    TV-Server Version: 1.0RC3
    MediaPortal Version: 1.0RC3
    MediaPortal Skin:
    Windows Version: XP MCE2005 w/ SP3

    On install of MediaPortal 1.0 RC3, there seem to be a couple of directories missing. I can get TV setup to be watched, but can't get the EPG set up. All of the documentation mentions that the EPG should go in the xmltv directory as tvguide.xml with xmltv.dtd. However, RC3 doesn't seem to have installed this folder. this makes getting the epg setup difficult. i've tried installing the schedules direct plugin, as well as the WebEPG as outlined in the wiki. I've even gotten a full tvguide.xml using mc2xml and put it into an xmltv folder withmy old installed version of the xmltv folder w/ xmltv.dtd but couldn't get the xmltv plugin to recognize programs (though it did import channels). So, what do i do?
