I dropped the idea of using V5 as I haven't been able to successfully get channels to display at all. I've made a channel list after scanning, but from there, they don't seem to get picked up. I've even left it overnight, and it still does not do anything.
Right now the big issue I have with the plugin is that I can't seem to get the EPG to display for each favorite group. I don't know where I'm going wrong, but the EPG is downloading, and if I go to the EPG text box, and select my xmltv.xml file, I can display the guide for my whole entire channel selection, yet favorite categories/databases don't seem to bring up any EPG info (yet the channels are displayed).
Outside of the plugin, I'm not terribly happy with ProgDVB. It seems to be missing channels in its channel scan, that DVB Dream picks up fine. I also like the picture quality of DVB Dream better...I know it is all in the codec selection, which DVB Dream seems to offer more user control here as well. I also find that Prog is terribly overscanning my picture, where all other software (Zoom, TheaterTek, MPC, and DVB Dream) are playing fine.
It would be neat if you could develop this to work with DVB Dream, but understand your difficulties without owning a proper card to test with.
I'm currently thinking of going back to use DVB Dream, and create a bunch of individual events for favorite channels, and somehow incorporate the EPG (not sure how though).
Thanks for actually taking any time to look into this....this is why I've always said "The French Team Rocks"
