Giggles has had it working on Vista and W7 (32 bit and 64 bit). I'm just waiting for Rusty to check out it works on a non-development machine.

Giggles is going to take over the code base and I believe he plans to make it open source.

He's away until the 20th though.

The first tryout version of the EPG Collector is available for download on Sourceforge. It is in the form of a Windows Installer package.

It is a command line utility designed for running overnight to collect EIT or MHEG5 data and create an XMLTV format file. it has been briefly tested on XP/Vista/W7 (32 and 64 bit) for both DVB-S and T.

It has not been seen to work with a hybrid card (HVR 3000) so if someone could try it again it would be appreciated. Don't expect too much though.

Typical run times are as follows:

Freeview MHEG - 40 secs
Freeview EIT - 1 min
Sky EIT - 6 min.

The code will be open source in in the very near future.

All feedback appreciated. I've got a thick skin so criticise away.

Hi Guys, SJB and I have been collaborating and are working on a single codebase, so please refer to his thread from now on: 'MHEG5 EPG Data Grabber'
