    But in the UK this would be pointless, because each MUX in the UK transmits the EPG for all MUXes, with the data for different MUXes being interleaved. So to receive a full EPG you have to receive the EPG from one MUX for one complete rotation of the EPG carousel i.e. keep receiving EPG data until you get back to where you started.
    True, only if you don't check it :

    Otherwise, you parallel treatment. ;)
    To be sure of it, clear your EPG programs, try only with one tuner, uncheck this checkbox, wait, let's say 10 minutes, yes, you have all channels EPG filled but for how many times ? (minutes, hours ?)
    Do the same checked, clear your EPG programs, always with one tuner and wait 10 minutes then ?
    You don't have all channels of course, you have only channels in MUX but, for how long ? (minutes, hours ?).
    Far for those channels, isn't it ?
    And how do you think it is, with more MUX filled in the same time, with the same 10 minutes elapsed ? :)

    Do you want to try this dll (for you only and owners of this card) ?
    Is the RAR file for MP 1.24f or 1.25p (or perhaps even 1.25f)?

    My production system is MP 1.24f, but have an older build of 1.25p in a separate partition.

    Good morning,
    It's against the latest master available yesterday then, 1.25 pre+
    But, I don't think that something has been changed since 1.24f until 1.25f in this part of code.
    Then it should work for all of this.
    Simple backup older file before,, by caution.

    I placed the modified DLL on my MP 1.25p system and ran "TV Server Config".

    There were some channel changes in the UK last week, so I performed a channel scan using one of the Pinnacle tuners. It detected the new and moved channels, with no problems. (y)

    I noticed the revised placing of the "EPG Genre Mapping", which I agree is an improvement. (y)

    I did not notice any other changes, but I don't recollect which panels had scroll bars previously, and which no longer have them. :(

    Have I missed anything that I should test?

    Ah sorry, I forget to explain.
    This is specific modifications for Pinnacle RoyalTS Tuners (aka Pinnacle 2000i dual tuner card).
    I also use it for my dev tests and I'm angry seeing a bad signal strengh for this card each time I test something.
    Unfortunately, it's driver's hardware dependant. :(
    That's why I wrote for you only and this card owners.

    Ah, I missed that :(.
    I will have another look this morning to see if the signal strength/quality looks OK.
    (I need to boot my test partition, but I have only one HTPC :(.)

    The signal strength here looks a bit odd:

    I find that normally the Pinnacle tuners receive channels reliably (even though the Pinnacle tuners are less sensitive than my TBS tuners). The channel being viewed had no problems when I took this screen shot.
