Hi guys im haveing real trouble getting Big screen EPG to work and put data into the Win7 guide any help would be great.

Im running a PVR150 with the sky box comeing in via the Svideo and have done a scan and set it all up in Win7 Media center in the guide I get no channel names but the cannels are in there correct order within the guide. So I rename channel 1 to TV One, I then set up BSEPG to use the Haventech feed and followed the on screen instructions i told it not to use all the channels as i wanted to test to see if I could get TV One data in the guide first, once this is all under the channels tab I tick the channel with the same name as I set up in Win7 Guide (TV One) and did the import part of BSEPG and I get a success and it told me it did just 1 channel, now when I go back to the Win7 Guide there is still no data. I have also tried this for Prime and didnt get any thing.

I know I have to match the channel names that show up in BSEPG with a channel name in the Win7 Guide so that means renaming the channels in the guide but thats all I can see that I have to do.

I also have a HVR2200 in the media center but I havent told it to scan any channels from that yet as I didnt want to get to confused with what channels were what i just want to get Sky channles set up with a EPG first.

Can any one tell me what im doing wrong.

Cheers Hotdognz
