DVB Channel Editor Tools for K1 Plus T2 S2 Android TV Box

Orange Pi Development Boards

K1 Plus T2/S2 is one of the most popular Android TV boxes with digital tuners, including both DVB-T2/T/C and DVB-S2/S tuners, and I get frequent comments and questions on K1 Plus T2 S2 review. One of the often asked request is a channel editor to use on a computer, in order to change the names, the order of channels, and set favorites.

You can export the DVB data from the DTV app in Android with all data stored in dtv_user_data directory, and in theory, one web based editor is supposed to let you do just that, but it did not work for me.

Another option shared with us by gabywap is K1_Plus_Editor.exe (Mirror) developed by Sm0ke, who appears to mostly frequent Russian forums. So I downloaded it, and launched it with Wine in Ubuntu 16.04, but the channel data I had could not load, and the program showed some error message in Russian. So instead I fired up a Windows 7 virtual machine in VirtualBox, launched the program and I could load the data without issue.

Everything is in Russian, but it’s still easy to figure out with Load, Save, Channel Up and Down buttons. Most fields seem read-only, but you can change the channel name (recName field), and arrange favorites in the columns on the right. Clicking on Save will update two files in the dtv_user_data directory dtv_preferences.xml and dvb_s_mw_s1.

Once you are done, you can zip the directory, and restore the channel data through the DTV app in K1 Plus box.

    You spend a backup of your list TV? And it turns out working.

    August 11th, 2016 at 04:53 | #4

    Yes 4pda.ru here has been uploaded and shared with as it has a working version.

    You’d better go soon or OpenEelek Kodi, LibreElek + Tvheadend to operate the tuner.
    Or DTV app to know more about everything because it confuses a further search of tv channels.

    I guess it might work with ATSC tuners too…

    Hi there!
    Sorry guys for the noob question, but I can’t find this folder on the device… Can you help me?

  12. August 26th, 2016 at 10:06 | #13

    The folder is not in the device, but in the backup file. I don’t have the device running here, but basically you need to go into the DTV setup menu, find “backup data” or “backup channel data” or similar to get a ZIP file, edit the file with the editor in Windows, zip is back, and restore data in the box.

    Dear DiZl and sm0ke,

    Thank You for Your nice work!
    2 remarks:
    – It displays the box to the editor as connected, but I can’t up/download the list (“Configuration download/upload failed”)
    – Maybe this is a special problem, but after a channel edition, from ch.548 the edited file in the PC and in the KI Plus seems to be different.
    + Would be usefull a channel “find” option in You editor.

    October 18th, 2016 at 02:48 | #21

    Dear DiZl and sm0ke,
    After a little SU configuring, the channel list dowload is OK, but the upload is not.
    Please check.

  21. JIM
    October 18th, 2016 at 18:29 | #22

    Details: After several attempts, the upload procedure is always deleting the S2 ch. list from the box.

    down-/upload error was fixed. please try the version

  23. JIM
    October 20th, 2016 at 03:36 | #24

    Thanks for the update! version is better, because it doesn’t delete the list from the box, but the upload is still not perfect.
    Box shows only one file updating procedure, and it seems to be not enough to the whole list upload.

  24. DiZil
    October 30th, 2016 at 19:58 | #25

    try new version
    let me know if the upload working now

    but a channel editor for this box that makes changing even the channels of DTT t2 is not possible to have it?

  30. sm0ke
    December 27th, 2016 at 12:19 | #31

    We add to the editor supporting T2 channels, but very few people sent their lists of channels. Proprietary storage format, no description available. Therefore, examples are needed. Probably very few people is necessary.

    Hi sm0ke and DiZil, in Italy is very useful the DVB-T editor. Here we have around 300 channel to edit.
    I don’t have find your editor with the dvb-t support (may be you don’t have release it for public use?).

    Anyway thank for your great effort to support the project.

    In file format is not possible to change it. is there a reason or is that to be so.
    i used a ki pro channel list with 06-06-2016 file format and, when i try to use it on my ki plus, dtv crashes and wont start again forcing me to reflash the box. when i backup user data from my box, the file format is 25-06-2016. Is there a way to convert the channel list to use with my box or this is a bug that you are trying to fix? thanks in advance

    Could please anyone tell me where can I find dtv_user_data directory? Is it in the box, right?

  42. April 25th, 2017 at 09:32 | #43

    Yes. It’s in the box. I can'[t remember where exactly, but it should be the root, or “Home” directory.

    Great work. I have downloaded all my 1000 channels. I have tried to add a few to my favourite list, press save, and then press upload.

    I cannot find the channels in the favourite list of my K2 box. Do I do something wrong?

    I got the message, “configuration has been successfully uploaded”!

    Edited, now it worked…

    New question, is there any option to sort my favorite list?

    I am also requesting a way to add audio and video pids. Their are some audio and video channels that will not scan in. Adding them manually is the only way to receive them. I have searched the Internet and have tried several editors. I have not found a way to edit or add pids. Thank you for your time.

    @DiZil Would be nice if the editor also would work with the KIII Pro. With version, I can connect to the KIII, but the moment I try to download the channels, etc , I get the error: “Failed to pull ‘/data/data/th.dtv/dvb_s_mw_s1. No such File or Directory”. It seems that on the KIII Pro the files have a different names. I see files with the names dtv_mw_s1, dtv_mw_st1, dtv_mw_st2, dtv_mw_t1, dtv_mw_d1 and dtv_preferences.xml.

    the structure of channel list of KIII is fully different to K1/KII
    I asked the support team of ACEMAX for description of structure
    If/when they privide me it, then I will implement the support for KIII

    Is there a way to import a satellite list using this (or any other) tool to the box, rather than manually entering one by one?

    the developer refuses to disclose structure of the list of KIII channels
    (probable, the most important national-security secret…)
    don’t expect channel editor for KIII

    Best way is to convince them to hire you to make a commercial channel editor for Ki-kii-kiii and sell it for users. πŸ™‚

  55. July 25th, 2017 at 16:59 | #56

    Since I have contact with Videostrong’s sales team, I asked. That’s the answer:

    Thank you very much for your info.
    We are developing this kind of tool as well, may release soon.
    So at precent we do not send the data structure of DVB data backups.
    But we will try the best the finish the tool and public it.

    I doubt it will be open source though.

    First want to thank you for the app and the effort that you made. I have KI pro and get the same problem as kIII. opening”dtv_user_data” in the app was useless “the folder doesn’t contains valid data”. Is it possible to send you “dtv_user_data” maybe you can find a way to make editor compatible with other boxes. Connecting with box was successful.

  57. DiZil
    August 10th, 2017 at 15:47 | #58

    here is the structure of a channel for K1+ (dvb_s_mw_s1 )

    the structure of K3 is almost same, but the problem is to find out the name of channel
    I think the name is encoded.

    just download the dtv_mw_s1 and dtv_s_mw_s1 from receiver
    you need to change the channel name on K3,
    then download the files again and compare them before and after change
    maybe you can find out any rule
