Is there any in built EPG support for Freesat?
Would love to move to MP2 but not without some kind of 7 day EPG
Currently use EPG Center to pull the listings and then MP XML plugin to populate the DB.

    Hi.
    Currently use EPG Center to pull the listings and then MP XML plugin to populate the DB.
    This plugin (XMLTV import plugin) is available in MP2 too and it is working exactly as in MP1. So you can use your EPG as before without the need to change anything at all...

    Thanks Lehmden
    I'm actually looking at schedules direct right now to see if it serves my needs, as I understand it it uses a json file - is that in any way compatible in MP2 as well or would it need to be converted to XML prior to the import?

    Hi.
    XMLTV is a standardized format for storing EPG data. It is compatible with nearly every TV solution for Computer out there. But as the name suggests it is an XML file, no json. For json you need a proprietary SD plugin or convert it into XMLTV format. I don't know if there is a SD (- json) plugin for MP. But I know there is a tool to convert SD- json to XMLTV, it's called mc2xml.
    With SD and mc2xml you should be able to grab a nice EPG for UK usable with every TV solution no matter if it is MP1, MP2, NextPVR,... or even TVHeadend without the need to use DVB- EPG or WebGrab+Plus...
    If you even want more you can add season and episodes numbers based on TVDB to this XML file with EPG-Buddy...
