Is it possible to assign unique number for every channel in playlist?
For example I would like to have couple regular channels starting from 1 to about 50 and then other from 100-115 with empty space between.

No, it's not. All the channels' numbers are sequential

I found a simple solution to this problem:

You can use "dtv://antenna:0/dvb/0" as input for an empty channel. So you can insert any "blank" program in your list. For example:

Code: Select all

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="FIRST",1 Channel FIRST
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="empty" tvg-name="empty",2
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="THIRD",1 Channel THIRD

However, with this solution when you use CH+ and CH- you can go to these "empty" channels. I suggest to the developer to support this "empty" tvg-id and use it as "SKIP". That is, using CH+ or CH- you skip the channels with the tag "empty" (or any else that you like).

I hope this helps!

I'm not sure that this is a good idea.

Several boxes and televisions has this function: skip channels. Why you don't like to include it?
In some sense is like "skip parental locked channels" when you don't like to push the PIN.
The option for skip channels is a very good functionality!

And as you can show, the solution for "null" or "empty" channels is already supported. You only have to include the "skip" for a full support.

Please, reconsider your position.
