Nothing big but a lot of peoples cable boxes have channels with 4 digits now. It would be nice if mp could change to those channels.

In the case of our US provider Dish Network they are using them for foreign TV services, US HDTV and 'others' such as college/university extention programs, etc. A lot of these, especially foreign TV services, are aleady in the first 1000 but maybe they are gradually migrating to 4 digits or something.

Yes, that’s planned. The new installer (completely reworked with new GUI) is basically ready, but the alternative TV plugins are not fully finalized. After that you’ll be able to select a TV engine within the installer :)

For me it is not momentary i.e.when I press play/pause or stop the red dot appears and stays there and presumably has scheduled a recording, pressing either button again turns the red dot off and cancels the recording. I did not try with the number buttons, I am running MP 1.29.

I really wanted MP to work but I downloaded NextPVR and HDhomerun. HDhomerun picked up all my channels right away and I can watch them there. I don't have NextPVR working yet so I don't get any TV guide or able to record. But it's closer than I've been before. I don't understand why HDhomerun can pick up my channels and MP picks them...
