Channel Editing / Transfer Channel List

Hi,

I have just purchased a Brand New 2017 Smart TV Model UE55MU6120 in the UK.

 

My previous Samsung TVs have all had the ability to edit the channel list, for example, move all the HD channels to the top of the list, so when I click 1 I get BBC 1 HD, when I click 2 I get BBC 2 HD etc.

 

If i go to Channel list --> Edit Channels , the option to Rename Channel is grayed out

 

Why is this feature not available ?

 

 

I have tried editing the Channel list by selecting Settings-->Broadcasting-->Expert Settings-->Transfer Channel List

Exporting the Channel List via USB, editing the list on my PC, then importing via USB

 

This does work but when the TV is switched off at night and turned on the following morning it has reverted back to the standard Channel list

 

Why is this happening ?

 

Thanks

Try to export the channel list and edit with this site http://www.samychan.com/  and import back. Be carefull to  turn off automatic channel search in stand-by.

I would like to put the HD channels at the start of the list but the renaming channels option is greyed out. Can you fix this Samsung? I have the UE43NU7400. Cheers. 

Also how do stop it auto updating if in standby, as mentioned above?

I have the same tv and have the same issue. Have tried 3rd party sites and can edit the channel list but am unable to load the new list to the tv. Really poor for a new tv not to have the ability to edit channel list!!!!!

I have exact same issue for NU7100. Even third party SAMYChan has no option for N series (2018 model). There is no option for Transfer Channels, management of favorites and sorting channels is horrible, needs hours and hours  to set hundreds of channels in favorites!

I am also having the same problem with my Samsung smart tv. I am trying to change bbc 1 hd to channel 1 and all of the other hd channels to channel 2,3,4 etc... 

I have tried changing the channels however the channel renaming button is also greyed out.
