Hi ge2301... out of desperation I have done an O/S restore on the machine and am in the process of putting a fresh MP2 installation on it... if the problem is still there once its reinstalled I'll attach log files...

Thanks for your reply ;)

A complete fresh re-install seems to have got it working again... I can watch TV but still no EPG data, but I think that is just going to take time to populate.

One odd thing I have noticed is that there is now no TV Service listed under services - but it must be there as when I made changes to the configuration it said that the TV Service needed to restart... so it must be there I guess!

Also all the channel numbers have moved again - doh!

Thanks and hopefully when the EPG data comes through I'll be back up and running :)

    That was probably the issue, you had a MP1 installation with TV-service in parallel, so MP2 could not work.
    In MP2, there should be only "MediaPortal 2 Server Service", no TVService startet. It's included in the server as far as I know.

    I had a vague recollection of that and remember that I had disabled the "TV Service" when I installed MP2...

    Now its sort of working again I have noticed something odd... I wanted to get the channel numbers back to what they are in the back-end and I found a post which said to set "zap by channel index" setting to "no" and it would use the backend channel numbers... which it now does.

    But - I now have 6 channels all numbered 10000 - the EPG data is there for all these channels but nothing (yet) for the channels with the normal numbers (e.g. BBC1 HD = 101, BBC2 HD = 102, etc).

    I am thinking this might be to do with the changes which were mentioned earlier?

    Hi,

    10000 is a default value. All my channels here in Germany have the 10000 value. Nothing to worry about.

    Cheers

    Many thanks for the reassurance BlueMax - all seems to be working fine now and most EPG data is back on the fresh installation.

    Then you didn’t use Nereus Skin in MP2. tMM does a great job in combination with MP2 it’s the best, if you ask me.

    Some sort of polling is the only way I think, it's just a question of how smart we can make it, e.g. check recordings returned by the API against the database at some regular interval and additionally shortly after a schedule is due to finish (or start if TV Mosaic supports playback of ongoing recordings) to get them in the database...

    @doskabouter Thanks for the response! Would that have allowed me to submit the range of days using 1-7 (vice 0-6)? Besides the 24 hour offset, I could never get the plugin to download Saturday's programs. The range from 1-6 would download Sunday to Friday and 0 would download another week day. I did briefly look at that option and...
