Why is in MP2 a genre flag for "special" and "series", but tv-config has only "special"? Is that a bug? In tv config I have only 6 epg categories, in MP2 there are 7

    Series detection is done by checking the episode number and season number properties of a program. I check our internal forum discussions and remembered this.

    Seems that does not work for all. I use clickfinder as epg, all series are then categorized as special or others. I wish to define that manually also and not only thru a routine. Thats don't work for all.

    @henso any comment form your side?
    It will get the genres defined in TV setup. From the name of the genre, they will be mapped to an MP2 EPG genre id based on our genre xml files. The map will then contain a genre id mapping to the list of genre texts from TV setup. From that map, all programs will get their color based on what genre id is found for program genre text. The genre marked as movie will always be mapped to movie genre id. Programs that have no matching genre text but have series number or episode number/part will be mapped to the series genre id.
    MP2 supports more EPG genres than TV setup does. The only way use them all, is to map all non-series genres to TV setup genres that are not named "Series" and then have series/episode number on all the ones that should be mapped to the series genre id.
    Would it not be possible to rename the TV setup "Specials" genre to "Series" and then map that to the program genres "Specials" and "Others"?
