    I've looked all through here and have not seen a thread directly addressing my problem so forgive me if it has been dealt with before.

    1. I downloaded, installed and set up MediaPortal 2 and mapped all the OTA channels that I can get. It works fine but with no guide information.
    2. I created an account with Schedules Direct and chose all the channels I potentially could get. I have not done any customizing of my channels other than that.
    3. I installed the Schedules Direct Plugin and put the files in the correct location. I opened the setup program and checked the plugin box for SD and added my login information.
    4. I don't get any guide information and can see no evidence that it is actually doing anything. I can't even figure out where any logs would be to see if it is actually doing anything.

    Can anyone help me out from here?



    Thanks,
    John

    So am I to look at this thread and come away with the understanding that the Schedules Direct Plugin does not work with MP2? That thread was more about EPG buddy than SD.

    Correct. The recommendation is that you install the EPG Buddy instead. If the description from @Lehmden is not enough, you can search the forum for other postings by @breese who reports how to configure it for a productive use in the US.

    EPG Buddy no longer works. That is the reason that I'm trying to find something different.

    Do you have a working copy of EPG Buddy? Just curious.

    Mine has no problem under MP2, not the newest one though, hence I am surprised that you are experiencing issues. Can you elaborate a bit more?

    Meanwhile try this version.

    Sorry, link is probably dead. Use this one: Share-Online - dl/METZQTDPNWW.

    Alternatively check out the MP download repository under 'plugins'.

    P.S.: @Lehmden, the OP claims that his setup of EPG Buddy has stopped working. No details known yet.

    Hi.
    Yes, older versions don't work for US (means tvguide.com) any more. The "rest" of the world could use it as before. The main reason for the latest version was, that TVGuide.com has changed something on their site. Luckily we were able to fix this.. And sorry for the unusual download link. We still are looking for a reliable solution for the mess the stupid AV tools has put EPG-Buddy into...
    If you had a look at the forum post for EPG-Buddy you would have read why older versions no longer working and where to find the new one...

    Actually, he was looking for a SD solution.

    Not really...
    And as EPG-Buddy did work again, he should be fine...
