    I've been using Schedules direct for several years now and have not run into this before.

    About a week ago I moved to Win7 64bit from XP MCE 32bit. Installed MP 1.3 beta and rescanned all my channels. I then installed the SchedulesDirect plugin, forced Guide population, and all 13 days were downloaded on all channels. 2 Days ago I installed MP 1.3 Final, and still had all channels in Guide without rescanning. Then, to test the Channel labeled as 10000 issue, I cleared and rescanned all my channels again. Now, after forcing Guide population, I get only 24 hours of data, except for 3 channels that get 13 days. I've forced Guide population several times, at different times of the day, and each time I still get only 24 hours of data (from the time I force population), again, except for the 3 channels where I get full 13 day data.

    Weird.

    When the wife is off the TV tonight, I will uninstall SchedulesDirect and rescan my channels, then reinstall to see if the last scan somehow messed up the config data file(?) for Guide population.

    okay... finally resolved.

    After several attempts at clearing and re scanning my channels, then forcing guide update ... with varying results (not all channels were scanned in correctly - varied by tuner scan), On last try, after I had finally got all my channels scanned correctly (but Guide was incomplete as before) I deactivated the plugin, exported my channels, exited config, and removed the plugin from the TV plugins folder. Then restarted TV config. Imported my Channels (no new scan), saved config. I then added the plugin back in to the TV plugins folder. I restarted TV Config, activated SchedulesDirect and forced the Guide download (it still remembered all my criteria).

    Started MP, waited 10 minutes, and all my channels in the Guide were downloaded correctly.

    Still, not getting all the Guide data has me stumped, but I'm happy it is working now.

    Hey 2Bit... not sure that you're checking this thread anymore... but just reiterating that I had the same issue just a few days ago. Been modifying the data directly in the database to correct. Definitely seems like something is wrong with the recent version(s) of the SD plugin.

    I'm not sure I have the "most recent" version. I've not experienced any issue with the SD plugin or SD since resolving the issue in my previous posts. Still getting 13 days of data. I'm running MP 1.3 final. My SD plugin is set up as it has always been.

    Have you selected the correct data format on the Schedules Direct web site? For the USA and Canada, the EPG data can be provided by SD in XML format or JSON format. XML format is the old style, and JSON format is the new style. Unfortunately, the TV Server plugin can process only XML format. If you are in fact downloading JSON...

    P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client. Same exact network, firewall, Defender settings. It's a slightly older version of Win 10 though - I haven't updated to 20Hx on it yet. Maybe I shouldn't (or maybe I should image it...

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...

    It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)
