E-Channelizer

The ultimate toolkit for Enigma

Features All Features

Windows Installer

In addition to the Portable edition, E-Channelizer can be installed into the Windows programs and Start menu. The new installer will check your system for the minimum requirements and help get a better setup experience.

Super Fast

E-Channelizer is very fast and responsive on mid-range PCs, yet super-fast on modern machines with background processing and multi-threading support.

E-Channelizer fairly outperformed other settings editors. It really excels at independent performance tests and various tasks that users do more often.

Auto Updates

You will not have to manually check, download or re-install future versions. E-Channelizer takes care of this for you at predefined schedule you choose.

You will be notified when a new version is ready. If you like to update, it will be directly downloaded and thereafter E-Channelizer will restart in few seconds.

Modern Design

Inspired from the flat Metro style, E-Channelizer is carefully designed and smartly organized using panels and flyouts for convenience of the user.

Colorful Themes

Choose your preferred style, either light or dark, and accent scheme from 23 different colors available, which makes your experience very enjoyable.

Start Screen

When you launch E-Channelizer, it starts with a simple screen where you could customize the program options, access your STB profiles, open a file from your PC, open a recently opened file, or read settings from STB over network.

Main Screen

When you open a file or read from STB, you will be navigated to the main screen where services, favorites and bouquets are listed horizontally side-by-side. Instead, you can alternatively change favorites and bouquets layout to a vertical list.

The Ribbon NEW

The Ribbon is designed to help you quickly find the commands that you need. Commands are organized in logical groups, which are collected together under a set of tabs. Pin the Ribbon to keep it always open while you work, otherwise collapse it if you need a bit more space.

Context Toolbars NEW

As the context menus are getting longer with the ever-increasing functionalities, they become messy and fairly confusing. To keep menus short and intuitive, the common and most used commands have been moved into new toolbars that make them easier to access and use.

Download Packages NEW

Download services and update transponders (satellites.xml) from the daily updated satellite websites. You can easily filter your own satellites and even customize the type of services that you exactly need. Moreover, you can generate bouquets from the available rich information.

Settings Statistics NEW

If you are looking for a report about your settings, the statistics includes detailed lists and charts that show you how many services of different types (HD/SD television and radio), streams, and picons available in each individual satellite and bouquet your settings contains.

Info Tooltips NEW

If you need further information about a service, favorite or bouquet, just move your mouse pointer over it. A small pop-up box will quickly appear with more useful information for few seconds. However you can disable tooltips if you find them a bit annoying while you are working.

Advanced Search

You can refine your search results using the search toggles; Aa → match case-sensitive (e.g. "sport" not "Sport"), [A] → match whole words (e.g. "sport" not "sports"), and (á) → match diacritical marks (e.g. "Barça" not "Barca").

Quick Hints

Quick hints will help you intelligently to get many useful features out there, that you maybe have no idea about. If you already got the hint, you can clickto dismiss it and never show again.

Parental Control

You could pick the parental control same way as your STB configured. Services, bouquets and favorites applied by this method will be marked as parental locked.

Error-free

Settings are checked thoroughly for errors while loading. Invalid or wrong references will be completely cleaned and errors will be fixed as far as possible.

Easy Edit

You do not have to be experienced user to edit your own settings. Technical terms are well organized in simple descriptive forms to be easily understood.

Input Validation

To ensure you get 100% valid settings, every user input and action is well validated and verified before submitting with simple helpful hints or messages.

File Formats

In addition to the Enigma2 native file format lamedb, E-Channelizer introduces a new special file format with ecz extension and two advantages:

  • Single file instead of tens of loose files like the native format.
  • Effectively compressed (~ 10-20% of the native format size).

Zipped Settings NEW

The files are available on websites mostly in compressed formats, that requires additional step to extract the compressed files in order to open the settings. Now, you can natively open, edit and save the ZIP file format (*.zip) without using another tool to unzip or zip your files.

Explorer Extension

Using the installer, you can optionally select the Explorer shell extension feature to add Open with E-Channelizer entry to the Windows Explorer's context menu when you right click a supported file (lamedb, *.ecz).

Recent Files

Remember that you could easily and quickly access the recently opened files from either the Start Screen or from the File menu.

Edit Satellites

The satellites.xml file is the main directory used by STB to scan services. You could simply and quickly in-line edit your satellites and transponders in one place.

Filter Satellites

You could toggle display of satellites, cable and terrestrial services separately. This helps to filter services easily when you have many satellites installed.

Missing Satellites

When loading settings, services are linked with satellites available in the satellites.xml. Missing satellites are unnamed and marked within the transponders list, delete their services or update the satellites.xml file to restore them.

Filter Services

Nowadays, handling thousands services of different types from many satellites and providers becomes very hard. Hence, custom filter and advanced search help you to choose which services exactly you want to display easily.

Favorite Services

If a service is added to one or more bouquets, the number of bouquets appears in thecolumn. Click it to open the list of bouquets, where you can open a bouquet or remove this service from one or all bouquets.

Batch Edit

Batch Edit helps you to change only some common characteristic of the services but keep others intact. This is very handy function when you want to edit multiple services at once instead of editing them one by one.

Import Bouquets

If you like some bouquets in another settings, it is very easy to import them into your own favorites. You can overview all bouquets and select what to import, control from which satellites, and customize their contents.

Control Favorites

When you open a bouquet, all services existing in this bouquet will be marked and highlighted with the accent color. If a favorite is added to multiple bouquets, the star iconappears with the number of other bouquets.

Add Favorites

Because favorites are the most commonly used part of settings, E-Channelizer provides comprehensive tools to add, edit and re-arrange favorites.

Arrange Favorites

You could re-arrange favorites in a bouquet to suite your preferred order simply by drag and drop. Moreover you could select favorites from a bouquet and move them to another one, or press CTRL while dragging to copy them, instead.

Custom Sort

If alphabetical sorting is too simple to fit your needs, you could define a custom sort at hierarchical levels based on the characteristic of services. Each sorting level can be optionally marked and re-ordered ascendingly or descendingly.

Invalid Favorites

Favorites are invalid if the corresponding services not found (e.g. no longer transmitted after rescan). They can be optionally kept and displayed as <N/A> so you can review and adapt bouquets, however they will be removed when saving settings.

Picons Display

Picons can be displayed optionally in the services and favorites lists. Moreover you can select the picons size for each list separately, from 3 different sizes 50x30 75x45 100x60 pixels. Picons are loaded instantly, no matter how many.

Image Formats

Picons can be selected from any image format png jpeg gif tiff bmp svg. Whatever the format, E-Channelizer converts it automatically to png on the fly. You can also select one image for several similar services (e.g. Eurosport) at once.

Import & Export

It is very difficult to find certain picons yourself in a folder with thousands of images. Instead, you can simply import them with a single click. You can also export picons the same way, using either the service names or references.

Resize Picons

You can resize one or multiple picons at once with a single click, using either one of the predefined common sizes (e.g. HD, X, Z, ...), or any other custom size you choose. Additionally you can change the color depth (32 or 8 bit).

Stream Player NEW

An integrated player based on the powerful VLC media player complete with innovative design, for watching live streams on your STB and the Internet (IPTV). You still need to either download VLC portable library from our website (recommended), or install VLC in your system.

Play Streams

Stream services from your STB and IPTV channels on the integrated media player. This helps to quickly check whether IPTV links are working before adding them to your STB.

Import IPTV

As IPTV became very popular recently, it is fairly boring and time killer to add a lot of streams one by one. Instead, you could import hundreds of them at once from the common M3U tracks and playlists which are available widely.

EPG and Picon

You can set a custom reference to assign EPG and picon to an IPTV stream. If it is supported by your image, select a DVB service to grab EPG and picon from, or alternatively drag and drop it into the IPTV stream while pressing CTRL.

Configure Profiles

To access STB over network, you could quickly add a profile by entering a name and the IP address; thereafter you will be ready to go. Other predefined configurations could be customized as well; however they are mostly valid by default.

Host or IP

To connect your STB, set the hostname or IP address (v4/v6), it is preferable to use the hostname to avoid IP changes if DHCP enabled. To connect from anywhere outside home, use a static IP address or Dynamic DNS service.

Search Network NEW

Do you keep checking the IP of your STB when you create a profile or everytime it changes? Instead, you can quickly scan your home network and find out a detailed list of all connected devices powered by E2. Then you can select the devices that you want to add profiles for.

Active Profile NEW

Once you activate your STB profile, you can view more information about the current service, EPG events, signal meter and device details. The information keeps refreshing automatically every few seconds. This is very useful to track of your STB even from outside the home.

Transfer Settings

After configuring your STB profile successfully, you will be able to read (download) and write (upload) your settings via FTP / Telnet protocol with a single click in few seconds. You will not have to save any files locally on your PC first.

Simultaneous Transfers

If you have more than one STB, you can transfer your favorite settings to all your devices at once simultaneously, with a single click in few seconds.
