Hello, I am very much a newbie to both this forum and to HTPC building. I have built a HTPC and it is near perfect, except for the EPG of course. I am very sorry and apologise if I am asking a question that has been asked before. I have a Hauppage -HVR-2200 dvb-t PCI-E and it does a fantastic job of receiving freeview via WMC. I have Big Screen EPG installed and I have started running through the set up but I am not sure of what to do with the HTML provider. I am in Cambridge in the Waikato. What do I need to do to complete the set up. I have my HTPC set to wake from sS to record and then go back to S3, it is running win 7. Best regards Alastair.

Never heard of big EPG.

EPG Collector works brilliantly though.

Forget Big Screen EPG, go get EPG Collector. It is free, developed in New Zealand by Geekzone users, with local support.

I use both Bigscreen EPG and EPG Collector together.  I forget what, but there were some things that BSEPG did that EPGCollector by itself did not.  Perhaps it was the tv series logos in the guide, not sure.  You need EPG Collector though, BSEPG by itself isn't sufficient..
