    The tvguide.xml file is not automatically imported if the file is located on a shared network drive (e.g. \\gx270\xmltv).

    A forced import of the same file (import button in TVserver config) works fine. Which suggest all settings are OK. An automatic import of the same file works fine (if relocated to a local drive and the path in TVserver config is adjusted accordingly).

    Can someone confirm this behaviour?

    This is important to me, because this network drive is on the only PC in the network that runs 24/24 and that is destined to become the TV server. My HTPC is not running 24/24 and is not password protected and can therefore not run a schedule to create the tvguide.xml file. I have not found a good work arround apart from the forced import (cumbersum).

    I guess this is a TVserver issue and hence I posted in the wrong place ...
