Because of the recent changes at Crystal Palace, I decided to do a complete retune on my 5000T to get rid of entries from COM 7&8 which I can no longer receive (I am not bothered by the loss and will not be changing my aerial).
So I started an automatic scan (Smart search) running and it went right through and completed. I then checked the channel list and it was still showing BBC Four HD, even though that Mux had not scanned anything. So that meant that the redundant stuff had not been cleared out.
Not being sure of the best way to proceed, I then went to the Edit Channels page and selected all TV and deleted, followed by all radio, so now there were no channels.
I then rescanned (again using Smart) and on completion the list looked as it should. But, and a big but, all my schedules had gone too and I had to recreate them as best I could.
So my question is this:
Is there another straightforward method I could have used which would have cleared out the redundant channels, while leaving the schedules intact?
