Better Over the air EPG support

Please please can we have better support for over the air EPG? It would go a long way to transforming the VBox from a Geeky, difficult to set up and use box to a proper consumer device that just works when you power it on and run through the quick setup. For me in particular it affects the UK Freevi...

Re: Improve the Recordings options

Thanks. Yes, sounds like you must be right about the tag. When you say a tag that broadcasters use, do you mean in the broadcasters' over the air (OTA) EPG or does this information get through to the XMLTV guides too? I have always used OTA EPG in the past (with MythTV) and not encountered this issu...

Re: Manual record programmation and power management

Quick questn on the power management: Is it safe to pull the plug on the Vbox at night without shutting it down from the browser setup screen? I want to switch it off at night but at the monent the only way to automate this would be to connect a timer switch to the power socket and set this to turn ...

Improve the Recordings options

At the moment: It is hard to find a programme that you want to record. You have to scroll through the guide and try to spot things to record. Please can we have a search facility? Series recordings: I set up a couple of these recently. The series have now finished but the Vbox continues to record th...

Re: Quick Guide for V@Box with Mythtv

Hi Mike, Thanks for all the info. I was a little worried about using 0.29 because of the warnings on the ppa site but it doesn't sound quite so scary after your comments! I'll try it out on a test box in the next few days before subjecting the family to it and I'll report back here. Incidentally, I'...

System hangs

Twice this evening my browser has hung when attempting to browse the channel listing in LiveTV. When I then navigate to the System page at the top of the menu I am greeted with a message to say that I need to start the Quick Setup Wizard again. I have powered off the Vbox and then restarted it and g...

Re: Quick Guide for V@Box with Mythtv

Hi, Thanks for the useful guide. Got it set up and was wondering why I get scheduling conflicts for my upcoming recordings. Whenever I change the Max Recordings to 5 it changes back to 1 for each tuner. I've got a 3442 Vbox (firmware 2.57) and have been using MythTV for 10 years (but always the vers...

Re: Trying to register product

Confirmed - an alternative email address works OK.

Don't want to include my addresses here so will email them direct.
