First, try turning the box on and off.
Second, delete any bouqets you are not using and check to see if any of the channels have been selected more than once.
Third, edit the bouqet.xml or services.xml manually editing cooktop making sure you only have one entry of each channel. Its probably a bouqet problem.

I would suggest you to copy your bouquet and service files to pc and edit them manually, perform this method only if you understand bouquet and service xml files.

thanks for this itried to do it from my pc i could highlight them but it wouldnt let me delete them?can i do it when i am in Flash fxp?when i copy and paste them do i need for it to be and .xml type file?because i have easy word i when i copy and paste it looks nothing like the original ?
Right click and select edit or download cooktop xml editor.

de deej thanks for your help i have downloaded cooktop and found that there were 3 copies of every channel in the bouquets,now i have edited them and i have cut and pasted them to my own choice so it loks lik bbc 1 channel 1 bbc 2 channel 2 so on and so on(i take it i can do that)the next question i have saved it in "my documents" could you please tell me will it be a working file when i transfer it to my box or do i need to do something else in cooktop?
yes it will be working file. just copy those files from your pc to dbox. put it in the same directory where you originally copied them from. once copied successfully just unplug power lead from mains without shutting down your dbox. wait for 5 seconds and plug back in.

hope this will help you.

cheecs it juts that it looks like an html file is this right?but when i view it through cooktop it looks different?
