I'm not using schedules direct right now I'm using "Microsoft" but I have noticed you get better details with SD than microsoft.

Yes that will work. Now the disappointment that you are stuck with the pre-programmed genres. Confused

I am still missing a couple but here is mine.

Add don't forget you can map more than one genre mapped to the same pre-programmed one. for example you can have this:

<genre lang="en" type="0x40" subtype="0x00">golf</genre>
<genre lang="en" type="0x40" subtype="0x00">tennis</genre>

OK, I do see some better results but with golf and tennis, I'm getting nothing.
Also, if you want Football to say football in the guide and not "Team sport" or just Sports, how do you make this happen?
Currently I get "Team Sport"

That is what I meant by now being disappointed with only having the pre-programmed genres.

In other words, the colors are directly attached to the pre-programmed genre labels... if you want to use them, your stuck with the genre names that are attached.

I didn't have golf or tennis in my genre_translation.xml, so unless you added them they still wont be working.

OK that makes sense and yes I did add tennis and golf but nothing changes. I've also noticed I have a few things listed as "General" like different news shows.

So I can't link them to any particular genre because there are too many different show types with "General"

But what I have after using your genre_translation.xml file as a starting point I'm happy with it.

I appreciate it.

Strange, I don't remember any General ones... Did you go back to Schedules Direct? Reset the MePo EPG? and reset XBMC PVR database?

Yes I've reset both. I have not decided to go back to SD yet but I will today or tomorrow.
