No it's correct. It must be the Dish parameters.

Try any of these that you haven't tried already

Dish:9750000,10600000,11700000

Dish:10700000,10700000,11800000

Dish:11300000,11300000,11800000

Dish:10750000,10750000,11800000

More snags! I can collect either Freeview or opentv epg's, but not both in the same run. I have tried several variations on this .ini with the same code 3 result:

Output:TVGuide.xml
Location:NZL //Mandatory for OpenTV
Tuner:1,9 //Terrestrial and satellite tuners here
Frequency:674000,8,MHEG5
Satellite:1600
Dish:10750000,10750000,0
Frequency:12519000,22500,3/4,H,OPENTV //This is the OpenTV frequency for NZ
Channel:4352

great program that is working brilliantly for my tv channels (I'm sky UK), but why doesn't it pickup EPG data for radio channels?  Is this not possible?

Thanks

Looking thru a log I had from a UK Sky collection all the radio stations I could see were listed as no data so there is no EPG broadcast for them.

Same here in NZ.

Hello all

I've got EPG Collector correctly obtaining an XML file from Sky UK and I'm popuilating Media Center via TVSource. All the data seems to come into MC OK but the issue I have is that in Media Center's Movie Browser, non of the extra movie metadata is populated for movie details obtained via XML - ie no cover art, actors, review etc. It obviously knows they are movies as they appear in Movie Browser.  My system gets all this info fine for movies on channels that are obtained by my normal DVB-T feed so the mechanism works - just not for the XML obtained by EPG Collector. (Previous to using EPG Collector, I was using another method to get the XML for Sky and with this, the metadata was looked up ok.) Anyone in the UK getting a fully populated movie browser with EPG Collector?

Thanks

TerminalMan: Hello all

I've got EPG Collector correctly obtaining an XML file from Sky UK and I'm popuilating Media Center via TVSource. All the data seems to come into MC OK but the issue I have is that in Media Center's Movie Browser, non of the extra movie metadata is populated for movie details obtained via XML - ie no cover art, actors, review etc. It obviously knows they are movies as they appear in Movie Browser.  My system gets all this info fine for movies on channels that are obtained by my normal DVB-T feed so the mechanism works - just not for the XML obtained by EPG Collector. (Previous to using EPG Collector, I was using another method to get the XML for Sky and with this, the metadata was looked up ok.) Anyone in the UK getting a fully populated movie browser with EPG Collector?

Thanks


Sorry to respond to my own post but I realised I meant Movie Guide (built into Media Center) - not Movie Browser which I believe is a 3rd party tool!

Media Center needs a 'date' tag in the EPG data before it will go and look up a movie and then show the extra metadata.

Unfortunately the data from the Sky stream doesn't appear to provide the movie release date other than (usually) somewhere in the program description (or maybe Steve doesn't save it to the XML data?). I've manually added a date tag to a few movies before importing it into MC and confirmed that the extra metadata appears.

The Collector does do some editing on the program description for OpenTV, especially for the NZ broadcast. The format of the title and description is different for each location (NZL, AUS, GBR).

If you want to see the unedited data add Debug:LOGTITLES,LOGDESCRIPTIONS to the ini file. This will create EPG Titles.log and EPG Descriptions.log. These files are much easier to read than the xmltv file.

I'm quite happy to put in more editing of the titles and descriptions if it will help. As the Location parameter is mandatory for OpenTV the editing can be specific to a location.

Take a look at the data and let me know if you would like any changes.

Steve
