    Version 1.5 posted

    Found that bug that crashed MediaPortal if you weren't connected :) Shouldn't do that anymore (I hope!) and I now check for DirecTV (should fix your issue Vanessa)

    1.5:

    Put a check for DIRECTV when Zap2it classifies it as an analogue cable provider
    Put a check for when no channels are imported (normally means you didn't autotune) and notify user
    Added a popup notify if there is no Internet connection instead of silently failing
    Fixed a bug when there is no network connection it still tried to get the next update time from Zap2it

    timeout on saving channel list

    Hey Jonathan, I've been toying with media portal and your plugin, and seem to be having problems saving out the configuration for zap2it. I can configure the plugin, and it loads my lineup just fine, but when I hit the save icon to save it out, i get a "error accessing linups; the operation has timed out". After that point it seems to have locked up the plugin, as none of the operations after that error work. They all time out. I'm using version 1.4, and my log file is pasted below.

    Why are you not using v1.5 yet? I would at LEAST test on that version so John can see what the issue is in the latest code.

    I just wanted to say thanks, Jon, for being on top of this plugin when I've found bugs here and there and for fixing them so that we are all able to enjoy our tv! Keep up the good work man.

    Ok, I've updated to 1.5, and I still have the same problem. Could this be caused by the fact that I don't have a capture card in this machine?

    What is the point of having a guide with nothing with watch or record it with? You would have better luck with just hitting tvguide.com. I don't understand the point in all this.

    Where can I get version 1.5? The link on the first post of this thread doesn't seem to work, and the plugins download page doesn't work either, and also says it is version 1.4 anyway.

    Thanks.

    Some people have a HTPC with an internet connection but no tuner, and only basic cable - ie: no digital cable box to provide them with an EPG.

    Also, Your link is timing out ASiDiE.
