Only getting 24 hour epg on Virmin but 7 day epg on satellite??

    Well, as the title says.....

    I've got a temporary set up on my vu+ duo2 box ready for when we move house.....soon!

    The cable side works perfectly, got all channels, perfect snr/agc with no glithces whatsoever.

    Only problem is the epg only shows 1 day of programs on the Virmin lists. And yet the satellite list shows the full week ahead!!

    I use Crossepg Downloader for my epg and have never had a problem otherwise. Is there a setting I am supposed to change to get a 7 day epg for cable? Or a separate plugin that does the job other than crossepg?

    Cheers guys.

    I would recommend EPG Refresh and set it to VM Preview channel for 120 seconds (2 minutes). It will populate your EPG with 5 days worth of information.

    OK I'll give that a go. It's that instead of cross epg or alongside it?

    Use EPG Importer instead of CrossEPG - enable rytec and VM UK services and also add jenseneverest Virmin sources too and you'll be good to go :)

    I only use crossepg for my Irish vermin and remaining sly channels and the vermin epg lasts 5 days and sly ones last 7 days, was it always like that or only recently
