How to stop auto update

#1

My Schedules Direct subscription expired. How do I stop EPG from connecting? Client and EPG.exe update functions appear grayed out. Clicking delete button doesn't allow to uncheck auto update (full mode).

Delete or disable the scheduled task.

The full mode radio button and the client mode radio button combined are a toggle switch. There will always be 1 of those selected. To stop the automatic updates for EPG123, simply delete the task. You will see something to the effect that no tasks are active.

You're referring to epg123task.xml? Clicking the 'delete' button in the client is somewhat counter intuitive as it suggests it's deleting the task as the button is enabled and located next to the task.

Nice, that's what I'll do.
