    Hello,
    just started using this - so far very happy with the data and relatively simple setup however I don't seem to be getting information on actors. I had previously been using BigKevs EPG Downloader for TV Service, which had a button to select for Actors and Directors. Is there a similar setting for this program?

    The program has access to more data than is displayed.
    It has country of origin, year produced, actors, and detailed rating info to name a few.

    I don't use MediaPortal and so I don't have a good idea of exactly what data it is capable of displaying.

    It's easy to put the additional data into the XML but I need to know the exact format required.

    If you can pm me an extract of Big Kev's XML that shows how the additional data is formatted and labeled I'll add it in.

    Hi angusman,

    Thanks for creating this. Using the builtin grabber in MediaPortal has been hit and miss. Then with Nines new Go I have had no data for any of Nines channels in MP or even in my Samsung TV's built in guide. All other channels worked fine just not nine.

    I now have all Adelaide channels, in both MP TV guide and in the MP Web Interface. :D:):D

    I'm not sure how to respond. I got your PM a while ago and based on the data you sent I sent you (by PM) a link to a test version that includes actor data.
    I'm waiting for your feedback on the update before I make it official.
    If you didn't get the PM from me, please respond here or by PM again.

    Sorry mate, didn't see the pm (no email notification) and was waiting for a response in this thread. Then assumed that you hadn't received the pm.
    I will test today and report tonight.
    Thank you for all your efforts, much appreciated.
    Steve
