    Any idea what this is? I haven't done an autotune in setup because i'm running an HDPVR, and i'm under the impression i need to have the guide downloaded first and then use a blaster to control the set top box.

    You're correct. You don't need to do an auto-tune. Are you using the latest version of the plugin (SchedulesDirectPlugin-MP1.1.0Final-svn18.rar)?

    I noticed this setting: "Add New Analog Channels is set to: True, with External Input: YRYBYInput1."

    Because of this setting, it may be looking for analog channels and finds none. There's a bug in there somewhere for sure, but try disabling this setting to see if you can get around the bug.

    I could not get the built-in hauppauge blaster plugin to work... seems to lock up the thread.... might have read that this is a known issue when IRSS is installed at the same time, not sure.

    I use IRSS with USB-UIRT.... it's never missed a recording for me.

    Good luck.

    It was driving me nuts (well, it bugged me at least) that the series "$..! My Dad Says" would not properly be found by this plugin. So I added a small feature that allows you to specify thetvdb.com ID for the series instead of the name. I suppose it's because of the "*" in the name that caused the search to fail.

    So, a new load is available with just this change.

    https://code.google.com/p/mp-schedu...sDirectPlugin-MP1.1.0Final-svn21.rar&can=2&q=

    I haven't tested with MP1.1.1, but it should be fine. Let me know if otherwise.

    EDIT: Oh ya, almost forgot... If you're having trouble getting Chuck episodes to work for this season, follow these instructions:

    Cheers.

    I am running media portal 1.2.0 alpha and am having trouble getting schedules direct to pull down a guide. Prior to the upgrade I (1.1.1) I was unable to get audio or video on either of my analog cards. I am now able to get both off of my analog cards, but I cannot get a full guide to pull down. I have two guides one for digital and one for analog, should the include analog channels be checked my case? Also is there a way to pull down two separate guides? If you need a debug log let me know. Thanks for your help.

    Yes, you can get multiple lineups into your guide... it's all a matter of the plugin mapping the channels in your SD lineup to those configured on your cards.

    Attach your tv.log after a force guide update on restart of the TV server to see what's going on.

    Hopefully this will help clarify things. Without any guide in place the analog stations work, with the plug in for schedules direct is installed they don't Thanks for any help you all can provide in this manner. If you have any further questions reguarding this matter please pm me.

    Hey HudsonHawk04,

    Try unchecking the "automatically add new digital cable/satellite channels". This is for people with a settop box only.

    Did the SD plugin auto-create a bunch of channels? If so, delete the ones that were created by the plugin.

    Instead, the plugin should simply map the auto-tuned channels to the SD lineup channels.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Geoff

    I was wondering, about how long should the schedules direct grab take? I originally had the days to keep set to five. I bumped it down to two or three this morning.
