Has anyone managed to get hold of the beta? Specifically version 0.3 ?

Sexual favours given if someone has it and wants to lend me a copy :)

For those of you who don't know it's a working third party plug-in for 7MC EPG. And it works well.

Send Niall a PM and he'll send you the beta link - make sure you fill in the details he asks for so he can track beta usage.

He sends a special request for people not to distribute the software, and given the hard work and effort he's putting in to get this going i'd be surprised if anyone will go against his request.

It took about 2 days before I got my link sent to me from the time I PM'd him, but that was near the weekend so if you get in fast it might come soon!

Took about a week for me to get the link sent.

Well worth the wait

It took about 2 hours this morning to get my link from him.  Haven't tried it yet but will do so when I can get near the HTPC...

Hi guys,

Yes - please goto the link above - fill in the form and pm to me (via

I normally collate the Beta Requests once a day - so it shouldn't take long to receive your invite (it's a bit of messing around with copy/pasting the emails - so I do a few at once rather than send an invite as each PM comes though).

I unfortunately had to make new beta ppl wait most of last week for v0.3 as I hadn't updated the docs (wasn't ready until Saturday) - and anyone not coming from setting up with the v0.2 release would have been quite confused with only the old docs (as UI had completely changed).

Anyhow good news is that all( or at least most?) of the issues for NZ users with using BSE (and different setups like STB's etc) seems to have been sorted - so setting up should be a lot easier now if you're new to using it.
