    are you getting a prompt when you try to unzip the file, like somebody password protected it? If so, where did you download xmltv from? The xmltv files from its sourceforge project page (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=39046) shouldnt be password protected. If it's asking for a certificate code during the setup enter this: JIYO-TQ4O-SBUT. xmltv requires you to sign up with at zap2it.com. it's free, the only thing they make you do is fill out a questionnaire every couple of months.

    what exactly is the problem? is there data being displayed in the epg, but the program times are significantly off? If so read this thread:

    tracking this forum..... hence the late late reply :)

    I had connected teh SVideo from DN to the PVR150MCE card for my
    setup. So what is the problem?

    Mapping to external Channel

    Hi
    I just wanted to add some additional info to this thread so that all XMLTV/
    external source control will be in one thread....

    If you are using an external cable box/STB and feeding in your video
    through composite/Svideo of your capture card, you are not using the
    channel changing features of your capture card. You will have to
    change the channel # of the external STB. In order to do this, you
    need to map the external channel #.

    Either you do this manually or do an SQL command.

    -- Use this browser :
    %ProgramFiles%\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Docs\SQLite Database Browser.exe
    -- Open file :
    %ProgramFiles%\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Database\TVDatabaseVxx.DB
    -- Run SQL command :
    update channel set bExternal = 1, ExternalChannel = iChannelNr

    This will set your the channel # sent to the external STB to your XMLTV
    channel #.

    More info can be found in this thread:
    http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6669&highlight=

    Hope that helps
