As I mentioned before, the information varies across muxes.
So for completeness you will need to do the following.
1. prepare a list of 6 channels, 1 from each multiplex (*)
2. shutdown the backend
3. tzap to a channel
5. repeat 3 & 4 for each channel on your list from #1
I can almost guarantee that you find the information on some
muxes and not on others.
(*) to save some hair pulling: BBC ONE, ITV1, Five, BBC Parliment, Sky
News, Film 4
