Program Guide Update Time?

How long does it take the Program Guide to update? I haven't had internet for a while and it finally started working again. So i turned on SageTV and it didn't update. I restarted it and it didn't update. Then i tried re-selecting the list to use and it didn't start updating. When will it update completely?

The EPG updates every 24 hours. Check under setup>system info. There will be a line for "next epg update". That entry should tell you when the EPG will update next.
One way to force an update is to remove a channel then add the channel back. That should force an immediate epg download.
It appears to take around 5 min for the EPG data to be downloaded on my system.

If you are using XMLTV thenn if you use my stvi, you wouldnt have to wait, hope and sit by .

Yoc can either force it to update,from sage, or have your xmltv geeter program run at the end and send an event to sage to force Epg Updates.

Check it out:
