If someone could just provide me with file format for the channel_list file that is create from excel sheet, I think I could figure out why the error pops up
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I included the resulting channel map file - i did rename it correctly to ch_list.chl
Starting channel should be 80

Hi
Thanks for the Reply but this will not work. We are using Hospitality/commercial TV's and the documentation we have states that the Channel map is a Ascii text (CSV) type file. (as shown in the attachment)
TV Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok, I will check with the other techs on this one.
