Do I have to watch TV to get the EPG data or does MP collect it even if I am only watching DVDs (as an example)?

Depending on your settings for epg!

If you want EPG can I recomen O2GRABBER have all swedish channel...

If you dont want epg .. dont setup epg

EPG it´s web based and collect info from the web..
you can even grab some channel with dvb cards

    Hi,

    depends your grabbing method for EPG:
    1) an external app like WebEPG, XMLTV, Clickfinder, O2Grabber
    2) DVB-EPG

    1) run once a day a task in the background. MP recognizes the new tvguide.xml and imports the infos.
    2) You have to run My TV and all channels for some time

    Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.

    Thanks jfd553, Yes, I figured out it does download from Schedules Direct. I had done what you suggested and checked my download file for that specific channel number and could not find it. So I submitted a request to update the Schedules Direct data for my area. Took a few weeks but I just heard back 3 days ago that it had been...

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.
