    Very recently I cannot get the EPG for Euronews, CNN, BBC World news (Europe), Al Jazeera and NHK World Japan. All other (40+) channels are OK, including BBC 1 and 2.

    I am using Crossepg and have tried multiple times to download the EPGs onto both USB and onto HDD. No effect.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    (Early October I tried 3.0.6 but that image gave me a lot of problems so I went back to 3.0.5 L. So I do not want to do that again to try and solve my problem.)

    I have them: have you tried to update the rytec providers (through the specific command of Crossepg) and then have you chosen the provider "News Channels XMLTV (xz)" ?

    Thanks for the reminder!
    I have always had the "News Channels" provider chosen. Over the past week or so I have refreshed the rytec providers and have always got 83 providers. Last evening I did it again and got 89 providers!
    That solved my problem!

    (I just wonder why suddenly I did not get these EPGs. What happened? And why it took about a week to get 6 new providers. I tried all known to me alternatives without success. It's not so good to be dependant on just one method or source of getting EPG's!)

    Thanks again for your reminder.
