Background: I wrote a little program for myself that is customizable, and collects EPG data for all my channels automatically. It matches channels automatically.

Problem: Currently it writes EPG data to an xml-file that is imported to the MP-Tvserver database with XmlTv. I would rather have my program write / update / maintain the EPG side of the database. Can someone help me with the basics of how the "program" table works, and what info goes where? Also if I'm pointed to code examples, I can't read / write C#.

Thanks in advance!

If you convert to XMLTV, it enables standard tools to be used for data enriching (adding series + episode info). The PowerScheduler plugin can do the triggering. The XMLTV plugin will automatically import when it detects the file change. Did you think of improving it?

It is almost but there feature wise, so the end users can't really tell whether something is not yet implemented or not working because of bugs. I used the MP's regional settings to set the date as "yyyy-MM-dd". I just meant that my dislike of expressing myself in writing is so severe that the idea of getting into a spiral of...

Sorry to hear that you have to go to hospital. I hope that all wil be fine. In fact you have already all the information needed. The database name and the table name are the same than in mySQL for ArgusTV. How can I provide you the Backup file ?
