Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Thanks for your help. I will live with the channel matching for the moment and contact Vbox support. I naively assumed that Vbox support would read this forum and offer their help directly to the customer via the forum. Can we ssh to the Vbox and set up an XMLTV solution on it or does it have to be ...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

I can't agree with you there. How can you say it's not a Vbox issue?? I've just bought a Vbox and now it's an issue! And the guide works fine on my 15 month old TV so it obviously can work if the suppliers are willing to work on it. I bought the Vbox on the strength of the advertising. For example a...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Hi again. Ignch , thanks for the info on the power switch and the offer to help. However as emaherx says (and my experience with my TVs, MythTV, TVheadend, etc shows), the guide data for all Freeview channels should just work. What I have noticed is that for my transmitter (Ridge Hill), most of the ...

EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Wow, the article at http://community.vboxcomm.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=20 says " We're developing the VBox with the intention of simplifying home TV setup ".... The setup is anything but simple.
