Load in guide slow due to 800+ channels

I have wmc channels edited and unchecked all but 52 of the channels I watch. In serverwmc I can see just the 52 channels, but in envy when I ended the guide or channels I get all 800 and it is very slow to load and open ... Several minutes.

 

How can I ensure that envy only loads the 52 active channels that I want to help improve the experience?

 

Thanks

Yes, but did not remove the unwanted channels. I saw in serverwmc advanced xml file the use of channel groups. But unable so far to Google!and find doc on how to use it or if it will make a difference.

 

This is step one of getting of wmc. There are no silicon dust cable compatible tuners available yet. My wmc use an old ceton 6 tuner with cable card.

Solution: ServerWMC - Debug tab, Advanced settings opens an XML file. Find the channel groups section and followed the comments/instructions. Unfortunately emby guide and channels are not muct faster on teh initial load, but at least I got rid of 700 unwanted channels.

 

    <XmlDefinedChannelGroup>
      <Name>_MasterChannelGroup_</Name>
      <IncludeChannelNumbers>2.1,4.1,5.1,9.1,11.1,23.1,800-899</IncludeChannelNumbers>
    </XmlDefinedChannelGroup>

FYI. 

 

In wmc channels edited and unchecked all but 52 of the channels I watch.

When I configured the serverwmc for the channel group _MasterChannelGroup_ I got exactly what I wanted ... just the 52 channels configured in WMC ... somehow Emby or Serverwmc changes its behavior and only pulls the 52 configured channels even though the group has a range of 800-899.
