Subject line says it all.
I'm in Sydney, Australia, and I've downloaded the Sydney.xml file from xmltv.net.
Do I have to rename it to tvguide.xml, or can I keep the same name as was downloaded?
Thanks in advance, for any help.

    hello,
    look to this chapter :

    Import files in new tvguide.lst​

    I think you might have misunderstood my question.
    The chapter you linked for me makes no mention of the ACTUAL FILE NAME, nor does it mention anything about alternative file names, and I couldn't find any relevant information in that chapter, which is why I posted this question on the forum.
    I'll try to rephrase it for you:
    I have downloaded an xmltv guide file called "Sydney.xml"
    I downloaded the file from " ."
    I have saved Sydney.xml to the xmltv folder, "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\SlimTVCore\v3.0\xmltv," where the file, "xmltv.dtd," is already stored.
    Do I have to RENAME "Sydney.xml" to "tvguide.xml," or can I keep the file name "Sydney.xml"?

    The linked guide says "Browse to the folder where your tvguide.xml is located".
    So you need to rename the file to be recognized. I think would have been faster to just try it ;)

    OK, but it doesn't actually say that the file MUST be named "tvguide.xml."
    Also, isn't it supposed to update automatically? How can it do that if the file have been renamed?
    Anyway, I'll try it and see what happens.
    I'll let you know the result tomorrow.
    Thanks for your help.

    i pointed you to the good way,

    using tvguide.lst, define your "Sydney.xml" inside tvguide.lst, but need to placed close to the file.

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    Update: I kept at this until I found a solution (or 2 rather). I didn't know it at the time, but perhaps this post would have been better served in the EPG discussion area.

    Nice find there Mr Henry. Wish I had that guide when I stumbled through the driver nightmare that is this device. Attached my copy of the driver zip in case the external web version disappears one day. There is also the option in Device Manager to roll back the automatically installed Microsoft driver (2009/2010) to the working...
