Hi,

I had this working fine in Mediaportal TV Server.

I re-installed mediaportal and have somehow stuffed up the setup of the EPG downloader.

When I run mediaportalTvServer.bat the EPG downloads to:  "c:\Documents and Settings\%username%\"

I've tried deleting all the epg files but the settings must be held in the registry?


How do I scrap the settings and start again so it downloads the EPG into the tv server folder?

thanks

Have you upgraded to mediaportal 1.0 final TV SERVER?
or are you now using regular mediaportal without the tv server - If this is the case you are using the wrong .bat file.

if you have upgraded to the 1.0 Final and it stopped working I may need to change my program to work with the final release.

Hi

I was running tv server 1 final and the EPG downloader was working fine. I uninstalled it due to some tuning problems.

When I uninstalled it, it  totally removed the tvserver folder so I lost your epg downloader.

I reinstalled exactly the same version of tv server.

I think I may have done something stupid like run the bat file from the ZIP archive first by accident.

Open the registry
Start - Run - "regedit"

and browse to
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\MediaPortal TV Server\
what is the value of "InstallPath"

DO NOT CHANGE OR DELETE ANYTHING IN THE REGISTRY!!

As it should be:

C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server

I have no idea why it is being downloaded to documents and settings then.
That location is not even part of my code.

Is there anyway to force a download path for tv server? Kind of like how you specify a path for dvbviewer?

astrae: Is there anyway to force a download path for tv server? Kind of like how you specify a path for dvbviewer?


Just use the dvdviewer command and point it to the tvserver path. this is not the ideal way to solve it but it should work.

I've worked out what went wrong.

The first time I ran freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe I opened a command prompt from the start menu.

The current path was "C:\Documents and Settings\username"

From an explorer window I dragged the bat file to the command prompt and ran it.  It then downloaded the epg to the root folder of my username in documents and settings.  Everytime the scheduler ran it seemed to download to the same location.

I deleted the xml & gz files from documents and settings and also from the tvserver folder.

I then just ran the bat file by double clicking on it in the tv server folder.

All is ok now.

Thanks for you help, excellent program.

Hi - there seems to be a problem with the version 1.8 downloader for GB-PVR(v 1.3.11) users during setup - or at least with the instructions for installation: http://mentalindustries.orconhosting.net.nz/epgFiles/GB-PVR.html

With the version 1.8 download contents extracted into GB-PVR directory, while following the instructions for using the GB-PVR config utility to set up capture sources XMLTVplugin settings, it is in fact impossible to browse to the path where the xmlEPG file will be stored as instructed - because neither xml file or folder exist yet to be browsed to.

Manually creating this folder & making a file of the correct name "EPGdata.xml" in location shown  then trying again to browse to it allows GB-PVR config utility to proceed - however subsequently clicking update epg from GB-PVR tray icon as instucted results in no EPG data being downloaded (schedule is empty)

Are these instructions correct and complete as written ?

Cheers
Paul

Hey Paul

My understanding is GB-PVR can now download the file itsself so you no longer need to use my application.

Thanks

Hmm - this would be an intersting development - but there doesnt seem to be any other way to make GB-PVR download EPG - Am I missing something?

Cheers

You do realise there is no need to use any external programs to get a Freeview EPG in the latest version of GB-PVR?

Where you have the XML file option just enter the http address of the epg.pvr.geek.nz file (http://epg.pvr.geek.nz/epg/freeview-web.xml.gz) and GB-PVR will download this daily and update your EPG.

Thanks for that! - I wish it had been explicitly identified as an option in the GB-PVR config utility! (the dialoge for selecting XMLTV file lists only an option to browse path to local files)

Cheers
