Are you saying with no channels in your lineup at it crashed OR no channels defined in MP?
No channels defined in MP. I have every single channel available for my provider selected in SD.

When it would not add the channels automatically, is your SD lineup digital?
It is supposed to add them if (1) set to in the options and (2) the lineup is digital.

Thanks for the feedback!

I had the option set, but it is Analog Cable. I'm an idiot for not reading the heading above that section: "Digital Cable/Satellite Channel Management".

Thanks again for all the hard work! I'm also willing to test the TVEngine plugin version if you decide to put one together.

I just realized the time zone is off, I would assume thats a scheduledirect issue?
Should not be a schedules direct issue.
Verify that your time zone is set correctly in Windows, not just the time, but the time zone.
The time zone on your PC is used to convert the time from schedules direct.


:oops: USER ERROR :D :sorry: :D

Imagine that... Central is not Central US

Started testing this plug-in today when SchedulesDirect opened registrations. So far it is working great!

Can't put in my full email address/user name

Somehow the login name box won't let me put in my full email address in the user name line. Schedules direct uses your email address (or allows you to), and my email address is 25 letters long, but I can only enter 24 letters into the user name text box. I'm presuming that it won't successfully log into schedules direct without my full email address. Can you update the code so I can put more characters in the textbox? I've already gotten a (paid) account with schedules direct, and I don't think I can switch my username. Thanks!

Thanks for putting this together! Thanks for the quick response (1 sep is approaching quickly :0). I'm testing it out now, but I was able to enter my user/password successfully. I'll let you know if I see anything that hasn't been reported (in other words, I'm willing to whine and complain... just kidding).
