Hi,

I'm a newbie so excuse the daft question.... I have a Vu+ Duo box running the latest Vix image. I've noted that some of the channels only e.g. "Motors TV" only show now and next program details. However other freesat channels show listings for the next 7 days. I'm using "Cross EPG 0.6.2." and I'm assuming I need to download a file or configure the EPG to get more listings for channels such as "Motors TV" and other Sky based channels.

Can anyone help - thanks ?

I'm not using anything other than the EPG I obtain by pressing the 'red' button on the remote, which gives me seven full days. I only use the VU+ for FTA channels though. Motors TV is a scrambled channel, are you running your subs card in the Duo? That may have something to do with it.

Under Menu - setup - system - EPG - CrossEPG - OpenTV providers there should be four options. Make sure SkyUKopentv(astra2 on 28.2) has a green tick.

Test it out by pressing yellow for download. You should then see the full weekly EPGs for all Sky channels.

Check the other menus in the CrossEPG section to run an EPG download automatically every night.
