New to XBMC and PVR - EPG Question Windows 7
Hey everyone. So, just as a starter I'm new to both XBMC and Media Computers in general. I did some googling but an hour or so of research couldn't find me what I'm looking for.


Windows 7 64 Bit / HVR -1600 TV Tuner / XBMC PVR Version (Not sure which one I can dig it up if needed)/ MediaPortal Server as the backend

The problem:

I got tv working fine inside XBMC which was awesome. I'm thrilled with how the program is running, but I can't seem to get EPG info. I feel like it's mainly an issue of me not knowing what the hell I'm doing though. Do I need to enable it somewhere?


I'm getting lower quality than expected. My tuner claims 1080p. I know that's not what I'm seeing on the computer. Thoughts?

Thanks a bundle for any time you can give to help me. I'll check back as often as I can.
Did you configure the MediaPortal tv server for EPG?

See the MediaPortal TVServer configuration pages on their wiki.

About the "lower quality": try enabling "deinterlacing" under "Video settings" (while playing TV)

Yes I have configured the EPG for MediaPortal TV. I'm still getting "No Data Available" on the TV Guide. If it helps any, I have optimum as my cable provider and the tv is going straight from the wall to my computer
I'm afraid MP might not support EPG over ATSC.

Maybe you will have better luck with as backend, I have no idea if it support ATSC EPG though.
Thanks! I'll look into it
