    I guess i should write a xmltv guide one day! ill add it to my to-do list!

    You need to use the xmltv program to download and update the files. and schedule it to run ever day or two to get new listings.

    Hmmm looked into this, to get xmltv to run do i need to install perl and then configure xmltv for the uk ?

    no need to install per - there should be an executable.

    the very rough guide is:
    1. get the latest xmltv executable from: SourceForge.net: XMLTV: Files
    2. run xmltv in the console (dos prompt) and it will tell you to run something like "xmltv --configure uk_radiotimes_tv"
    3. once you do that it will prompt you for which channels you want to download.
    4. once done, anytime you run "xmltv uk_tv_radiotimes" (or something like that), it downloads the listings. You probably need to pipe it into a file by putting "> C:\tvguide.xml" at the end.

    if thats all working it can then be imported into mediaportal, and you can then map the channels.

    i'll see if i can find time to make a nice how-to.

    although what i tend to do is load in the xmltv guide, and then have the over the air EPG overwrite it. so best of both - radiotimes xmltv for 14 days of listings, and over the air that handles last minute changes nicely.

    Thats what happens when you use windows, forget to open a dos box and just run the .exe :oops:

    I'll run what you have suggested :D

    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...
