Hi all!

I think I noticed something interesting when the new 1.1.0 RC4 is loading the tvguide.xml file, can someone else please test this and reply?

Do this:
- place a tvguide.xml file somewehere let's say containing TV1 and TV2 schedule then point MP to it (in config) and load the file. Launch MP and the "Tv Guide" screen will show only the shows for TV1 and TV2 because that's all what the tvguide.xml contains, correct?

- then create another tvguide.xml let's say for TV3, put it SOMEWHERE ELSE, re-configure MP for the new location of tvguide.xml, load this file, then launch MP.

I expected MP to show only TV3 this time but surprise: it shows all three channels.

it is like the new RC4 creates a copy of the tvguide.xml and compares this with the new tvguide.xml everytime when it is asked to load the new epg. If there is new data then IT IS ADDED. The channels with no data in the new tvguide remain unaffected.

I believe that before ( the new tvguide was loaded REPLACING the old tvguide.

Does this sound right? Can anyone please confirm this behaviour? there is no drawback, just curious if MP acted like this from the beginning or it is a new feature.

It doesnt automatically clear out the old guide data from memory - I think there is a setting to delete old data when loading a new guide. Is that what you were meaning or are you meaning it's loading data from multiple files each time? If the latter try deleting all the guide data for starters, load the TV1/2 one, edit the guide and change a few show names around then import the TV3 one and see if it updates the TV1/2 stuff as well.

Not at home atm to test it - will give it a shot if I remember tonight :)
