View Full Version : Network Recorder Initial EPG Update Kills NPVR

2011-08-31, 05:04 PM
Installed Network Recorder on another machine today and had a similar problem as on my first machine (I didn't report it the first time as I missed saving the error message).

I use Schedules Direct and after importing the line-up on the Device Setup dialog for Network Recorder, I go to Channels and hit Update EPG. It gets the EPG data and saves it, then a pop-up appears saying "Checking for DVB/ATSC updates" followed by NPVR stopping with the attached error message. After closing NPVR from the error box, it restarts fine and everything is OK thereafter, including subsequent EPG updates.

I have a QAM tuner installed that also uses Schedules Direct which is working fine.

I believe that is a problem for sub, however I suspect the simple workaround is to exit NextPVR.exe and start again before updating the EPG which I will confirm before updating the wiki.

I figured it was probably in Sub's area. A documented work-around is fine, we're all adults here, and can follow written instructions. Right?
