I have just bought a new Samsung TV UE22k5500 and when I export the channel list to my USB stick it is a zip file.
I have two other Samsung TV, different models and when I export their channel list the file is a "scm file" which I can open and edit with a small programme called SamsChannelEditor but this programme does not recognise the zip file even when extracted. Is there any way I can edit the zip file and if not what is the point of being able to export it. Thanks all.
Hi, I have the same problem with a UE48JU674 where it exports only a .zip file and not a .scm and neither Samsung Channel Sorter nor ChanSort recognizes the file. Any tips or solutions? Thank you
Wouldn't recommend editing by any third party tools/programs - but editing the channels to your preference can be done once the transfer has been done to the other TV.
I assume that you've exported the channel list to USB by Broadcasting > Transfer Channel List?
Yes, I transferred the channel list to USB via the Samsung menu on the TV, channel settings / Transfer channel list. The exported channel list cannot be read by my computer or any program.
I don't know that you are referring to another TV? I want to edit the channels on my PC since I have most channels multiple times, resulting in thousands of unneeded channels in no particular order. Sorting this on the TV would take me days / weeks hence why I need to export it to my PC to edit it there.
Whichever program can do that would work for me. Thanks
No worries @vikatw. :smileyhappy:
I'm afraid I'm unable to advise using third-party programs (or recommend any), but it may be that someone else in the Community (like the thread OP @kalidor) can help you out here.
(Edit: I've temporarily removed the Accepted Solution flag so that it's more likely that someone from the Community will help out.)
If you have exported a scm file you need a programme "SamsChannelEditor. But if it has exported as a zip file you will need a programme called "ChanSort" I have 3 Samsung TV and so (I have both programmes installed on my PC.
