    Dvb epg

    The DVB EPG in my area is reliable and I see no other reason to use it other than NextPVR only updates once a day. Most channels provide 1-2 day scheds but I have a couple that only do 12 hrs at a time.

    I would like to run multiple EPG updates a day.

    schedule it in task scheduler. nextpvr.exe -updateepgonly

    you'll want to avoid times when you might be recording though.

    You should also consider Schedules Direct works great in Canada much easier and better data than ATSC and cost about a cup of coffee a month.

    Not my question, but that is what I am moving away from. There is no reason why this shouldn't work.

    It is ok for occasional live TV and recordings. In general PVR use for others new comers who might read this post I wouldn't recommend it. On top of better data and art, features like record new only, avoding duplicates and updates during recoridng and live tv. Many people use Kodi and frequent EPG updates are a pain with it even once a day.

    Ive been using pvrs since sage came out with version 1 (over 10 years ago). Kodi, at best, is unstable due to its inability to recover from errors. It makes it a weak client. My dvb schedule does show 'new' shows.

    I am new here, not everywhere.
