View Full Version : just keeping an issue alive!!

Are there any plans whatsoever for Frey to make a UK version of the listings that you guys have in the US?
I have to say that the software is let down by the lack of a decent EPG (UK).
I am using XMLTV to download the .XML data, but this does not give you anything like enough information about the program within Sage.
Surely there is the demand for it?!?
The UK needs this feature badly!

I hope you are not going to post this every 2 weeks... :)
There may be demand (from Sage, BTV, GBPVR, MythTV, myHTPC etc users) but there is no-one willing to supply the data, and at UKP 15,000 per annum cost for listings data (figures from digiguide (last post in page) (http://forums.digiguide.com/topic.asp?id=11811)), plus equipment/bandwidth/development/support costs, you would need a lot of paying subscribers to break even.
Remember that home-built PVRs are still a niche app in the UK... Anyone from the 'general public' would just buy SkyPlus boxes...

PS: A better way of 'keeping an issue alive' would be to add a 'bump' post the one of the existing 2 threads, bringing it back to the top of the list...
