I agree that the channel chaos currently is VDR's greatest weakness. Your idea of having a separate configuration file that allows me to work with a subset of the real channel list would help a lot, but it would not solve all problems. >From my point of view, the main problem is that channels change every day. I am forced to keep track of that, which turns out to be a lot of work. I have tried to sort away channels that I do not care for into groups (using the existing channel group feature). The trouble with that is, that such a channel could change into a channel I do care for. Channels I do not care for include: * Channels that I cannot decrypt. * Channels that only have audio languages that I do not understand. * Shopping / Advertizing / Porn 0900. * Sports. * Radio. If there would be an automatic way to keep those 5 out, it would be much easier to group the rest (maybe using your "categorized" channels idea).
