I have been using MP1 reliably for several years but suddenly the TV Server stopped working. I've even tried doing a full uninstall and re-installing but it fails when trying to install the TV-Server. I then tried to install MP2 and it works and I am able to scan channels and watch TV. I would stay with MP2 but there is no EPG solution for the USA that I have been able to get to work. MP1 works great with Schedules Direct.

1. Can anyone provide a solution for the MP1 TV Server problem? See the error message.

2. Or, is there a way to get the Schedules Direct EPG data into MP2? I've tried EPG Buddy and XMLTV GUI to no avail and an extensive search of the forums was not helpful.

    Its just a guess but I suspect the MySQL database has become corrupted (MP2 does not use MySQL)! I suggest you clean everything up by uninstalling MySQL and deleting the leftover MySQL folders in Program Files and Program Data also do a full uninstall of MP1 and delete the Team MediaPortal folders in Program Files (x86) and Program Data.
    Reinstall MP1 and hopefully all will fly again.

    That was it! I was able to get TVServer installed and running on MP1. Thanks!

    OK, so I took a deep dive in the logs myself (gotta start to learn sometime) and noticed an error about Gentle.config Opened the file and it was full of NULLs. Not good for an XML file.

    Thanks. The Schedules Direct plugin that works for MP1 does not work for MP2. The installer for that plugin only works for MP1. I haven't been able to make the other methods work - mainly tvguide.com since EPG Buddy says that import is not working.

    You need to tell MP2, how to handle aspect ratios, that do not fit to the current screen resolution. Please go to Video Player Settings. I think you need "Intelligent Zoom" or "Pan&Scan". But remember, in this case you loose video information on top and bottom. I would prefer black bars. You could also select "Stretch", if you want to...

    Being a long time user of the SD plugin, all of this seems a lot more complicated than when I first set it up. I have a roof antenna with 2 dual HDhomeRun tuners and I scanned all the available channels in TV Server. I don't use power scheduler, nor the xmltv plugin. For me it took about 40 minutes to download my SD lineup in only...
