Get Freeview or Freesat on any device, anywhere

This is your headline for the UK.

Please point me to the setup guides that deliver this.... Obviously these are EPG services, having the channels without the guide is like a toilet without bog roll.

Loved your anecdote :-)
Freesat doesn't provide full over the air EPG .
You have a number of options to overcome this
1. Pair the guide form Freeview to the Freesat channels - if you are willing to get partial guide coverage
2. Add guide from an external guide source - there are a number of free and paid resources available online
- http://www.xmltv.co.uk , http://www.webgrabplus.com , http://www.schedulesdirect.org to name a few
3. Use a 3rd party app to collect the guide like https://sourceforge.net/projects/epgcollector/

This just doesn't work for me e.g. The VBox picks up 'BBC One' whereas all the bloomin XMLTV files reference 'BBC 1'.

One solution of course is to edit the channel names in the admin interface but I reckon it would take all week as the javascript postback fires everytime you touch it. Is there a usable way of achieving this?

Actually I've just noticed that all that postback does is waste time. The changed channel names do no persist.

Thanks for your help. You've got no hope if you can't support someone like me. I'm a systems prog but I just don't have time to deal with this stuff. Hours and hours wasted. Please advertise your product as it really is.
