I just migrated from MP1 to MP2 and all seems fine apart from the EPG isn't populating.

**EDIT** now appears to be working with these settings - cant seem to delete the thread

Screenshots of my settings below, I've tried crc on and off without any difference. I selected English UK in the language and that auto ticked all other languages.

Any ideas please?

    Sure, it will work. But with these settings your server PC will never go to sleep again. Tick only Freesat UK, untick all others and test if you get a complete EPG..

    As I wrote above: Untick everything except 'Freesat'

    Look for it in the radio channel section.

    Look for it in the radio channel section.
    From the screen shot posted by the original poster, it looks as though he has a Freeview setup (DVB-T/T2), and not a Freesat setup (DVB-S/S2).

    what do I change to ensure it sleeps?
    For Freeview, the recommendation is to use "BBC1" or "BBC1 HD" as the grabbing channel, and only that channel. Deselect all other TV channels and all radio channels. The following post gives full details (other settings are important too):

    Instructions To Get Broadcast EPG In UK

    Note: if you grab the EPG from all of the channels in your EPG, your HTPC is likely to spend all of its idle hours repeatedly grabbing the same EPG. This is what @HTPCSourcer was referring to when he said that your HTPC will never sleep with the settings that you showed in the screen shot. It may seem counter-intuitive, but in the UK you should grab from only one channel (with the related settings as specified in the linked post).
