I have run through the xmltv set up guide, configured it and downloaded my program info. When I go into MP setup/tvchannels and try the import from tv guide button I either get an exception error, or it 'claims' to have imported 249 channels and 8000 odd programs but I only get channels from T onwards. Any channels begining with a letter before 't' are not listed. I have re-installed several times, and have gone through re-downloading the program info several times. I am only trying to get a channellist backup so I can use the webEPG. In the meantime Im back to using a portable TV so any help would be appreciated...

    Hi mmcleod

    use WEBEPG to configure its a lot easier to pick up from your tuned and are keeping channel list (who does watch parliament) and the same goes for channel logos do a search on forum lot easier than xmltv.

    Now Im confused...

    If I read the documentation right I need to use xmltv initially to get my 1st channel list to import into WebEPG.
    Is this the case?
    I am planning to use webEPG, but how can I import a channel list into the program without running xmltv first.

    chicken or the egg??

    Is it possible to set up WebEPG without running xmltv first? In the guide it states that you need to import channel list, but although I have run xmltv I have not been able to import all the channels into MP successfully. As stated before I only get the channels listed from the letter 't' onwards. Any channels beginning with A-S do not appear in my media portal channel list.
    Can someone please help me diagnose what is going wrong before I go mad?
    Please help with any suggestions...
