I can't seem to get epg working at all using MP 1.0 with my dvb-s card. With other softwares like Mythreate & Progdvb, I can get working without doing anything. I tried many settings but without any success.

I know u can download epg from web & use plugin like, XMLEPG to import to the db but I am only interest in getting epg over the satellite stream at this point.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

VisionPlus 1020a (dvb-s) card - PCI satellite card.

Yes, I have enabled EPG data for all channels & the language English is selected as well.

Found the problem. I had the region set incorrectly in my PC which gave the wrong date & time in the "program" table in the db even the computer date & time is correct.

Thanks for the super quick reply! WinTV must download the EPG, you're right. I thought it got sent in the data packets over the air. They don't charge anything for it, so I'm somewhat puzzled. As a matter of fact, I had Media Portal about 10 years or so ago..maybe longer as time flies. I know at the time, it was not free but...

This seem to happen only occasingly for some users. I never saw it for example with my windows 10 system. As you said it doesn't cause any mis-functionality, it is just annoying. It's on the bugfix agenda for next MP2.4 release. That's correct, there are two options: Using the navigation buttons or the mouse wheel. It's also...

Other hardware (C2D, 8 Gb ram, no tv cards - IP only) unchanged. Was running an earlier Win10 version with MP 1.24 which had been updated for years...

Have you selected the correct data format on the Schedules Direct web site? For the USA and Canada, the EPG data can be provided by SD in XML format or JSON format. XML format is the old style, and JSON format is the new style. Unfortunately, the TV Server plugin can process only XML format. If you are in fact downloading JSON...
