I have an HVR-2200 TV card for Freeview HD on my HTPC, but I also have Prime tuned in on the analogue tuner.

I (and some others) are trying to get the Prime program listings to appear in MediaPortal without any luck.  I'm using freeviewNZ_EPG_GBPVR program with the -all option which is downloading and importing data for 112 channels, but nothing appears for Prime.

I noticed in the XMLTV plugin mappings in the TV server that the ID for Prime is 31, so I entered 31 into the Channel field for Prime, but this doesn't work.  I'm guessing there is no ID for analogue channels, is that correct?

Is there a way to get this working?

Thanks.

I am using that same guide data, it definitely has Prime.

So to clarify, you have got Prime tuned in (i.e. you can watch it) but have no guide data? When you setup XMLTV in TV-Server, did you go into the 'Mappings' tab? There you should see the tuned-in chanel 'Prime', and in the drop down box (amongst the other 111 channels) there will be a 'prime.sky.co.nz'. If you select that, make sure everything else is properly mapped, and hit save you should be good to go.

Yes that is correct.  I checked the mapping before my post and it looks correct.  It does have Prime with prime.sky.co.nz.  However, the next box is green rather than white.  It says White = mapped and Green = exact match.

It doesn't show the 112 channels in this area, only the dozen or so Freeview HD digital channels and the Prime analog channel.

The problem appears to be the green colour rather than white.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

Nevermind, it's fixed Smile.  After searching and reading other forums for some time I found a reference to clicking Save in the mappings area.  Then the green area turned white.  For some reason this still didn't work initially.  I re-imported the xml file, but nothing.  Restarted TV server service and MP, nothing.  Rebooted the PC and imported the XML file again and now it works!

I'm a happy chappy, except for the occasional MP crash when changing channels between Prime and the freeview digital channels.

Cheers.
