Where is Backup?

#1

Post by techmattr » Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:41 pm

I'm trying to transfer all my recordings to a new WMC instance. I open EPG123 Client Guide Tool. I click Backup under Database Utilities. Hourglass(circle) appears for about 4 - 5 minutes then goes away. No message. Cannot find any backed up data.

In the [epg123]\backup folder there is a zip file named with the date and timestamp of when you made the backup. Take that zip file to your destination machine and use the Transfer Tool to open it. All your recording requests will be there and can be transferred into the new WMC database using the [>>>] button.

Thanks! Looks like that worked.

It doesn't look like the guide is updating though. I have 43 channels assigned, but 1000+ channels are still showing up with no guide data. Looks like everything is updating as it should? The guide just isn't updating. I did decline the WMC guide so it shouldn't be getting overwritten. Should I start over and just import the recording schedule from the old server instead of the entire zip?

Code: Select all

That's good because that is what I was going to tell you to do. The screenshot you posted shows that you are setup with MS/Rovi guide (23 lineups, 8040 services, and only 791 merged channels). Also, the no data available is you having no data from MS/Rovi ... not EPG123.

Glad you got it up and running!

Yeah I read your previous reply too quickly and imported the entire backup from my other server which screwed some things up. Went back to square 1, followed the guide and used just the recordings backup and everything is good now. Thanks again!
