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="mailto:mc2xml@gmail.com">
<channel id="I4.1.21301.schedulesdirect.org">
<display-name>4.1 KFORDT</display-name>
<display-name>4.1</display-name>
<display-name>27 KFORDT fcc</display-name>
<display-name>KFORDT</display-name>
<display-name>KFORDT (KFOR-DT)</display-name>
<display-name>NBC Affiliate</display-name>
</channel>
<channel id="I4.2.43749.schedulesdirect.org">
<display-name>4.2 KFORDT2</display-name>
<display-name>4.2</display-name>
<display-name>27 KFORDT2 fcc</display-name>
<display-name>KFORDT2</display-name>
<display-name>KFORDT2 (KFOR-DT2)</display-name>
<display-name>Independent</display-name>
</channel>
<channel id="I5.1.32312.schedulesdirect.org">
<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,
Michael

I cannot deselect

OK, yeah for some reason it will not work anymore for me using the username and password method. I had to switch over to the zipcode/lineupid method, but now it is working again.

Hello Everyone, I have been working on what I needed to do since the switch over Microsoft did from Zap2it to Rovi for my Guide data. I have been using for quite sometime MC2XML in Microsoft Legacy mode and I was able to get my surrounding TV stations without a problem. Once the Guide data dried up I switched back to the Zap2xml...
