Area: Nextview import to MP v2.0
MP Version: 2.0 RC1 ( CVS from 05.11)
Skin: blue
Windows Version: WinXP home (SP2)
CPU Type: PIV 1,6GHz
Memory: 512 MB Kingston
Motherboard Chipset: Asus IGP RS 300
TV Card: Hauppauge PVR-150 (not MCE)
TV Card Type: hardware
TV Card Driver: HCW2_3b_23102PP2

First some Steps about nextview and PVR-150 --> It working partly !!!!
I took the latest Nxtvepg-pre (nxtvepg-2.8.0pre8-win) and added nxtvepg-2.8.0pre5-tcltk and WDMPatch_081905 (get it all HERE
Now Nextview startup and detects the PVR. BUT providerscan will not work, because its not working for the moment with PVR´s.
Switching manually to an nextview Provider by any TV-app nxtview will recognize it an beginns collecting the epg-data.

So far OK but here is the entreepoint of my problems ;(


1. After every scancycle nxtvepg pops up an window, that i should do a Providerscan (not working on PVR) or switch at aquisition to passiv-mode (not offered by Aqusition-menü)
solved. Dont know how and why, but after some scans, the new providerscan run perfect, and deteced my 2nd available Provider. Now (both merged) nextview scans OK :)

2. What is the korrekt xmltv.xml for exmport to MP. I took the standart one wich was´nt understood by MP
Solved. xmltv created a bad xml file so MP just gave out an error. I correct it and loaded the (manual created) Nextview xml without Problems.

3.1) Is there an automation, that nxtvepg running in the background all the time and when i switch myTV (in MP) autom. recieve the EPG und after a determinded time autosafe the xml to MP/xmltv dir ?
(seem to be impossible because nextview will "block" the tuner ? right ?)
3.2) is there an autom. that nxtepg run a compatible TV-app in Background, collect all available EPG-data (or stop scan after a determined time) and auto. save it to MP/xmltv dir
3.3).. just make a call out from MP (while not running any TV app) so that Nextview startup, collecdt, save and quit by a determinet time ?

I hope you understand what i did and there is any MP user who knows nxtvepg better than me.

Thanks SPYcorp

P.S. xmltv won´t work for me, dont know why. At beginning (1/2 year ago) it run great but now, after selecting all needed channels (tv_grab_de_tvmovie) it abort the scan. Neither xmltv, nor web-epg will work for me. xmltv just brings out (tryed on 2 diffrent PC´s):
"grabbing: <tv source-info-url="" source-data-url="" generator-info-name="XMLTV" generator-info-url="">Can't call method "look_down" on an undefined value at /PerlApp/grab/de_tvtoday/tv_grab_de_tvtoday line 459."

Are some german users here who have a running xmltv de_grab ?
