For European users who would like an XMLTV-compliant EPG listing without internet connection or DVB:

With nxtvepg I can now parse the NextView EPG listing to XMLTV format on my HTPC in windows XP using my Hauppauge PVR250 board. No more need for an internet connection to get an electronic programme guide!... well I still need it, since the only Nextview provider on my cable is the French TV5 and it doesn't carry the programme listings for most of my channels :( (supposedly there are channels which do, but my cable provider doesn't transmit those? :( ).

Here's (http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=12486) the link I posted on the SageTV forums for instructions.

BTW. DVB uses it's own EPG format, although you can use nextview on channels transmitted through DVB as well...
