Why are all channels deleted before scanning?

Post by mecki » Thu Jun 29, 2017 11:30 pm

I wonder, why the complete channel list is deleted each time we want to scan for channels.

What if I only want to add some new channels? Sat channels may change over years. I don't want to loose my complete list and start from scratch in this situation.

About this issue, we faced some difficulty to manage TVHendEnd Data. To implement your idea, It will takes big efforts to support this feature.
So we decided to follow after clearing DB. If we want to change this issue, it will make lots of more problems for SW side.
So please understand about this issue.
