    From your log:
    Did you accidentally delete xmltv.dtd?

    No, xmltv.dtd is intact.

    EDIT. I renamed it as part of troubleshooting. Forgot to place it back. It wasn't working before that.

    The logs clearly state a missing xmltv.dtd.
    • Are you absolutely certain that the file exists in the above directory?
    • Are you sure that it is the correct file? This is a customized file whose content depends on the kind of service you are using to create the xml file. It can be downloaded as part of the setup process of the epg service you use.

    Not sure what to say on the xmltv.dtd error message in the log file.

    Since you are in the USA I think your mc2xml downloads are not getting any new data for July 27 or later since msft has discontinued the legacy download service. There are several forum threads about mc2xml EPG problems. For example.
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/media-center-epg-and-mc2xml-problem.131337/page-2

    Just checked my vista/wmc system (wmc not used for years), and noticed there is "no data" for any channel since it uses the legacy download.

    Near the end of your log file I see the following
    [2015-07-27 11:26:26,209] [Log ] [SetupTv ] [INFO ] - Xmltv: imported 554 channels, 0 programs status:tvguide.xml:File imported successfully;

    Some people have had success using the newer Win7 service but you need to "donator version" from the mc2xml guy. See new message in the mc2xml download page. http://mc2xml.hosterbox.net/ I have not tried the "donator version" and cannot confirm it works.

    I think your options are

    1. mc2xml (donator) + xmltv
    2. schedules direct $25/yr with schedules direct plugin
    3. schedules direct using mc2xml v1.3 + xmltv
    4. webepg/imdb

    if you use schedules direct using mc2xml v1.3 + xmltv, you need to setup SD account, setup lineup online/webpage, for mc2xml the command line for 14 days (336 = 14*24) is.
    Code (Text):
    1. mc2xml.exe -T USER:PASSWORD -d 336

    The file date of the xmltv.dtd is the same as the version that is delivered with MP 1.12. I suspect that you overwrote your provider version with the one that is delivered with MP.

    Greg, it would help if you showed what software you use to download the tvgudie.xml file. Looking in your log files it looks like mc2xml/legacy.

    htpc, I've always used the MP1 supplied xmltv.dtd file for mc2xml

    Can you check the tvguide.xml: the first lines might give some indication about service and auxiliary files used.
