    I have tested TvGuide via EPG Buddy and Schedules direct XMLTV. I successfully download a large listing of channels.
    For example:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE tv SYSTEM "xmltv.dtd">

    <tv source-info-name="Schedules Direct" generator-info-name="mc2xml" generator-info-url="">
    <channel id="">
    <display-name>4.1 KFORDT</display-name>
    <display-name>27 KFORDT fcc</display-name>
    <display-name>KFORDT (KFOR-DT)</display-name>
    <display-name>NBC Affiliate</display-name>
    <channel id="">
    <display-name>4.2 KFORDT2</display-name>
    <display-name>27 KFORDT2 fcc</display-name>
    <display-name>KFORDT2 (KFOR-DT2)</display-name>
    <channel id="">
    <display-name>5.1 KOCODT</display-name>
    In the XmlTv Plugin screen:

    One entry is for KFORDT on channel 4.1. Looks great. In the mapping drop down there are multiple options for tuning channel KFORDT channel 4.1.

    How do I know which Guide Channel to map?

    I also cannot deselect "Visible in Guide" check boxes???

    How did WMC do this automatially? Am I missing some automated mapping procedure in the install/setup documentation?

    Best Regards,

    I cannot deselect
