Among the various settings editors for set-top boxes and digital satellite receivers, E-Channelizer has set a new standard in both usability and versatility. Suitable for boxes using Enigma2 and Dreambox firmware, this editor supports UHD services (H.265 / HEVC), cable services (DVB-C Annex C), and terrestrial services (DVB-T2). Its plethora of features and its new Metro style look and feel make it a very attractive and easy-to-use tool.
The new ribbon-based interface organizes the program’s extensive functionality in a more logical way. All the functions that are more widely used are now grouped in intuitive toolbars, while tooltips and information boxes will pop-up whenever you hover your mouse over certain elements.
You can now download settings packages directly from the satellite websites. These will help you update transponders and to download new services, which you can then customize to fit your preferences. As these packages are usually compressed into ZIP files, the program now includes compression tools for you to open, edit, and save ZIPs without the need of a third-party program. You can edit your settings in a straightforward and intuitive way, edit satellites and transponders easily, batch-edit common features of your favorite services, and manage and customize all your bouquets in a hassle-free manner.
You can easily filter satellites and services just by clicking on the corresponding icons, know which satellites are missing and manage them accordingly, and arrange your favorite services in whatever way fits your preferences. Favorites are given a special treatment in E-Channelizer, with specific functions to spot all the services in a bouquet at a glance; to add, edit, and re-arrange favorites, and to sort and arrange in the way that is more convenient for you. Those favorites whose services are no longer active will also be marked accordingly, so that you can manage and review them in no time.
You can also add your own picons to your favorite services. They are available in various sizes, and you can even import new picons in any of the most widely used image file formats. E-Channelizer will resize and convert them for you, and will allow you to export them just as easily. On a different note, the program’s new built-in stream player (based on the renowned VLC media player) will let you stream services from your set-top box and IPTV channels.
E-Channelizer is a high-end settings editor for your Enigma2 STB. The extensive new functionality and the attractive new interface added in this new version set it apart from its more direct competitors.
