The question was asked of another poster, but regardless, the above isn't an answer.

Here's a rainbow, it has 7 colors. The colors are options. "Because options are good" doesn't answer the question "why did you pick green?"

Why not Schedules Direct

I choose this option (using mc2xml) because I live in the country, where I get a total of 6 channels. Paying for Schedules direct at full cost for 6 channels seems overkill. I will save my $25.00/yr (or $31.00 CAD) per year for a little inconvenience.

Thank You goes to t.Ziu and david1234

Re: david1234 - simply remove one channel, and re-add to force an epg reload, seemed to work for me.

t.Ziu: wish I had the mc2xml plug-in for v9

Everyone, Have a great day.
D.

mc2xml still alive

small issue with Timestamp message change from zap2it, but this fixes it...

elsif ($r->code == 400 && $dc =~ /Invalid time stamp or time span passed/) {

PS, did anyone convert 'mc2xml' plug-in for v9?

Thank you.
D.

I'm using this, because it's the only guide I could get working on sage7. And, for the most part, this just works.

At some point I'll upgrade, but my ancient win7 system doesn't tolerate change anymore, but I haven't had the time or budget to replace it.

I downloaded the update and reapplied my changes from the previous version. I wish they would throw this up on github, or something that's easier to watch for updates. I don't like that I don't usually know it's failing until a week after recordings stop. Of course, I do like that Sage is just a set and forget application at this point.

this isn't a license you see everyday, but you do when you start to consider forking a project and converting to python, or some other language I'm more familiar with...

Changing from V7 to V9 shouldn’t even be noticed by your system. Some users even did it on XP which took a little finessing.

I do miss xp. It never failed after an update like w7 does.

So is v9 literally a drop in replacement? I got the docket version running in a vm, to see what it took, but never looked into just doing an upgrade

I ran the windows installer over top of my V7 install and it worked great. The UI is pretty much the same with most of the changes under the hood. Schedules Direct provides 21 days in advance which is a nice bonus over the legacy EPG. Back up your current directory just in case as wiz.bin does get converted and is not backward compatible with V7.

Just wondering if anyone posted how to get mc2xml to work with Sagetv9.

I'm still running Sagetv 7, with mc2xml, zap2xml, and www.zap2it.com successfully for the past 1.5 years or so, However, I would love to go to sagetv 9.

Please let me know... I don't know if others are still on Sagetv 7 too.

(thanks to Slugger for the original mc2xml)..

Thanks
D.

zap2xml and mc2xml

Been a while, but here is how I remember things.
zap2xml, is used to pull data from zap2it, and morph it into an xml format that mc2xml plugin can accept to create a Program guide.

currently mc2xml EPG Plugin is only for Sagetv 7,
Yes, I am still running Sagetv 7, and the above two for my EPG.

A little tinkering once last year, and that is all... everything is working perfectly.

But I would love to upgrade to Sagetv 9.
Anyone with help on getting mc2xml up to Sagetv 9, would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
D.

Why would you need mc2xml? Is your guide data not available for sched direct?
