EPG advice for anyone using both Freeview and Freesat.
Added by A L over 6 years ago
I have just got started with TVH, as a Linux beginner, and am loving it so far.
Now I have the basics set up, I am looking to find tune things.
Can any UK users advise what the best method is for getting a decent EPG please, considering I have a mix of freeview and freesat tuner cards?
I note that TVH is able to do proper series linking but you need CRID information to do this. Does this mean that should use internet grabbing for the EPG? The reason I ask is that I have never found an internet grabber that provides this.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I only have freesat so can't comment about free view but I use the EIT and freesat over air EPG grabbers (EIT as the top priority) and that works for me. I don't think TVH uses CRID for series link, just simple duplication checks on description, episode etc. It works OK for me apart from sometimes it records a repeat which I have to delete. Accurate record (epg state) works well when the broadcasters get it right. BBC and C4 are always spot on. ITV is a bit hit and miss and C5 never works.
