why am i having so many problems seting up my channels

ok this is what i am doing. through media portal setup i am scanning all channels for my firedtv-s card. It seems to find all of my sky channels (give or take a few). I then go into tv channel setup and remove any channels i dont want, and then painstakingly order them the same as my sky channel listings. Then hit the backup button and save the channellist.xml file, this then comes up with "THERE IS NO RECORDED TV DATA TO EXPORT" which i hit the ok button for.

i then load the channel list into webepg, and this comes up with all the channels, even the ones i deleted and in no order (is this correct)...

i then setup a few channels in there, run webepg and then point mediaportal at this xml file, go into media portal and the channels are all over the place..

come on guys please help, what on earth is going ok

    In Configuration\Television\TV Channels - just tick only the channels that you want to appear in the EPG and put them in the order that you want them to appear. There is no need to delete any channels in Configuration.

    You can, of course, delete any channels in WebEPG for which you don't want to gather EPG data.

    That should be all that you need to do...... :D

    thanks for the reply..

    but if i uncheck the channels in mp then backup the channellist file, why do i still get the unchecked ones displaying in webepg?

    Hopefully a simple question: I have not watched Free-to-air satellite TV for months and so unsurprisingly the other day when I wanted to watch something on UK Channel 4+1 I found that the channel had moved. Actually, loads of channels had moved. So I did a rescan on both my tuners but found that pretty much none of the channels...

    The TBS 6281 DVB T/T2 is a dual tuner without CAM capability it should work on both DVBT and DVBT2 as it seems it did in WMC according to the OP. I do not see why it should not work with MP, I am using its successor the TBS 6281-SE which works well with both MP1 and MP2 but I only have OTA DVBT2, no DVBT any more. Which version of MP...

    I have never used a Silicon Dust network tuner, but from reading elsewhere I have a recollection that in Silicon Dust's own configuration tool you need to select "MediaPortal" as the output destination (or something like that). So this might be worth checking (just in case I have remembered it correctly). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

    Having used MP1 since 15 years, these epg related problems occuring after a fresh install stumble me. Needed to change a system hdd and decided it was time for a clean install anyway. Other hardware (C2D, 8 Gb ram, no tv cards - IP only) unchanged. Was running an earlier Win10 version with MP 1.24 which had been updated for years...

    If you use the search facility of this web site and search for "all cards busy", you will find numerous threads relating to this problem (so there is probably more than one cause). Your symptoms (one tuner working, others not working for simultaneous use) suggest that you have setup only one tuner (so TV Server can use only one...
