    I have cleared my EPG (mixture of DVB-T and DVB-T2) and it re-populated fine, so no problems here. I suspect that there might be an issue with combined channels, but at least this is no worse than with 1.2.2.

    One important test is EPG grabbing.
    Can people please check and report how this is working with DVB EPG grabbing.

    can people who use DVB EPG use the update DVB EPG button on the manual control section of TV setup to check they still get EPG data populated

    Good point. Please report back.

    Oh, and remember that if you do click this button, it will clear your EPG until it sorts itself out, so you may miss some recordings. Don't do it if you have a recording scheduled in the next hour or two.

    Tested yesterday evening. DVB-C CineCTv6 without any problems. Not faster zapping, not slower. I will try to use both tuners at this weekend if there are any problems.

    Tested on DVB-T and DVB-T2 on freeview in UK. EPG cleared. Repopulated (from DVB) within a few minutes. Randomly checked SD and HD channel EPG for the next 7 days and did no spot any corruption. [Previously only saw corruption for HD channel entries]
    Subjectively the EPG now seems to scroll faster and setting recordings also seemed a little more responsive.

    I have previously used MP 1.2.1 with a similar patch (got it from the MP forum but can't recall exactly where) and this has been stable (both SD and HD) over the past 3.5 months.

    Windows 7 x64, MP 1.2.2, HP N36L microserver, TBS 6820 dual DVb-T/T2 tuner.

    Hi folks,

    Tested here on a single seat with BlackGold DVB-T2 card and EPG HD channels now grab perfectly. I'm also using the updated area51 tsreader and channel changes of all varities from HD to SD and so on all work really well - nice work!

    Once again, thanks to everyone involved.

    Cheers!
    Si

    Tested with DVB-T and DVB-T2. All seems to be working well. Slight improvement in zapping times? EPG grabbing worked for all SD and HD channels. Which was nice.

    id some quick tests and everything seems working fine. Zapping seems good on SD/HD Channels with and without encryption.
    I cant say if theres really an improvement or not.
