Fully agree but from memory (I now use EPG Buddy) when I used the DVB grabber I did need to select one channel per provider, only 3 providers (I have no pay TV) so no big overhead. Of course it could be very different on cable, so yes see how it looks first with a single channel.I suggested in my previous post grabbing from only one channel, and then reviewing the EPG in the MP client to see if all channels had EPG info (i.e. like the UK), or whether only a subset had EPG info. If the latter is the case, it would be necessary to determine the EPG provision in more detail. This might mean grabbing from one channel in each MUX, or possibly grabbing from one channel from each provider. (If each provider owned more than one MUX, you would not need to grab from one channel in each MUX, merely from one channel from each provider.)
What is definitely a bad idea is grabbing from every channel in every MUX.
