    Once this version is complete and working 100% then the Italy version will be released almost instantly as all I have to change is the Huffman table and regions.

    Just come across this topic could you just clarify that this is the correct procedure.

    Install SQL Database
    Download and install Mediaportal 1.2 beta and install as client only
    Run your Mepo SVN
    Run your Mepo TV Server SVN (dont install from the 1.2 beta package 1st)
    Stop service and copy DLLs including the latest 1.2.1 EPG Grabber
    Run setups as normal

    This is how I read it, would appreciate confirmation that this is correct.
    Many thanks

    Download and Install MediaPortal 1.2.0 beta(TVClient and Server) on the machine that will host the database.
    Download and Install both SVN Updates.
    Stop the TV Service.
    Copy the Custom Data Grabber.dll to the TVServer root directory (normally C:\program files\Team Mediaportal\TVServer)
    Copy the Sky UK Grabber.dll to the TV Server plugin directory (normally C:\program files\Team Mediaportal\TVServer)
    Now start the TV Service and configure the plugin to how you need it and click Grab.

    If you need more help then ask away.

    Hi DJBlu,
    I've not had chance to try this code yet (I only have the one system and it is currently running 1.2alpha with the sky epg grabber), I wonder if you could help with a few questions...

    In my setup I have two DVB-S cards and two DVB-T cards. I currently merge the common channels together (BBC1 etc.). I only use the Sky epg data for my epg. For the channels that are not free to view on DVB-S, but are on DVB-T I merge the encrypted channels but mark the card usage as for epg only. So now the questions...

    1. Will the above still work, in particular will the merged channels still be Ok with the auto update/organize system?
    2. Will the epg grab for the DVB-T only channels still work?
    3. Is there a better way of running my sort of setup with your new code?
    4. I assume that series link will arrive at some point? Any idea when?

    Many thanks...

    Andy

    1. Will the above still work, in particular will the merged channels still be Ok with the auto update/organize system? In theory Yes
    2. Will the epg grab for the DVB-T only channels still work? Not a clue at the minute
    3. Is there a better way of running my sort of setup with your new code? Not at the moment as I haven't tested yet. I will be testing in a week or so.
    4. I assume that series link will arrive at some point? Any idea when? When this plugin works 100% without error then I'll move onto Series Link. It will be an hour job as Miroslavs code will still work.

    Hi all,

    Sorry not been around much been really busy.

    DJBlu - still not had chance to look though any of the new stuff yet but it sounds promising :) Let me know if you want me to look at anything.

    Here is the current stable version compiled for 1.2.0 beta (can now be released)

    Just to recap: (see first post for more info)

    This contains only Sky EPG grabbing for UK/Italy, not channel scanning.
    Includes series link as always
    Fixes previous grabbing problems with Sky Italy

    Download Mediaportal 1.2.0 Beta & Sky EPG 1.1.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    Hi,
    That's perfect timing with the 1.2beta version miroslav22. Can you/anyone tell me what's the best way to upgrade from 1.2alpha? Will it actuallu upgrade (or is this a bad idea)? Will an export everything, remove 1.2aplha, install 1.2beta + your stuff, then import work? If not is there a better way (preferably one that avoids me having to setup all of my channels all over again)...

    Thanks again

    Andy

    This is all very exciting: I'm in favour of a plugin which allows you clever people to support different versions of MePo without having to re-engineer everything whenever a new release is published.

    However, I must admit to being a little confused as to the features of the two 1.2b offerings at the moment. Apart from Sky IT support, do they provide the same benefit? Are there features of one not provided by the other?

    And (of particular interest to me) can either of these two plugins support Freesat series-link?
