    Hi, I'm using zap2xml and zap2it as my source. The tvguide.xml file contains all of the episode info, date aired, movie date, genre, actors etc but MP does not display the info in the TV Guide. Any help, suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi

    Have you set "Show Episode Info" to "Number" under TV/Radio -> TV?

    Thanks, I changed the setting, stop/start the server, import tvguide.xml and still no change. Here is a screen shot of what is displayed.

    Some relevant quotes from mm1352000:
    From your two examples 'Ocean Mysteries With Jeff Corwin' has common and dd_progid episode-num systems before xmltv_ns causing it to be ignored and 'Dawn Rider' only has dd_progid which is unsupported.

    @Anthony Gagnon posted some solutions in this thread, Solution2 also uses zap2xml.

    Thanks jasmeet_181, I just read another thread that was experiencing a similar problem. They used a powershell script file to remove the offending lines, I'll give that a try.

    Ok, It seems that EPG-Buddy is the best solution. Season and Episode show as 1.1, 1.2, etc or the air date. The movies now show the air date so I'll consider this as solved. Thanks.
