While the "old" webinterface can zapto channels that are defined as alternatives ...

#SERVICE 1:134:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:FROM BOUQUET "alternatives.RTLHD.tv" ORDER BY bouquet

#SERVICE 1:0:19:EF10:421:1:C00000:0:0:0
#SERVICE 1:0:1:2EE3:441:1:C00000:0:0:0

Saved with Bouquet Editor Suite v1.22

OpenWebif fails doing so.

Behaviour in OpenWebif:
Does nothing, goes nowhere

Behaviour in old web interface:
Zaps to first available service defined in alternatives

Expected behavior:
As in old web interface

I use alternatives a lot, especially for each and every HD channel to define the SD variant as alternative.

PS: Another difference in behaviour:
In webinterface-old, the page dynamically shows the EPG filling, in Open Webif you have to reload.

I also use some alternative channel lists and can confirm that none of them ever opened in OpenWebIf. I had no problems with old webinterface though. I would be great if someone could fix it.

Just for reference, from the OpenWebIf:

regular channel streaming link:
http://dm8000/web/stream.m3u?ref=1:0:16:9:1:2268:EEEE0000:0:0:0:&name=TVP INFO Gdansk

alternatives streaming link:
http://dm8000/web/stream.m3u?ref=1:134:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:FROM BOUQUET "alternatives.tvp1_hd.tv" ORDER BY bouquet&name=TVP1 HD
It looks like for the alternatives one more level of indirection is required (the proper service reference is inside the "alternatives.tvp1_hd.tv").

Maybe that will help fix it.
