Is there a guide somewhere as to how to use EPG Collector with DVBLink? I've told it to generate the plugin in the epg folder of my input sources and saved 3 individual .ini files in there as well, but it insists on continuing  to use their native EIT collector despite my having set it to "inactive" and explicitly told the EPG Collector plugin to scan the 3 frequencies I want. Or at least, EPG Collector is not finding anything although it works fine if I do a collection via NPVR.

Sounds like you have done all the right things. The ReadMe has the only info on setting up the plugin.

How do you know it has run the EIT scanner instead?

Only EITScanner results are available from the EPG Sources list and the statistics for the dvblogic plugin are empty.

I'm using DVB-T / MHEG5 if that matters?

No, DVB-T and MHEG5 are fine.

Seems like a TVSource issue. Have you tried rebooting or stopping/starting the dvblink server process?

I may have missed the DLL unblocking step after the latest fixpack, unblocked them all and redid the INIs and now it is all go. Sorry about that.

No problem - I only discovered the unblocking issue a short while ago.
