    Not sure if this should be posted under general support, but this seems like the right spot.



    I've had MP running smoothly for some time now on multiple computers. I just have an issue with a single channel (as far as I know) that has its schedule off by 3 hours (the schedule is ahead). I'm using webEPG and IMDB for the scheduling. Not sure which which logs to upload.

    I found a similar issue on a different forum from 2009. The guy mentions going into the SQL database and deleting all the programming guide entries. Would this work for me? And how to go about it for someone with limited SQL experience?

    Please:
    1. Attach your WebEPG config (www_imdb_com.xml file).
    2. Tell us your zip code.
    3. Tell us which TV provider you selected on IMDB.
    4. Tell us which channel you're having trouble with.
    Almost certainly not.

    Sorry for the late reply. Been really busy the past week.

    1) Attached webepg config.
    2) Zip code 91402
    3) TV provider is Frontier Fios Pomona (we have Verizon FIOS TV/Internet)
    4) Bad channel list:
    So I originally thought I only had 1 or 2 bad channels, but it's much worse. We have cable service, but I don't care much for most of the channels -- so I'm only realizing it now how many channels are off. I'd say the majority of the channels are still on the right schedule. Bad channels I've found so far: CMT HD (west), SyFy HD (west), Bravo HD (west), Pop HD (west). I'm sure there is more, but if I can figure out how to fix those, I'm sure I'll be able to fix the rest. Again, the schedule is 3 hours ahead of what is actually playing for the bad channels.

    No need to apologise - that's how life works. :)

    Thanks for all the information. I think that -->this post<-- may be the solution you're looking for.

    In short, you need to change one line in your www_imdb_com.xml file.
    Before:
    <Site url="http://www.imdb.com/tvgrid/[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD]/[ID]&start_date=[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD]/?zip=91402" post="" external="false" encoding=""/>

    After:
    <Site url="http://www.imdb.com/tvgrid/[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD]/[ID]&start_date=[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD]/?zip=91402&amp;tv_prov=CA65194" post="" external="false" encoding=""/>

    (y) Thanks! Seems to have fixed the issue. Not sure why I didn't pop the question sooner.
