Love your product.

For the past month, I have been seeing extra channels appearing that are not selected. They are mostly On-Demand channels or premium channels. I am consistently seeing “[ERROR] Failed to perform the automatch of lineup stations to tuner channels task.” in the log. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I have run the update manually, no change.
I have deleted the scheduled task and recreated it, no change.

The new channels are showing up since you have the 'Automatically download new stations in lineups' option enabled. If a new station shows up, the new station will be downloaded until you go into the configuration GUI and unselect the new station and save the configuration.

As far as the automatch errors go, no idea. Have you opened the client GUI? It does some low level repair work if it sees something wrong with your merged channels and will log that in the trace.log. Try the below ... stop whenever error goes away.

1) Open the client and click the [View Log] button. Check for any log entries from opening that points to database errors and if they were fixed.
2) Close the client and open the configuration GUI. Click the [Save & Execute] button.

3) From a command prompt, run "start /wait c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -uf -dbgc". Wait for it to complete
4) Open the configuration GUI. Click the [Save & Execute] button.

5) Using EPG123 Client, click the [Rebuild WMC Database]. You will have to import the guide listings once complete. <= I would almost guarantee this will fix the errors since it deletes your current database and rebuilds it.
6) Open the configuration GUI. Click the [Save & Execute] button.

I'm on Win10x64 and epg123 is installed in a custom location; also the working files/folder are local (from a previous install; and I prefer it that way...);
everything seems to work ok, but the import into Media center is not done because the epg123.mxf does not exist; I tried already a "repair install" but no change.
is there something I can do (e.g. registry...)?
Thanks

The path to the MXF file should be the complete folder path... "C:\Sonderprogramme\epg123\output\epg123.mxf". It appears maybe your 'Start in' folder of the task may not be correct either, otherwise it still should have worked.

I would suggest deleting your current scheduled task and create a new one. Make sure your options to automatically import and automatically match are the same as before.

yes, that was it... although I was under the impression that previous versions of epg123 used in the scheduled task a relative path in respect to the position of epg123Client.exe ...
anyways, it works, thanks!

That was true up until I added the ability to install in Program Files and the data being stored in the ProgramData folder. Now everything should be full path.

Ever since setting up EPG123 I have battled this issue and cannot find a way to resolve nor any helpful information in logs or these forums.

In my DVR recordings everything appears twice. There are not two files. If i delete one the other goes away automatically. But i cannot find a way to resolve this.

Everything else works aside from the automated scheduled task failing each night, but this double recording BS is by far the greater annoyance than manually running the regular tasks.

Latest EPG123 versions.

The recording doubles is not a bug of epg123, rather than something in your WMC setup. Check your registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Recording\WatchedFolders... make sure there is not 2 paths to the same recording folder. I think this can also happen if you have Media Player sharing media and WMC will see it's own recording folder and the media shared by Media Player.

What kind of error(s) do you get with the scheduled task? What is your setup like?

@garyan2
I "discovered" in the MediaCenterTasks that "PVRScheduleTask" shows an error (?) something like "Class not registered...0x80040154" (I think some days ago it was ...D23 ?!); however, the Series recording schedule is updated...
I tried already to register ATL.dll but this did not help;
is this a problem? how to solve it?

(sfc /scan did also not pop up anytjing; I'm on Win10x64 LTSC 1809)

Have not been able to update the program data since a few days ago - WMC never reports that it has finished updating.
Note: the file path for the .mxf file is: C:\epg123\output\epg123.mxf and the file date is 6/27/2019
It has never been: "C:\Sonderprogramme\epg123\output\epg123.mxf"

Note: the WMC guide data and the scheduled programs end 6/30/2019.
Open epg123 v1.2.13 it reports: Schedules Direct Account Expires 7/19/2020 but the view log says: "account expires: 2019-07-19T18:32:50Z"

I get a feeling you're not actually using EPG123 for your guide data. MS/Rovi are having problems right now and their end date appears to be around 6/30.

Interesting about the account expire data... I'll see if I get those dates from 2 different places.

I think you might be missing information from what you tried to paste in the message... note that it is from May.

To change your guide listings without having to start from scratch (Step 1), open the Client GUI...

1. On the left-side table for guide channels, click any channel to highlight it and then press [Ctrl+A] to select all.
2. With all channels highlighted, right-click any one of them and select 'Unsubscribe'. This will remove Rovi as the provider for those channels.
3. Select your EPG123 lineup in the pulldown on the right-side for lineup services.
4. Click the Match by: [# Number] button on the left side above the guide channels.

You might want to check your recording schedule to see if they are working. If you were using the Rovi guide, then WMC won't recognize those recordings as being the same with SD/EPG123 guide listings.

I'm having trouble getting guide updates and looking at the log it appears that there is an issue with the SD lineup.

Any ideas? Thanks, this has been a life saver for the past 2 years.

Yah, there appears to be an issue with the SD servers. Please submit a ticket with SD at https://schedulesdirect.org/lineupsupport.

I am having an issue with a empty programming guide. Channels are there, just "NO DATA" for every channel. I had to do a clean install of Win 7. I went through my usual process to get EPG123 set up as my programming guide for WMC, ended up with no data in the guide. EPG123 finishes successfully, no error code or messages. Any idea what I should do?
