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.

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.

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.

B.R!

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

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

@DiZil
Thanks for the update!
0.6.3.3 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.

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

sm0ke
Guest
sm0ke

Why?
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

Hi

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 0.6.5.6, 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.

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?
