    Hi,

    What is everyboy in Oz using for TV Guide. I was using TVxB but it appears that www.ebroadcast.com.au no longer uses the same format and am no longer able to extract the guide from this page.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Does anyone else have a few issues with this?
    I constantly have ABC showing programs running for longer than on ninemsn and skipping the programs in between.
    E.g. At night the the one programs shows to be running from 5:30 till 8pm. Totally missing the news and 7:20 Report.

    Any ideas? Otherwise the util is great!

    Yes, I have noticed this with the TVxb app - for example tonight Channel 2 shows the program "Fatmania" running from 5:49 to 7:30 and then "The Report" from 7:30 until 10:25. No mention of DR WHO, Collectors, The News, Catalyst, DNA or MDA... :(

    I have had this happen a couple of times and have not been able to figure out why - there doesn't seem to be anyting different about the ninemsn data that might cause this discrepency.

    I have only noticed it on Channel 2, but that doesn't mean that it hasn't happened on other channels.

    Great, hadn't seen anyone else mention this prob was wondering if it was a user error - obviously not then.
    I'll try and figure it out.

    G'day guys,

    If this is a problem with the ABC guide on other sites, I can create a config file to get ABC guide data from abc.com.au (direct from the source). This should be acurate.

    Let me know if this is of interest. However, check the two source already supported by WebEPG (d1 and yahoo) the can't all be wrong?

    Cheers,

    /James

    It didn't find my ceton eth6 tuners. MP1 uses them, windows 10 and 11 see them but TV Mosaic doesn't see anything and there doesn't appear to be a way to make it.

    Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.
