Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to get the EPG working on EyeTV in NZ? I am running EyeTV Hybrid V2.5.2 (3304) but willing to upgrade to v3 if it would make a difference on an Intel Imac OS X v.10.4.11.

Have been reading about XMLTV but not sure what this is or how to get it and make it work?

Also, with the EyeTV upgrade is it possible to receive freeview channels without using a freeview box or do I still have to buy a freeview receiver?

Thanks

With the latest version of eyetv, all you need to have is a DTT tv tuner. No freeview set top box required.

XMLTV is a script that downloads an EPG. In one of the threads, someone linked to the file. Download that, run it, then in eyetv set the channels epg to xmltv.

Thanks for replying!!!

Does this work in EyeTV v 2.5.2? I have ran the script and it says 'true' under result, then quit and reopened EyeTV gone to channels and in the drop down menu under EPG tried to slect xmltv but comes up with nothing. Also, what is a DTT tv tuner? Sorry am a bit of a novice with this...

You'll be needing 3.0.2 if you want to view Freeview here in NZ. Luckily you have the eyetv hybrid, which is a DTT tuner aswell! I think they only recently added support for xmltv in version 3.

Sorry, have got one last question for you.  I have now upgraded to EyeTV v 3 and have installed all the digital channels and run the xmltv script.  When I go in to change the individual channels epg (in the epg column in channels) the xmltv option is there but when i click on it it comes up with a box saying 'please select an epg channel for...' there are no options in the box to select... what do I do??

Thanks!
