XMLTV Import Tool & Schedules Direct for USA?

Ok, I did use XMLTV Import Tool a couple of years ago
but could not get it to work with Schedules Direct.
Went back to EPG built into Sagetv
Now I need to use again with HD PVR and hdhomerun &......
I forgot everything I did and can't find my notes anyhow.

Anybody use this combo can suggest instalation?
Even forgot where I got grabber and how to setup.
My mind and computer are all messed up.

I'm curious why you need to go to XMLTV instead of the stock SageTV guide data?

Everything was fine until I added HD PVR.
I was using composite video/audio capture of my cable box
but when I added HD PVR I did not want to use all
HD capture of ALL the channels. So I setup two
sources. Worked fine until I found out the new channels
added to EPG added to composite capture line up but not the
HD lineup.
Back to import tool but I could not get it working with schedule direct.

You need to pick another guide from a neighboring zip code that mimcs the same programming as your home base guide. And then just enable the channels you want. You want to use two seperate guide info. One for your composite/analog channels and one for your HD=PVR digital channels. It will all appear as one guide in Sage.

What Gerry said.

Don't use xmltv when you have a perfectly good guide data feed coming from SageTV for free.

I have three different guide "sets" for my setup. Here's an example:
  • My PVRUSB2 & PVR 500's use the TW Kansas City, standard cable guide
  • My HDHomeRun tuner uses the TW Kansas City, extended cable guide
  • My HD-PVR tuner uses the TW Overland Park (neighboring suburb), extended cable guide
All of those channels show up integrated into a single guide in SageTV. That's how I recommend you do it.

yes, yes, yes
did that
ran out of neighbor cities.
the problem is when they start using the same station id.

with my cable box I now have:
HD through HD PVR (h.264)
NTSC through composite video capture (also extended channels)
HD through HDhomerun
NTSC through 2 dual tuner cards

right now hd pvr chews up cpu cycles on playback
so I do not want it to be in the same selection as hdhomerun
and, of course, I do not want to record everything from my cable box in HD
