    Empty EPG UK dvb-t

    A few days ago I noticed the EPG starting to fail to update. I've played around with refreshing and rescanning. I've now updated to v1.1.5 but no improvement. I checked the other empty EPG thread, but I wasn't sure how to proceed. Advce please. Logs attached. TIA.

    Hi,

    This happens me every couple of months. Check your recordings directory, and I'll probably be full of small 30MB files. Delete the small files and try the update again.

    NumberFive is probably correct. In you D:\Tele directory, delete any files that start with 'gbepg' then try again.

    I deleted all the gbepg*.* files but the epg is still empty in gbpvr, although there is a skeleton EPG with no details when viewed in pvrx2. Very odd. New set of logs attached.

    Can you set the logging level back to 'Debug' then hit the 'update epg' button in the config app. After it completes, zip and attach the logs and I'll take a look.

    Can you zip and attach your bda.ini file?

    You seem to have a device selected that is not listed in your BDA.ini. Try going into your capture source settings in the config app and selecting the device you have.

    Aha, success: I added the lines below to bda.ini. The epg is now back.

    It seems like the gbepg*.* files were stopping the epg, then when I upgraded in an attempt to cure the problem I didn't remember to add the bda.ini sections to support my Leadtek Winfast DTV1000T tuner cards. Ta for all the help.
