Hi, I just started using MediaPortal 1, but I cannot configure it to grab the EPG information. I am using a SiliconDust HDHomerun Dual TV Card (2 tuners). Windows 8 s my OS. What can I do to configure the EPG properly?

    another US EPG option is to download, install, configure the SchedulesDirect plugin. I think it costs about $25/yr for an account and download the EPG info. I have not tried this option. You can download the MePo plugin from the following and it has links to the MePo forum about SchedulesDirect

    TLD,

    I don't think the EPG option you showed applies to US OTA/ATSC. I tried turning it on, enabled background EPG grab, view show for 30 minutes etc. The logs shows EPG grab starting, but it does not find anything. I think that only applies to DVB outside the US.

    You can get US EPG grabbing working for ATSC OTA if you download/setup EPG Collector and XMLTV. Not sure I'd recommend this option for a new MePo user. I put an example of how I set this up in the following forum message.

    Oh didn't know that as i don't use TV card for EPG, I'll keep it in mind so i don't steer folks the wrong direction.
    Thanks Ron.

    I have not experienced that myself, and I don't know of any reason why that might occur (but my knowledge of how TV Server works is not extensive). It is strange that you mention this because there are now four DVB-T channels in the UK that behave in the same way (this is new for the UK). I think that these might be some sort of...

    Thanks for that. I found "Chnlineup" in the Sky grab and "FreesatEPG" in the Freesat grab and enabled them both in EPG Collector, and also set them as the EPG grabber for radio in MP2. But here's the odd thing: The next time I opened the XMLTV EPG mapper (where you map actual channels to channels available in the EPG), the radio...

    Ok some good news after much tearing out of hair lol as i refuse to be beaten at problem solving i managed to find out where EPG Collector gets its epg from and found it gets it from 'freesathome' so cribbed the settings from that and added the freesathome channel to the radio channels and selected that channel only to collect epg...

    Well, it's not a problem to add extension exclude list to the MediaInfo service. Anyway, if the MediaInfo is not available, then the video refresh rate(FPS) for the adapater cannot be determined. There is alternate way how to get the fps(from videopin). It seems to be working (at least for my tested wtv file) and can be used as...
