Just sort of jumping in on the band wagon here. Its taken me til tonight to realise the EPG isnt up and running anymore and obviously this post has been discussing why.
I did find here on geek zone some one had mention Freeview supply the guided information. But it needed to be transfered into an xml file.
Well I wished I could remember where this info was posted, but any way they also mentioned a programe they used to do the conversion. Well I down loaded the program ant ir dosw work well. It downloads the file an names it freeview.xml. I found in the config I could tell it to rename the file as tvguide.xml which is great.
I've dumped the programme into my medai portal tv server folder and set up a schedule for it to run every day. So far so good. Excuse the ramblings as a couple of beverages may blurred some of the finer points but hopefully what I've found will help others.
