How does it work?

DVBLink supports source groups, consisting of a master source and one or more linked sources. Master source defines the configuration of a group.

During channel selection process the channels of a source group are operated as a whole entity - e.g. added and removed for all included sources at once.

Which sources support this feature?

Currently combining several sources into a source group is supported for DVBLink TVSource, DVBLink for IPTV and DVBLink AnalogTV.
