in this version of the card there is no longer a "channel pad popup" with preset channels. this is to give each user the ability to create his own list.

"channels" configuration is not mandatory. if "channels" is not configured the remote control will work normally but you will not be able to use the channel pad. pressing the button on the remote control you will receive this message. all

  2. customizable channel pad

    option: channels: ( if you do not configure this option, on button click you receive an error message)
