Looks great.

I get sky through Vodafone TV.

Channel mappings are different.

Any chance we might get a driver that works with that?

Is it possible to manually change the channel mappings?

Unfortunately the channel numbers are automatically generated from the data upon every poll (10 minutes).

At this stage I am not sure if we can get a Vodafone Channels driver. Sorry
