    Yep, they pick up the channels but you can't organise them, so you have to scroll through all the blank channels to get to the content.

    Can you not even enter a channel number?

    Thanks for the info btw :-)

    ...and why would they store blank channels - or are the UK Freeview ones hardcoded into them (or something)....

    Thanks again :D

    Probably because 2rn broadcast a load of stupid blank "channels" for reasons best known to themselves, and maybe to annoy anyone without official SV equipment :)

    Non-Saorview/Nordig approved boxes without an Ireland option will store all channels as found ignoring any hidden markers/tags.
