Thanks I'll disable it and see what happens, I have gone through the set up again for the epg grabber as per the instructions on the page sent, how long should it take to start propagating the data? I have had ITV on for 10 minutes but nothing is showing.

Do you enabled the options for the language and to store data for selected and grouped channels? Further try disabling CRC-Check

I too am in the process of migrating from TVmosaic to MediaPortal2.
I am wondering, how is it possible that TVmosaic just grabs the EPG data from the satellite channels, where MP seems to have a lot of problems, or, at least requires a lot of tweaking?

    Hi.
    I too am in the process of migrating from TVmosaic to MediaPortal2.
    I am wondering, how is it possible that TVmosaic just grabs the EPG data from the satellite channels, where MP seems to have a lot of problems, or, at least requires a lot of tweaking?
    First, grabbing EPG from DVB is also easy in MP2. DVB EPG data is very poor (few days and few information about the program). This is not the fault of MP, it's because the stations don't provide better data at all... But if this is enough for you you easily can use it. You only need to check one single checkbox in TV configuration tool for it...

    Aside this TVMosaic had a payed service for EPG Data to get "better" data. Such payed services are available for other TV solutions (incl MP) too but you also can get "rich" data for free with some one time fiddling... I'm using my tool EPG-Buddy since many years without ever need to touch it as long as the data sources don't change essential things (around once in two years average).

    OK, I may not have found that single checkbox (yet).
    Up to now, I got only DVB EPG data for a few channels which were not even checked in the list of channels to grab EPG for.
    All my relevant channels got nothing.

    I did not use the extra payed service of TVmosaic, but I get enough data for normal daily use.

    No, not really. I already have looked at it many times, but I did not make much progress.
    That is why I thought to give EPG-buddy a try.

    Also a handicap is that I don't have much testing time, because my household does not allow me more!

    Thanks for your help anyway!

    Now I finally have DVB-S EPG grabbing working!
    In the configuration I had selected only the languages that I am interested in.
    Now I have changed that to all languages and now I have EPG working!

    Regards,

    Ok, got EPG Collector working, and it gives the episode numbers in the text which the previous method didn't, so that is good.

    Many thanks for the reassurance BlueMax - all seems to be working fine now and most EPG data is back on the fresh installation.

    Please attach your log files according to description in forum and wiki. It's about the adjusted refresh rate according to the content. It's a general problem with HDMI. Try switching off the refreshrate changer in MP2 settings. I'm not sure how WMC could handle it, but you would have same problem with MP1. Please see importer...

    Great - the freesatinfo channel did the trick. Thanks! Only bbc2 doesn't have the full epg, but I'll double check in a day or so and use the webgrab if it hasn't updated. I vaguely remember the radio channel solution, but couldn't find reference to it anywhere - i now realise i'd just overlooked it though...

    Not to be that guy, but one last minor issue... I got EPG-Buddy set up and running on it's new machine, but when mapping guide channels to database channels in EPGB, there is one channel name that is in the MP database but is not in the drop-down box in EPGB. The channel is correct in TV server, and it works there. I even looked at...
