After a break of a few years i'm rebuilding my Media Portal Server. I had to upgrade from windows 7 to 10 and started with a fresh install.


I used to use EPG Collector. Is this still best practice pulling down DVB-T Freeview EPG data?


Cheers, Geoff.

My Nextpvr system is still happily using that, pulling from DVB-T.  Any other solution is prone to disappearing

You'll still need to use EPG Collector.  Unless you switch to MP2 which supports the guide natively.  I had extremely mixed feelings about MP2 though when I last used it - too many problems for it to be my every day runner.
