Hi, when i use TV Recordings it doesnt seem to put anything in the database....

However i have also noticed your TV Listings data directory is:

C:\Users\Public\NPVR\Plugins\TV Listings\TheTVDB

Windows XP doesnt use this, the NPVR data is:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\NPVR\Plugins\TV Listings

Is this broken?

I'm going to check the datafile location on an xp system when I'm back home. But I think I don't have access to an x64 win xp. Can you please attach your npvr.log file so that I can have a look?

the tv lsitings.db3 that is shipped with the downnload package at the wiki contains a path to C:\Users\Public\NPVR\Plugins\TV Listings\TheTVDB, so that this setting is used by default on win xp, too. You can still change the path to the directory using the configuration form of the plugin. For the next release, I'm going to remove the default path from the shipped database so that a suitable default directory will be chosen automatically when the plugin first starts.
