    I just installed MediaPortal and incountered a strange problem with the EPG.

    I used the tvserver so find all my channels, and actived the default DVB-C EPG grapper (and put the idle time to 1min - just to check it gathered som EPG info). And sure enough after a minut i could find some EPG information in MediaPortal. I the went on to do other stuff, watch a movie ect. And when i wanted to watch some tv later all EPG information was gone.
    It only said, no EPG information available for this channel.
    I tried to delete all channels in the TV server and scan again - but with the same result. The first time i entered MediaPortal after the scan (and after the minut of idle time) it did find some EPG information, but later it was gone again.

    I then tried to use the manual WEBEPG grapper, and eventhough it said that EPG information had been downloaded nothing showed up inside MediaPortal.

    I then tried to take a look in the MySQL database, and i found that the program listings strange enough were in the table.
    So the data is there - but MediaPortal doesn't use them.

    I hope You can help.
