    I agree - this thread is too long
    I suggest condensing as much info from this thread into the first post of a new thread and going from there...

    Hi there,

    Unless you know how to use SVN/Tortoise, either Visial Studio or MS build, NSIS, etc - then don't bother.

    Patch files are the actual source code (sometimes diff files too), that needs compiling/building (with the other source code) into a "new" release of MePo.

    It is far easier to wait for a generous developer to compile either their new file(s) or produce a new SVN release (like miroslav22 did) :D

    Cheers,

    J.

    When its up and running I'll start a new thread and close this one. As this is still a W.I.P this thread will remain open.

    I am not far off completing the Channel quick scan so I should have something by the end of the week.

    miroslav to implement I have had to change the BouquetisComplete from a bool to int so that a scan can be made for all channel information.

    The BAT is scanned to get the TID,NID,SID and Channel ID.
    The SDT is scanned for all the other information.

    As both need to be scanned I have changed the BouquetComplete to count to 3 then it becomes complete.

    It adds 12 seconds to the scan which isn't much of a performance hit as a full Sat scan is 17-20 minutes on 28.2e.

    Anyone know what has happened to Astra 28.2 Epg Background Audio channel, can no longer find it on a scan. Need this to get sky epg, or is it now transmitted on another channel.

    Look for the channel Sky Active in the Radio EPG Grabber. This is on the same transponder so if you activate this channel it will grab the epg.

    Just scanned and it is still there.

    Many thanks for that, I will give it a try when I get home tonight. Wonder why I cannot find background audio even after several scans, used to appear every time?.

    Any new wireless devices added to your house-hold recently ?

    Wireless Dect phones and similar devices can interfere with some sat signals. It's a known issue with sky boxes and I've found similar problems with TV cards in PC's. For example at the moment I can't receive "Clubland TV" or channels on its frequency with my Philips dect phone in the same room, if I power off the dect phone at the mains all is well again.
