Unable to load guide data - error messages
« on: May 04, 2009, 10:05:39 PM »
Hi All

Have installed Win7 Build 7000 and would like to try IceGuide for it, but the  load_icetv_epg.bat file I downloaded has problems.
Having edited the file to include my userID & password, it downloads guide data OK, but then falls over when trying to load the data into MediaCentre, with either of the following errors:

'Object reference not set to an instance of an object'


'mergedLineup.LineupMergeRule is null
Parameter name: mergedLineup'

I've tried this with two different tuner cards, a Hauppauge Nova-T 500 & a DigitalNow TinyTwin USB dongle thing & get similar results.
Both tuners were not recognised initially, but after downloading & installing drivers, Device Manager reports both 'working properly'.

Also, running Tasks>Settings>TV>TV Signal>TV Signal SetUp' in MediaCentre results in no TV channels being found with the 'scan' utility.
There is a signal here - I've tested it with a TV.

I'm thinking this could be a driver issue (though others report both devices working in Win7, using the same drivers), but not sure about the being unable to load guide data problem - this should be independent of the TV tuner card not getting channels, no?

Any help/advice appreciated.

Oops, just noticed a similar question posted last month, with the reply that it's a Win7 error message, not an IceGuide thing.

Sorry for posting redundantly.

Thinking I'll try again with RC1 in a few days (maybe I've managed to corrupt my MediaCentre installation, and a fresh install will help...)
