    I recently expanded my setup with a multi-sat dish and a Technotrend S2-3200 DVB-S TV card, mainly to receive HD and Dutch channels. I've got the EPG grabber set up to grab the Freesat and CanalDigitaal EPG data, and I can confirm that EPG data is received for both. However, the CanalDigitaal EPG data seems to be incomplete in the sense that I always seem to receive EPG data for the same 46 channels, and unfortunately Nederland 1, 2, etc are not part of that data set. I'm grabbing CanalDigitaal EPG data on 19.2E, frequency 12515250H 22000 5/6, NID 53, TID 1105, SID 7199 and PMT 2190 (as per kingofsat). I've extended the timeout value to 30 minutes, but I can confirm it finishes grabbing within a couple of minutes anyway. I don't think it is an MP issue, but I'm interested to find out if anybody else in the MP community grabs all DVB-S CanalDigitaal EPG data successfully?

    Hi Aberdino,

    I'm watching the CanalDigitaal stations also (+TV Vlaanderen), here the EPG is also behaving strangely:

    • to get EPG on NED1-3 I have to watch EEN, CANVAS, NED1-3, it will not grab EPG for RTL4-8, SBS6, VTM, 2BE, VT4...
    • to get EPG on RTL, SBS, ... I have to watch 1 of these channels, but it won't grab NED1-3, EEN, ...
    • to get EPG on BVN, i have to watch EEN, NED1-3, ...
    German, English, French channels will display EPG after a few minutes watching.

    I was thinking of switching to WEB-EPG, but I did try that a few months ago and I abandoned it cause of a lack of stable program-info sites.

    Sorry I didn't help you, but at least you're not alone.

    Cheers.

    No, sorry, tried it again recently but I don't get the 7-day EPG for Ned1 HD, Ned2 HD, etc, so I keep using the mc2xml utilitly for those channels.
