I did, but after several attempts over a few days, I managed to get it to remember. Be patient, this is still "bleeding edge" technology:)

This bug has been there since the very beginning. The workaround is to add at least 2 channels in an edit session and it should stick for a little while at least.

I deleted one and that seems to help. Seems like 71 channels is limit? I'm not worried, I know its new and the awesome it is far outweighs the bugs. Totally satisfied.

As far as I'm aware there isn't a max-channel limit that anyone has reached.

But there have been reported peculiarities with adding/removing channels resulting in channels not "sticking" in the edits made. Not sure anyone has stumbled onto a reliable pattern yet.

I've had this problem on 1 Hopper and use the add 2 to get the dropped channel to stick. I have 152 channels in my main favs list.

There may be some good news. I haven't lost a channel since the S222 update. Maybe they fixed this.

I spoke too soon. Yesterday I eliminated 2 local channels I don't watch and reduced the list from 152 to 150. This morning it autodeleted channel 10 so I added the 3 back. Some number or combination of local channels seem to be stable. I use the other 3 user lists for music, movies and channels I record. They don't have any local channels and all are stable.
