    Can anyone point me in the right direction with this, I have searched the forums but cant seem to find exactly what I need.

    Basicly I have setup mediaportal and using WEBEPG i have succesfully downloaded all the epg info for the channels I require. Now this is where I get stuck, I am basicly connecting to a dbox2 via composite input to mediaportal what I am struggling to get working is when I select a channel in the EPG it will change the channel on the dbox.

    I have succesfully configured the replacement plugin to send data to the dbox2 and can manualy get it to change channels.

    Anyone gotr any advice on this

    Sorry to be a pain :D

    No pain, we all went through it ;)

    If I understand correctly you want to set your channel(s) to "external".
    In the MP configuration.exe goto Television->TV Channels in the tree, then
    on the TV channels tab, select a channel and click edit.
    Once the new edit window opens, goto the External tab.
    Select Received by External Settop box, then the input source,
    and the STB channel number.
