    Hi Guys,

    I am really new to this to please be kind. I have the above box with image. I updated to latest image, thinking epg would be easy and regular/automatic. However, still the same problem. regularly channel list is empty, sometimes i do a manual download, sometimes it works most of the time it doesn't. Same with open TV cross epg.

    Is there a way of making this working on first attempt, or automatically?

    is there anything i can do to configure it for above.

    thanks a million in advance for your help

    Hello mate, thanks for your reply.

    I normally press the blue button, then red for epg, then select sky uk
    Then yellow to download.

    When this doesn't work, I try the cross epg on open tv.


    The URL listed there is the same mentioned in the forums.

    Let me what exact info you need and I'll dig it out.

    Thanks again really appreciate it.

    Hi mate, thanks for this info. I followed it but in cross epg configuration, it won't allow me to Change the storage device. It's internal flash (unsuggested). I tied going left/right but nothing would change here.

    Also I have 2tb hdd I installed internally, can I not use that instead of USB?
    How do I make sure that the hdd is not In Sleep mode

    Thanks again

    if you cannot change your storage device it means that your usb or hdd are not mounted. Mount them first using blue > blue > device manager.
    HDD stand by mode you can disable using menu > setup > hard disc setup, but IMHO I wouldn't use hdd as your drive must be on all the time when your vu is on. Use USB stick, it's much better solution.

    I use 16GB usb stick, with two partition on it - one for usual storage (epg - that's large file as I use motor settings with my vu; timeshift, picons, meoboot) and 2nd for universe. And guess what - I'm running out of space now.
    If you have a chance just get biggest you can find - these sticks are not expensive any more.
    I have 4 GB stick too, just for flashing new images. And 320GB hdd used for recordings only.
    And believe me - if you will buy small usb stick after some time you will find that wasn't good decision.
    :)

    you can use it for ... everything :) what you want (nearly - because it's not working with my wife :p nor yours :p)

    I have a Solo 2, but I use the built in EPG(CrossEPG?) and Cool TV Guide, and I am really satisfied, as I have two EPGs, if one of them isn't showing info the other one does.
