search for "bouquet wizard" that looks like a good tool.
or do it via the web interface of the dbox.
or dl the files from the dbox edite them and upload them again.
i think they are in /var/tuxbox/zapit but not to sure as my bxo is offline.

You can edit the services and bouquets files using wordpad. They are actually in /var/tuxbox/config/zapit.

Open your services file using wordpad...you'll get loads of lines like this...

<transponder id="0003" onid="f020" frequency="339000000" inversion="2" symbol_rate="6952000" fec_inner="3" modulation="3">
<channel service_id="0439" name="MTV2" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="043a" name="MTV UK" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="043b" name="VH1" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="043e" name="MTV Hits" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="043f" name="MTV Base" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="0440" name="VH1 Classic" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="0441" name="Paramount Comedy" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="0443" name="The Music Factory" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="044b" name="VH2" service_type="01"/>
<channel service_id="04d3" name="MTV Dance" service_type="01"/>
</transponder>

The transponders can be in any order inside the services.xml file.
The bouquets.xml file looks like this...

<Bouquet name="Music" hidden="0" locked="0">
<channel serviceID="04cd" name="Kerrang" tsid="0011" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04ca" name="Kiss" tsid="0007" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04ce" name="Magic" tsid="0011" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="043f" name="MTV Base" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04d3" name="MTV Dance" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="043e" name="MTV Hits" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="043a" name="MTV UK" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="0439" name="MTV2" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04dc" name="Performance Channel" tsid="0001" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04cb" name="Q" tsid="0005" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04cc" name="Smash Hits" tsid="0011" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="04c9" name="The Box" tsid="0005" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="0493" name="THE HITS" tsid="0014" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="0443" name="The Music Factory" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="043b" name="VH1" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="0440" name="VH1 Classic" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
<channel serviceID="044b" name="VH2" tsid="0003" onid="f020"/>
</Bouquet>

This part is the music section...each channel has a different service id and not all of the music channels are on the same transponder, i.e. MTV Base is tsid=3, The Box is tsid=5.

It's a lot easier to find someone elses bouquet file and edit it rather than create one from scratch. Maybe download one from the download section to see the format. If you want to move the music section to the start, all you have to do is cut the section and paste it at the top of the file.

Remember and save every so often or you could end up doing it all over again.

Hope this helps!

The "Bouquet Wizard" software needs to be updated to allow it to save the files properly. You need to download the bouquets.xml AND services.xml files from the DBOX and save them to your desktop, then open them in bouquet wizard.

If you're having problem then you can send me your services.xml file and I'll start off a bouquet file for you using the software, which you can then finish off.

Liam.
