There are quite a few feature of EPG123 that don't appear to be properly documented (they are described in various posts here in the forum, but not all in one place). I wonder if anyone has created a consolidated list of all these features, or is interested in doing so?

There are a few features that I'm sure I've forgotten about (even some of them ones I suggested!) and it would be good to have these documented all in one place.

For instance, in addition to the "dummy station" feature recently described in this thread, how many people use the "series premiere" feature of EPG123 to find all the new fall season shows premiering in the next couple weeks? Do you know how to access it?

Did you know that when an episode of a series has episode specific information, but no episode title, EPG123 gives it an episode title that matches the name of the series? This makes it easier to tell the difference between an episode that does not have episode specific information (and is therefore being set to record due to this) and those that do. I've found with Gracenote/SchedulesDirect data it is rare for an episode to remain in the guide that does not have episode specific information, but if it does, it's easy for you to see it and cancel the recording (after researching), since most likely it is not a new episode.

There are others, but I would have to think some more to remember them...

I would add to the list of less know features the ability to add VHF stations (that WMC doesn't care about):

Hello,

My Guide data has run out unexpectedly. Based on another post in this thread, I contacted Schedules Direct who confirmed that there was nothing on the server side that would result in an out-of-date MXF file. Here is my email to them and an EPG123 log file from earlier today.
I'm running EPG123 on a Windows Media Center.

My guide data has run out. A review of the EPG123 log file shows that the
MXF file is not being updated. According to a post on the EPG123 page on
The Green Button, this results from the inability of getting an update
from SD. The date stamp on the MXF file is 10/2/2021 12:01 AM.

I have just run a manual update. The EPG123 log file follows. Any light
you can bring to this problem would be most appreciated.

Thank you
and their reply:
Have you posted your full logs to the EPG123 forum? We can't provide application support (we're a data service). There's nothing server-side on your account which would be restricting your download.

First, I would say this was not "unexpected"... epg123 has been giving you an error notification for the last 16 days if you have the notification tray application installed.

Second, I need to see more of your log. What you included is the client importing the mxf file, but not the epg123 program trying to create the mxf file. That will be the entries prior to what you attached.

This also assumes that your scheduled task is setup correctly to be in Full Mode to both create the mxf file and then import it.

I say "unexpectedly" as EPG123 has been running flawlessly for almost two years! I didn't know about the notification tray app, I will look into that stat.

The log file is very long. Where to you want me to start from?

I think just covering the last 2 days should be enough.

Okay, sorry. With version 1.3.6.20 I don't think you would have the notification tray program. I can't remember right off hand when I added that. You should have gotten the logo on the WMC home screen being red, though.

I recommend updating to the latest version which handles this error with GenericSeriesInfoDescriptions as well as give you that notification tray program. After that it should work.

Do I just install the current version over the version I'm running. Will my line-up and other settings be preserved?

Yes. Just install the new version over you existing install and that is it. Nothing more required.

Thanks for making the upgrade so easy. Restarted Windows following the upgrade, then did a "Rebuild WMC Database". The MXF file is still dated 10/2/2021. Here are today's logs.

You didn't need to do a rebuild. You also have not run an update, yet. Open the configuration GUI and click the [Save & Execute] button.

I must have missed this step, thanks for pointing it out. The guide has updated successfully.

I'm saving this thread in case this problem comes up again. Thanks so much for your help.

Hi,

Things have been running flawlessly for a couple of years now, but the past 2 mornings listing updates have failed. The error seems to be "String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.". What in the world?

Sorry. I figured if I let epg123 write a registry value using the operating system's date/time format based on its' settings, that it would be able to read and parse what it wrote without any problems. For the most part that is true, but if you "customize" the date format (short or long) then it has problems.

Update to v1.7.0.8 and delete the registry key/value HKLM\SOFTWARE\GaRyan2\epg123\"tokenExpires". This will allow epg123 to write a more universal date/time format so it shouldn't be an issue after that.

This morning I woke up to a green EPG symbol and the guide is fully up-to-date! Weird. Whatever it was it only happened for 2 days. Hoping it doesn't come back. I didn't make any changes. Since it's working I'll leave the registry alone, but if the issues comes back I'll take your suggestion. (The PC's time format is different (a.m. p.m. vs AM PM), but it's always been like this.)

btw, awesome program Gary! When my old Sony DHG PVR stopped getting guide data, I was really bummed. Then I discovered WMC which was even better! And then..that guide data stopped as well. Many thanks for keeping WMC alive. It's the best PVR out there! Cheers.

Thank you for the recent update. A couple very small items to add to the bottom of your list:
  1. The "balloon" notification that reports that the channel update was successful is still stating that downloads should be obtained at "epg123.garyan2.net/download/" rather than "garyan2.github.io/download.html".
  • The notification at the top of this forum page (EPG 123 Bug Reports) exhibits the same issue; i.e., obtain downloads and docs from "epg123.garyan2.net".

1. The tray notification was updated to point to github in version 1.7.0.0-beta.
2. The epg123.garyan2.net website automatically forwards to the github site, so it is still functional. Sometime before February next year, when my garyan2.net hosting service expires, I will change the domain to point to github as well. At that point, everything will once again be pointing to epg123.garyan2.net.

The "Did not receive a response from Schedules Direct for a token request." error appears also in the Configuration Utility when opening or clicking login. However, I can login to the Schedules Direct web page directly with the same login information so not sure the source of the failure. Please advise.

You can manually run an update by right-clicking the tray icon and select 'Update Guide Now'. It will probably succeed.

If it does succeed, then you need to change your update time. Are you in the U.K., or use GMT time on your computer? In which case, 5AM there is 12AM on the U.S.A. east coast and everyone insists on doing updates at midnight. With that large influx of token requests all at the same time, some don't get a token within 3 seconds of the request and epg123 will abort. On 11/7 the U.S. went to Daylight Savings Time so all the users that were updating at 6AM GMT started updating at 5AM GMT.

Either way, I would still recommend changing your scheduled update time to a bit more random... exactly on the hour, any hour, is not a good idea.
