hi, I'm trying to setup EPG collector for NZ freeview DVB-T using a Kworld DVB-T stick running windows 7 x64, my config file looks like this:

[GENERAL] Output=C:\ProgramData\Geekzone\EPG Collector\TVGuide.xml Timeouts=10,300,5 Option=USERAWCRID,USENUMERICCRID,USEIMAGE,WMCIMPORT,USESIGNALPRESENT

[DVBT] TuningFile=New Zealand.Rotorua - Pukepoto.xml ScanningFrequency=698000,8,MHEG5
[DVBT] TuningFile=New Zealand.Rotorua - Pukepoto.xml ScanningFrequency=746000,8,MHEG5
[DVBT] TuningFile=New Zealand.Rotorua - Pukepoto.xml ScanningFrequency=762000,8,MHEG5
[DVBT] TuningFile=New Zealand.Rotorua - Pukepoto.xml ScanningFrequency=794000,8,MHEG5

and this is the output I get:

If the signal is up then I think your frequencies are wrong. I was just helping someone out over at the MediaPortal forum and he found the signal today at 554, 586 and 602 MHz rather than the 698, 746, 762 and 794 MHz that you're trying with...

Those frequencies worked great, after a little fiddling in media centre I got the guide fully working.
