    What about over-the-air EPG?

    While I think it's neat and all, I would rather use the free over-the-air EPG. Is there any way to get RC1 to use this? Thanks,
    Jon

    Hi Jon
    You can use either over-air-based EPG or Web-based EPG. MP support both. Web-based EPG is in my opinion more reliable than over-air. Here in Denmark the probram-discription can only be downloaded for the next day while web-based EPG can download the programdiscriptions 14 days ahead.
