    Hi Big Kev
    Your solution looks great. I am using MP 1.0.2 and have the same issue as others - all looks OK in the logs but data is not entered to the MSSQL database (table dbo.Program). Tried the "Load Fields" button which did delete some fields but still no data into the database. Any other ideas for 1.0.2 users ??

    EPG Downloader is working as intended for me except for one little thing:

    My channel provider has several channels on the same frequency, which they swich between at set times every day - say 06:00-18:00, 18:00-2400, 24:00-06:00.

    As my EPG provider gives me access to data for all the channels I need it should be a no-brainer to combine them, but somehow I can't make EPG Downloader do it...

    Is such a feature implemented or do you have any plans to do so in the future?

    Thanks for your great work Big Kev!

    New Version

    A new version is available 0.1.2.2.

    It contains fixes for "gap filling" on MedaiPorta 1.1

    Gap filling now works for the new database structure.

    For example: some HD channels in Australia only publish program data where the program is different from the SD channel, so these channels would only have a few programs in the guide for each day.

    Gap filling allows you to fill the gaps in the HD schedule from the SD schedule, giving you a compete guide listing so you can schedule HD versions of SD program.

    See screenshot example...

    hi big_kev,

    is this new version compatible with SQLExpress 2008 and MP 1.1.0 Beta ?

    The setup PDF appears to show oztivo schedule download for Sydney...

    is there a complete oztivo guide for sydney or do i need to download each station individually?

    that source should have all the channels for Sydney, not individual channels. I don't use that source anymore but have previously used it for Melbourne channels and it was good.

    Thanks for your reply gusangora, I was getting errors, but it was just cause I needed to run as Administrator under win 7. Working perfectly now.

    I am still curious why many of the EPG listings don't separate Australian Hd stations from their SD counterpart (e.g. ABC-HD and ABC1) as they all tend to have listing differences these days...

    Thanks too to big_kev for such a simple and useful tool.
