    G'day BigKev,
    you are a champion. 'Dots' gone and infinitely better.
    However (I'm a fussy b*stard), I now have empty parentheses after numerous shows - see attached.

    NB. also fixed space after Starring and Directors - thank you.

    The program should be able to download EPG from anywhere, as long as it is in one of the standard xmltv formats.

    Where will you be downloading your EPG data from? If you let me know the URL, I can help you with the setup.

    Kev

    thanks for the reply. i haven;t install this plugin but i tried with xmltv plugin that comes with MP but no luck. I'll try MPEPG downloader and let you know. i wanted to make sure that it has the EPG for our channels and since you said it should be able to do that, i'll deffinately give it a try and let you guys know. i wish things will be smoother with it.

    thanx

    The program does not have any pre-programmed EPG sites, you will need a URL for your local xmltv info provider.

    This info is supplied in several possible formats. If you let me know the site for your xmltv data, I can give you a step by step to set it up.

    Does anyone else know the appropriate URL for raufiq?

    @bigkev:

    i use your tool since the beginning. i tried to create my own one to map the SQL fields to the XML tags - yeah, i tried and failed. :D for relaunching your tool.

    till now, my xml file was imported correctly. i now just installed the new version and... nothing happens at all. It scans the xml file and the log tells me, that all programmes are found, but they won't be added to the SQL server. don't know where to search the failure. I use the standard MP 1.0.2 database with MS SQL 2005 Express.

    No EPG Data in MP

    I updated to the latest version (0.1.2.1) and have some problems, I don’t see the EPG data in MP. Looking at the download.log I see that it downloads the files OK, and it tells me that there are programs in the downloaded files and everything looks great in the logfile, but I don’t get anything in MP. So I installed SQL Management Studio Express to have a look in the SQL database but I’m not sure where to look, can’t find my way around in there. So I’m not sure if downloaded data ever gets put in to the SQL database or if the problem is that the MP client don’t get the data from the TV server… so I don’t know if I have a problem with MP EPG Downloader or with MediaPortal.

    My TV Server runs on Windows Server 2003 SP2, SQL Express, MP EPG 0.1.2.1.

    Hi Big-Kev,

    Any chance I could have it mapped to the 4TR EPG instead of MP?

    Thanks,
    Srikanth
