I have a Winfast DVT Dongle Dual which comes with its own EPG guide but I am wanting to have the EPG Collector load the guide into it instead. Is this achievable and if so how is it done?

I was successful in loading the collector's EPG into Windows Media Centre 8 and it works a treat.

Hi. I view the epg through a pc connected to a Panasonic TV and I successfully set up the epg connector to load the guide into windows media center but I now want to know how to get the guide in the dongle dual program to update from the epg connector supplied guide update.

What I mean is what software do you use to view the EPG?

It's likely that if you are using Winfast software it will use a custom EPG database/file and it won't be possible to get the output of EPG Collector in to it.

That's what I suspected might be the case SJB. I was hoping that there was a way of updating the Winfast epg with data from the xml file from epg collector. I will have to see if service@leadtek.comCan provide me with a solution. Thanks anyway.
