Well either the dish has moved, the satellite finder is stuffed, tuner has died or the LNB is shagged. Either way I'm all out of EPG.
Would some kind soul be able to PM me with a URL for an XMLTV guide for Sky and Freeview data?
I'm usually self-sufficient with EPG Collector and DVB-S EIT, but suffering big time.

Thanks Heaps!

if you cant collect EPG over the satellite cause tuner/lnb/alignment is broken, then surely you cant watch anything...?

if you're not actually using satellite for tuning but are using DVB-T instead, why not just use EPGcollector with the DVB-T feed?

Mystery solved, the tuner is at fault. Manual guide data capture on the gaming computer with Nova-S until I can get a new USB tuner :(
