[OLD/CLOSED] PseudoTV Live - Set-Top box solution

I'm having trouble getting the LiveTV up and running. I am running v12, Windows 7 with a connected HDHomeRun (non-prime verison). I setup the tuner and grabbed the strm files and the homerun:// addresses. I have created an XMLTV file with a size of < 2mb and 3 days of data with MC2XML. Looking into the debug logs of XBMC it seems that PTVL is reading the xmltv file correctly but it doesn't populate anything into the .m3u playlist and it throws an error and causes PTVL to ignore the channel.

"10:46:49 T:9316 ERROR: Unable to get information about channel "

This has been driving me crazy because I believe everything is set correctly.

XBMC Debug log (grabbed only after PTVL loaded) :


    <setting id="Channel_1_type" value="8" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_1" value="" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_2" value="hdhomerun://103BB165-1/tuner1?channel=8vsb:207000000&program=1" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_3" value="xmltv" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_rulecount" value="1" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_changed" value="True" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_time" value="0" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_rule_1_id" value="1" />
    <setting id="Channel_1_rule_1_opt_1" value="CBS Live" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_type" value="6" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_1" value="The Office (US)" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_2" value="1" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_3" value="50" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_rulecount" value="1" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_rule_1_id" value="1" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_rule_1_opt_1" value="The Office" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_changed" value="False" />
    <setting id="LastResetTime" value="1386175609" />
    <setting id="Channel_2_time" value="0" />
    <setting id="LastExitTime" value="1386174835" />

Got it. Since I saw the [OLD] next to most of the shows I dug into the xmltv and saw it was pulling in shows that had already past based on my mc2xml input. Minor EPG issue now but finally got it working.
