    Please help with Question: How to ?
    I have installed MP2 from the package "MP2-Setup-SummerRelease_15"
    Attempting to setup EPG and avoid tedious manual data entry. Looked at how to add plugins, for example Schedules Direct for US NYC area OTA EPG.
    MP1 has a lot of info on adding plugins and extension management, even an exe for it. However,
    MP2 documentation has no setup information or references for MPEM, MPEI. Cannot locate MDEM executable download.
    MP2 GUI has no provisions that I can find to install new plugins/extensions, only to Enable existing
    in the Server setup Plugins menu. File associations don't map *.mpe1 so the "double click" documentation
    does not apply. Looking at GitHub, MP2 has no separate MPE Installer .exe as does MP1.



    Edit: found info on "Metadata extractors" (MDE) for MP2. but no documentation on how to setup and use.

    We are currently working on a package Management plugin, which will allow to install plugins directly from the Client GUI.
    But it is not finished yet.
    Generally you simply copy the plugin into the plugins Directory from the MP2 Client.
    For TVServer plugins it should work as before.
    Someone created Little installers for several MP2 plugin, but couldn't find them now

    Thanks. Schedules Direct, plugin, an mpe1, when I extract the dll libraries from the package I see it has no "plugin" xml file as does the other plugins in that folder so I assume it is not compatible with MP2 nor does it load into TVSetup GUI.

    Thanks..

    Maybe.

    Having said that...
    Based on this comment, I'd recommend you pull SD data via mc2xml and import it with the XMLTV plugin. If you use the standard SD plugin you may expect to face tedious manual renaming of channels in order to link up the guide data. The XMLTV plugin enables you to sort that out a bit easier. Ultimately it is your choice.

    If you have MP1 running, you can export the current TV channels.
    Within the MP2 Setup TV you can then import them.

    Inside the zip are 2 files
    Drop them into
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Plugins\SlimTv.Service3\Plugins

    fire up TVSetup, you will find them in Plugins
    Configure as needed

    Which plugins?

    There are log files in c:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Log (or MP2-Client\Log) which may help.

    Hi,
