So far banging my head at a brick wall seems about as painful as trawling and trawling millions of pages to get a working Freesat EPG in TV Server.
I'm screwed. Can't get cable tv where i live, can't afford a new DVBT aerial. I have Rokus over the house and now no epg.
Has anyone got a working UK epg that doesn't need a doctorate in computer programming?

I cannot be the only UK Freesat user out there!

    Has anyone got a working UK epg for FreeSat
    I use DVB-T exclusively, and I have never used satellite TV, but my understanding is that there is a dedicated radio channel that carries the EPG info. You need to select that channel and only that channel as the source for the EPG. It has a name something like "Programme Information".

    Also, you need to select the most suitable grabber for your needs (timeshifting or idle), and specify sensible timeouts. See this page in the Wiki.

    Assuming that you have done the above, go to the "Manual Control" section in "TV Server Config", and click the "Refresh DVB EPG" button. This will cause an immediate refresh of the EPG. I don't know how long this takes for satellite. For DVB-T the total process takes about 30 minutes, varying from day to day (that is around 15 minutes actually receiving the EPG, and then another 15 minutes updating the SQL database).

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

    I've no idea if you're saying C4 HD works or not. But I've scanned in WMC and in MP2, and they both get C4 HD... and previewing/watching it's clearly HD vs the SD version.
