    I'm working on making the switch from MP1 to MP2 and I've noticed that the only genre color appears in my guide is the one for Series. There are plenty of Movies, Music and News genres in the database but for some reason I don't see them colored in the guide. I'ts not a big thing, just wondering about it mostly.

    Yes, genre colors are working. I assume that you
    1. installed MP 2.2.1
    2. made your color choices in the settings

    Please check also the wiki for details. You need to map genre colors in "MediaPortal 2 TV Configuration" and finally configure them in MP2's TV settings.

    Hmm, I only remember the color mapping settings. I will check the wiki and see about the other settings after work today. Thanks!

    IT WORKS... thanks ge2301. It took me a bit to figure it out, although I should have known since I obviously performed this step in MP1... I just forgot. I think what confused me this time is that it is listed under DVB EPG which I thought didn't apply to me since I was using ATSC tuners. Anyway, thanks again.
