Hi,

I use MP 1.0 with the standard Blue skin and have only 3 channels in my TV guide. It has been driving me crazy that the channels are repeated, but just found out that the is due to the Blue skin.

So before I leap to try all the skins available, can anyone list some skins do not exhibit this problem or can work around it?

Best regards,
Kenneth

    Just open the mytvguide.xml file (it's in the Blue3 skin directory - you can use Notepad to open it) and reduce the height of the TVGuide Panel until it only shows three channels - just play around with it a bit. I don't use Blue3 so I can't tell you what dimension to set. You might also want to reduce the size of the slider. Here are the codes to look for:

    <control>
    <description>TVGUIDE Panel</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>2</id>
    <posX>60</posX>
    <posY>90</posY>
    <width>640</width>
    <height>340</height>
    <colordiffuse>ffffffff</colordiffuse>
    <texture>-</texture>
    </control>


    and

    <control>
    <description>vertical timeline</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>25</id>
    <posX>30</posX>
    <posY>63</posY>
    <height>355</height>
    <colordiffuse>ffffffff</colordiffuse>
    <texture>tvguide_slider.png</texture>
    </control>

    Hope that helps

    Yes I think it's best to test with TVE3.5 the different combinations. The MTD and MCD modes are handled differently, so we have an option more to evaluate

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...

    Same as HTPCSourcer wrote, the process of this plugin is not a mass process. Depending where you download your xmltv.xml file, some websites propose to have a personal file (you choose what are channels in the .xml). An example for french country : It takes 2 minutes an 5 seconds for 4765 programs imported on my system : If...
