    Maybe your dtd copy got damaged. Here is the original one in case you would like to give it a try.

    Mate, I asked for the fist lines - not a full 160 MB download ;).

    Please just open the file yourself and take a look at the beginning of the file. The text should be self-explanatory. If not just copy a few lines from the beginning and upload them.

    Oops. Sorry about that. Here is a small copy.[DOUBLEPOST=1438017160][/DOUBLEPOST]I set up an account on Schedules Direct and downloaded a file. I changed the mappings on a few of the channels and walla. Looks like Ron pegged it. M$ has killed the legacy.

    I'll finish the mappings and do another update and let everyone know.

    Thank you for the help.

    the beginning of your original tvguide.xml had "tv source-info-name="Zap2it" generator-info-name="mc2xml" so this was the old legacy, now-dead option

    Somehow I missed the announcement, when was the final death?

    Also, Schedules Direct appears to be working fine. Thank you again!

    I was able to use zap2xml instead of mc2xml to update my tvguide.xml file and allow for programs to import into xmltv.

    Follow the steps 1 and 2 from this site, http://zap2xml.awardspace.info/.

    Download zap2xml.exe. Create a new folder for the TV guide data. Place xmltv.dtd and zap2xml.exe in this new folder.

    Make a new task scheduler entry and disable the old mc2xml. Schedule the task every other day at 3am for example.

    Set the action of the task to start a program, "zap2xml -u zap2xmluser@email.xx -p password -o tvguide.xml -e -D"

    You will need the exact file locations, i used "c:\EPG\zap2xml" -u zap2xmluser@email.xx -p password -o "c:\EPG\tvguide.xml" -e -D

    I had a popup asking to use options and selected yes.

    Manually run zap2xml.exe to have tvguide.xml created.

    http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_..._TV_Setup/4_TV_Guide_Setup_(EPG)/XMLTV_mc2xml

    From the
    Setup XMLTV Plugin section
    Point XMLtv to grab the tvguide.xml from the new folder. Click import. This takes some time.
    Channel Mappings section
    Load/Refresh button. Setup channel mappings, click save.
    Setup XMLTV Plugin section
    Click import. This takes some time. Make sure "total programs imported" shows a large number instead of 0

    Open Mediaportal to make sure the tvguide listings show up. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hello Team Mediaportal,

    I too am now having an importing tv guide. I think it is about where I have XMLTV in which folder & where MPtv server looks for it, but I don't know. Attached is the error I get
