SCTV" and Port Augusta (SA) channel "GTSBKN" have been renamed on 1 July 2018 to "Seven" (and SCTVHD to 7HD).
This has broken some TV guide stuff for S3.

The question is should I fix it by changing the TV guide uploading stuff to pretend the old names are still being used (so there is no change on the mothership/server side and no change on TiVos), or fix it by adopting the new names for channels (change for mothership/server side and on TiVos in those areas, but no change to S3 TV guide uploading)?

Changing the S3 TV guide uploading so it translates the new channel names back to the old channel names is probably easier for me and less risky, so if I don't hear anything I will probably do that at least for now.

For me I am in favour of anything that makes a volunteer's job easier . . . . . and if it works even better
