Hey! Thanks. I've been wondering how to get this done, just haven't figured out how to ask the questions.

Hey! went to zaptoit.com to sign up, but the sign up requires a certificate code. What's that all about? How do I get it.

you know, there is another way, you can use the XMLTV Automate, it automatically grabs the xmltv guides straight from zap2it, bypassing everything, jus enter your zip address and it will do the rest (u also have to pick your service provider) but it should work fine, i have tried it and i live in canada, it gave me excellent results, u can pick how many days u want to download the information for, the only problem i have seen is that the XMLTV isnt working in my version of 0.1.0.6.0, it worked fine in 1.0.5.1 :confused: dont know the problem but hey, heres the link for automate xmltv :) http://www.meedio.com/pub/Tools/XMLTV-Automate/

Great guide!!! It helped out a lot. It worked fine except I had to "Compensate time zone with -10 hours" to get the right show descriptions for EST. Perhaps that is related to having the "Use time zone information from XMLTV file" checked? It's working nicely right now, thanks! :)

Hi:

Thanks for the steps..

I get the guide in MyTV and also see the channel in the list but when i click on the channel and want to watch..the channel does not change. What am i doing wrong?
This is driving me crazy.

The channel change works fine in winTV. I am using cable and Hauppauge WinTV-Go card.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Avi

Are we supposed to just unzip the files in what you link to a folder? Im a little lost.. In case you guys havent noticed. If i havent been clear im sorry its a little late
