    Does anyone have a clue how to gain a full/near full EPG in the UK. Mine used to be populated but it now will not hold any EPG at all. Once I watch a channel the whole list of two or three becomes empty. Please help I want to keep my hair.

    Hi Bubsy, same story. Grabber stays idle even when refresh DVB EPG is pressed. Well it has had over and hour and not one channel has EPG. :(


    edit: Just to show what I have tried so far here is a link to another thread I started. It was about trying MP2 as MP1 stopped working altogether. I have since reinstalled Windows and as such it is clean and without the mess Windows seems to amass.

    Please attach some screenshots of what you're looking at, because I don't understand what you mean when you say "the whole list of two or three".

    In general it is highly unusual for EPG to "become empty". The only situation I can imagine when that would happen is if you've enabled conflicting EPG sources simultaneously (for example: DVB EPG grabber + XMLTV or WebEPG).

    Please also attach screenshots of the DVB EPG section of TV Server Configuration and its subsections.

    I have just Freesat info in the radio EPG ticked (if you check my link you will see I have tried other channels but none have populated the EPG{I know you have already posted on there sorry MM}). I have tried WebEPG but that has filled the EPG with nonsense with channels having the wrong data altogether. What I meant about the list of two or three is that I do not get a full list but two or three channels. So even after leaving it for days there is no EPG.

    A screen shot of all my channels in MP1? Do you know how long that would take to stitch together with GIMP!

    edit: Image of the first seven. If you need more they look the same, the channel name will change but No data available in each and every one. Again thank you for all your help MM, I really do appreciate all you are doing.

    No, not a screenshot of all your channels - I understand that's impractical, and it doesn't help me.

    If you read my earlier post again, you'll see I asked for:
    1. Some screenshots to help me understand what you mean by "the whole list of two or three". Despite the screenshot and your second attempt to explain, I still have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
    2. Screenshots of the DVB EPG section of TV Server Configuration and its subsections. This is so I can check your EPG grabber configuration. Before you ask: no, the screenshots of the "TV Epg grabber" and "Radio Epg grabber" sections do not need to show all the channels. I just want to see the state of the other options (eg. "store data for selected channels").

    [edit: To be clear about the first request...
    I don't understand whether you're talking about a list of channels, or a list of programs, or a list of something else.
    From your screenshot it's also very clear that you have more that two or three channels, so I don't understand why you say "whole" or "two or three".
    In short: as I said above, currently I really don't understand what you're saying.]
