    Hi there,
    Just wondered if somebody can help. I've setup my channels in the order I want them in Mediaportal setup, and no channel is repeated. I've also used web-EPG to import the TVguide, again with no repeats. However, when I open the TV guide the first 5 channels are repeated again at the bottom of my list. I think this is also affecting the TV-clash excalamation mark on the Red "record" sign, because although I have a dual tuner it is showing clashes.

    Does anybody know how to remove the duplicate listings and/or the unreal clashes?



    Thanks a lot

    Chris

    Duplicate Channels in EPG

    I am Also seeing the same thing. I am using webepg. I am using a usb dvb-t dongle. I run the tv-server. In Media portal on any pc that acceses the server the guide is identical with the channels listed twice. It lists all 7 channels in one group followed by the first 4 channels repeated.
    I have attached a screen dump for review.

    Perhaps this is just some kind of misunderstanding.
    If you have 4 channels in a group and the skin shows 7 lines at once in the tv guide than it's normal that the channels are repeated.
    So have selected a group with only 4 channels in it or should there be more channels in the group?

    I had a similar problem with 0.2.2.0, but this only happened on 1 channel. I still couldnt remove the channel as it just came back after MP restart, I solved the issue by changing the Channel ID in configuration and making sure the channel ID was higher than all my other channels. This way, my duplicate was the last channel in the Guide.

    I have only 4 channels to watch to. What is the reason to repeat these 4 channels multiple times?

    It's inbuilt into the skins, you could edit the tvguide skin files to only show 4, but proportionally would look rather strange.

    Now there's a good reason to upgrade to freeview satellite :D

    I will have a look at those tvguide files

    My goal is to get quality, not to get quantity. That's the reason I watch only four channels.
