@margro - I'm using your 25/03 build (Eden build) with MP v1.2.3 TV server. All good, nice and stable. My local DVB-T multiplex has 8 TV channels and 10 radio channels. However, I'm having a problem when I set a record timer on a radio programme from the EPG. The timer is set up and accepted by the MP TV server correctly and the programme records ok. But the timer entry never shows up in the list in XBMC. Timer entries for TV shows are displayed correctly. I think the problem is related to the relative channel number handling. TV channels are number 1 - 8 in the XBMC channel manager (and in MP TV server). The radio channels in MP TV server seem to continue on as 9 -18 (although the actual DVB channel numbers are 200 -209). Radio channels in the XBMC channel manager are displayed as 1 -10. When I try to schedule a radio recording XBMC seems to identify the relative channel number (12) correctly and channel name when generating the call to the MP plugin and MP adds the event to its schedule correctly. But, when XBMC requests the schedule list back from the MP plugin, it does not seem to be able to relate the channel number (12) to anything properly. The snip from the XBMC log is pasted below:

I also have a query as to why the timestamps in the requests are being marked with "Z" - for example "2012-04-18 17:45:00Z". To my mind, "Z" denotes in military terms Zulu time, which is another term for UTC. The times are local and not UTC. It would probably be better to drop the "Z". I have another issue as regards why all the recordings are being marked "manual", but this may be an issue with MP v1.2.3 - it certainly did not happen before. The recordings were all named correctly in the XBMC database before this, but now every recording is marked "manual" and has the word "manual" prefixed to the filename when generated by the MP TV server.

Will check this. I need to upgrade my TVServer first.

With respect to the "Z". I'm ignoring this. It is only generated when converting a DateTime value to a string in .NET.

Ok ta - the "z" thing is only an anomaly - confuding, but not an actual error.
