    now and then , I need the edit the mediaportal.xml to make Norwegian audio default for DVB-S - because the GUI does not allow me to choose "nor" (NORwegian) , only uncommon stuff like nno, nob.

    Worse: I am completely unable to make the EPG grab right data, because of this mess (see attachment)
    apparently I have "nno" and two "nob" - but not one of what really matters: "nor" - and I can't find a file to edit this in...

    BTW: same problem with MP2

    The setting i stored in TV-database.
    Look in table Setting, row where idSetting=7.

    I use a script like this (from memory) to update the setting:

    update setting
    set value = ',nor,eng,'
    where idSetting=7

    Thank you, in the meantime, it got resolved by help from an developer - it turns out that EPG language is not critical (like for audio channel)
    The problem was made by me, by having enabled EPG for too many channels(transponders) - never letting it finish.
