Version 1.9.0.0 has just been released.

Needs to be tested with GB-PVR with the -all to check it works. I've done some basic test and it appears to work.

I have also added a new feature for Mediaportal TV Server. If you're using SQL Server as the database my program can now check where the EPG file should be placed (i.e. you can now configure it be to somewhere other than the Tv server folder).
Iust add the command -SQL to the end of the command (see mediaportalTvServerSQL.bat for an example)

Thanks for the prompt work!

I've been trying it on RC1 64-bit with GB-PVR;
and it errors, demanding a 'time'

Logfile:
16/05/2009 5:51:29 p.m. Checking for newer version
16/05/2009 5:51:30 p.m. You already have the latest version

16/05/2009 5:51:30 p.m. Task scheduled, now closing

Then when I add 09:00:00 to UpdateEPG.bat, it claims it's an invalid time, or crashes.

Any thoughts? (Am I doing something wrong?)

Looks like a bug, something to do with trying to add a scheduled task, but cant see why that would be.

Are you trying to schedule a task?

RC1 is that Windows 7 RC1?
If so might there might have been a change in the command line.
If you are trying to run just the program ill have a look.

paste the contents of the UpdateEPG.bat you are using

OK. Looks like it is my bad.

I had tried
freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task -all
(demands an runtime argument)
freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task 09:00:00 -all
(crashes)
And I just tried
freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -all
And it works [:)]

Sorry for wasting your time. However, I guess there will be others like me who will mess this up, so might be good to make it clear in the instructons at some point.

Thanks again! This is brilliant.

Glad to see you figured it out.

the command freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task 09:00:00 -all shouldn;t cause my program to crash (doesnt for me. it will create a usless task but shouldnt crash. What verion of Windows are you using? and have you disabled UAC?

but you shouldn't need a task set up:
http://mentalindustries.orconhosting.net.nz/epgFiles/schtasks.html
GB-PVR No task scheduling is required for this as long as you put the UpdateEPG.bat in the GB-PVR directory.

Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to set a task up. That was the output above produced by
freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task -all
Where it requested a runtime, and made comment about a scheduled task. I wasn't trying to set a task up, I just wasn't clear for GB-PVR that I needed only the -all argument (instructions which would be best on the GB-PVR page, because there is no need to schedule a task)

freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task 09:00:00 -all
produced a little disk activity, a small 'ding', nothing added to the log, and it continued to show in the process list. I've now worked out that the crash occurred when I tried again, and the process was still running.

FYI Windows 7 RC1 64-bit. UAC is turned off.

Hope that clarifies. Thanks again. It's really fantastic having it working.

Thanks for your feedback limegreen,
I have updated the GB-PVR page on my website to reflect the recent changes and point out the -task is not needed.

I'm not too sure what happened during the
freeviewNZ-EPG-GBPVR.exe -task 09:00:00 -all it should have worked just created a useless task.

Hey mentalinc

Can you add the Freeview DVB-T Chinese Channel (CCTV8)

The epg information is available from http://xmltv.co.nz/
Under Freeview Tab -> Special Interest -> CCTV8

If this is in fact possible, it would be nice to have the TV Central channel details as well for Waikato/BOP viewers. Also on the FreeView tab.

Cheers.

I have no control over the xml file.

I will however look at adding the website you linked as an alternative download location.

Stay tuned for an update in the next few weeks supporting this.

The internet was not working for you attilathegorilla

The errors occur at points in the program when it should connect to the internet, for example the version check and again when downloading the EPG. If you have recently installed a firewall make sure my program can connect to the internet.

Hmmm I`ve got my software firewall disabled for testing and still no go. Would my ISP have done something to block this traffic? Doesn`t sound likely.
