Unfortunately Mediaportal only reads the first category in tvguide.xml even when more are present:
<programme start="20140104090000 -0800" stop="20140104113000 -0800" channel="I11.2.230146009.microsoft.com">
        <title lang="en">FA Cup Soccer *</title>
        <sub-title lang="en">Arsenal FC vs. Tottenham Hotspur FC</sub-title>
        <desc lang="en">From Emirates Stadium in London, England.</desc>
        <category lang="en">General</category>
        <category lang="en">Other</category>
        <category lang="en">Series</category>
        <category lang="en">Soccer</category>
        <category lang="en">Sports</category>
        <episode-num system="ms_progid">1.296186896</episode-num>
        <episode-num system="onscreen">448</episode-num>
        <new />
        <subtitles type="teletext" />
In this example Soccer and Sports are last on the list so they don't even appear in the EPG Genre Map:

So my feature request is for Mediaportal to have all of the categories available in the xml file so they can be mapped using the EPG Genre Map.

Here is an example of NextPVR which reads all of the categories not just the 1st one:

MediaPortal only reading the 1st category:

This would be swell. Probably needs some design consideration as how to color a program if it has multiple genres associated with different EPG colors.
