    Put that one on before and i then had problems with my hdd recordable device, it wouldnt record any more and it gave me the message NO SPACE LEFT ON DEVICE , i knew there was still plenty, its 1TB and not a lot of content on it. I spent a few days trying to fix it ,but ended up saving a few of the recordings onto a laptop, then initialising the device again, then putting the recordings back on, i know i probaly have done something wrong in the first place, when installing the epg, but i couldnt figure out what, thanks pablo.

    if you remove the usb you use for recording, then download the epg to the box, then put the usb drive back in.
    it sounds like you are putting the epg on the usb for some reason

    hi
    Can someone pls confirm the number of events they receive when they perform an EPG import - I’m getting around 90k events is this about right?
    There’s quite a few channels that don’t appear to have epg so just want to check?
    Thanks

    you won't get epg for discontinued channels, motorsport.tv seems to have been dropped recently, also Disney XD+1

    It depends on how you set your s.t.b
    Going through the se up process if
    You selected free sat only then the
    E.p.g importer will not cover all channels If the e.p.g guide works for
    V.od which depends on your provider
    it could load up to 130k

    in epg importer, you need to press blue button for epg sources, choose rytec sky/virgin xmltv
    then exit once
    then press yellow to download the epg

    Leave your box on vigin events in setup epg enable virgin epg i set a timer to zap to virgin at 2.00am it the populates the epg job done
    No need for epg refresh rytec or anything else. Using h2h Atv 6.1 6.2 will work also
