If someone wants to get creative, maybe someone could make a reference chart that shows all channels and all providers with their channel numbers. Like an excel file.

Or is that a limited view of how many companies and their combinations are out there?


Any volunteers? I would say just DIRECTV and Dish, side by side maybe all the channels in alphabetical order. Let me know if interested on taking this on, I can hook you up with the template. :D

I think it's clear that Laxguy should do it, since he's the only one that needs to know the channel number (for reasons I still don't know).

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

You missed the point the first time, and keep missing it. Dunno why you feel the need to hammer away at this! :shrug:

Is it really necessary to keep singling Laxguy out like this? He made a request to add channel numbers to the posts in the reminder thread, but from what I see it was his idea it would be for the betterment of the forum, not out of a desire to cause extra work for people. He got shot down fairly quickly, and sometimes pretty harshly, so why keep piling on?
