First let me say what a tremendous job you have done on this and I am really looking forward to using it but I am hoping you can help me with a problem I am having with trying to set up my live tv with my HDHomerun Dual Tuner. When I first launched PTVL it added the 4 streaming stations and works great. I then added a number of custom playlists which also works great. I am now trying to add my live tv channels as per your example on page 1 however I run into the blank page issue. I have followed the example and read through this entire post at least a half dozen times trying to compare examples and my syntax appears good but I still am unable to get past the blank screen when I try to add a channel. Here is what I am adding to my setting2.xml file:

<setting id="Channel_20_type" value="8" />
<setting id="Channel_20_1" value="" />
<setting id="Channel_20_2" value="hdhomerun://103AC965-0/tuner0?channel=8vsb:587000000&program=1" />
<setting id="Channel_20_3" value="xmltv" />
<setting id="Channel_20_rulecount" value="1" />
<setting id="Channel_20_changed" value="True" />
<setting id="Channel_20_time" value="0" />
<setting id="Channel_20_rule_1_id" value="1" />
<setting id="Channel_20_rule_1_opt_1" value="WCBSDT" />

The channel id for the epg is correct as is the 587000000&program=1. The remainder of lines are just a copy of your example. The xmltv.xml file is located in my /storage folder which I added to the settings and is in the "ISO-8859-1" format. I appreciate any debugging help you can provide. I have included my settings2.xml and xbmc.log files below. <- setting2.xml file <- log file


I appreciate all the info and logs!!, very helpful... but are you sure you're running the latest master?
Try deleting the files in, then moving the new files over.

Because the log looks outdated? and try enabling debugging for your logs and repost with new information, So I can get a detailed look at the problem...

I downloaded the latest master and reinstalled it (still shows as version 0.1.9) after deleting all the files in I turned on the debugging and started up PTVL. It created the four channels again as expected and worked fine. I then added just the Channel 20 settings from above and restarted but unfortunately it went right back to a black screen.
Thanks for your help!

On a side note I am unable to enter into the Channel configuration within settings, I get a script error. <-with Debugging on
