Hi, can use some help here.

I can not get web EPG to work..... (alltough I'm now on MP beta 1.1, I have the same problem with 1.02)
I've looked at the docs and settings over and over again.
When I make a simple setup with one channel for one day epg, and do a grab I get 1 channel imported/ 0 programs imported.
What am I missing here?
In the log I get a grabber error.

    Re: No data

    Looks like there's something wrong with the tvgids_nl grabber.
    From your logfile the following page is requested by the grabber:

    And that page doesn't include any listings. Just says: "Uw zoekopdracht heeft meer dan 700 programma's opgeleverd, probeer specifieker te zoeken."
    Sorry I don't speak dutch :)

    Re: No data

    The translation of the dutch sentence: : Your querie gave more then 700 results, please make querie more specific.
    Looks indead as if the channel criteria are not send from TVserver to the grabber.
    Is there something that I must configure to get this working? I tought that I only should configure a mapping as can be seen in the screendump.

    Some more help is very welcome.

    :D That solved my problem. I did remember having read such a post. But couldn't find it back for some reason.
    I've compared the both files, and found a lot of differences. One for example is that there are Dutch words in stead of English words used in the XML file.......
