Sorry about that, I'll be more careful next time. SD does provide Genre info I'm just not sure how the plugin transfers the SD to Mediaportal so I can't tell if the genre information is being transfered or not.
So I think I figured it out. I used XMLTV to get an XML copy of what Schedules Direct offers and attached a program excerpt below. It seems SD calls genres as catagories which is why the colors aren't showing up in the EPG. Is that something that is easy to fix? Or should I try to contact the author of the SD Plugin for MP?

Thanks for the info. All clear except whether Power Scheduler will actually run SD plugin at specified times. I'll look into it,
