Just wondering if there is a way I can add more EPG Genres and if so how can I do it, till hopefully the Devs could put an Add button. ;-)

I'd love to see the MediaPortal genres customizable. There are loads of genres that just don't fit the pre-selected ones. E.g. soap, drama, food, reality, comedy, sci-fi, game show, etc.

I agree.

If you read ETSI EN 300 468, there are 11 top level categories (genres), and each of them have several sub-categories (sub-genres).

These categories (toplevel and sub) are well known and standardized. Why is this not the default genre mapping in MP?

At least there should be really more genres in MP...

the biggest problem is that every program can have several genres. What should MP show in that case? right now it shows just the first one.

Actually in many cases it doesn't show any because none of them fit. I'd rather have the first one than nothing at all.

You need to check the wiki for TVMosaic, you have recordings as source available once TVM is installed. And of course images and music are part of the NET6 version as for NET4. If you have issues with it further infos would be good.
