Finally getting there with MP.....but now have noticed that EPG info is only available for some channels.
ITV1/2 etc...but no BBC (I'm in the UK)
Any thoughts on what I might be doin' wrong...?

Thanks

(Oh....I'm using a TBS6922 DVB-S2 card)

    The is often an issue if you are using your tuner to pull epg data and it locks out your tuner from being available, most people disable tuner grabbing and enable webepg in tvserver plugins or use xmltv gui, restart the tv service to enable ur tuner again

    if you are using your tuner to pull epg data and it locks out your tuner from being available
    no issues here. People sometimes having issues when using Idle EPG Grabber, but i haven't heard of problems when using timeshifting DVB EPG.
    so @tonewheelkev try to disable Idle epg grabber and report whether it helps or not

    So....enabled the web-epg plugin.....and after some tinkering...got it to grab lots of epg-info...hooray!!:)

    Does this now mean that all other epg settings....outside web-epg...must now be diasabled....OR do they have some global function??

    Thanks again!
    PS....Next thing is to get the remote (an NEC type...supplied with the TBS card) working. I have some ready made .cf files to use in Winlirc, but finding it hard to get even a start.....Event ghost is even more of an anathema to me....any pointers PLEASE!!!!....;)
