I just found this nice little utility. I've not tried it yet, but I'm downloading it now. I have just setup ShowShifter on my HTPC and was wondering how I can use this program to get EPG data into the software. Can you point me in the right direction ?

yep, if you are using version 3.10 (i highly reccomend it) then simply run my program and set up which cahnnels you want to download. close it and then open showshifter, goto showguide, click on the spanner at the top, the click on set collection times, tick the external box, set command to the path to xmltv ("c:\program files\XMLTV RadioTimes\xmltvrt.exe" and add /Grab /Silent to the end (so the complete command would be "c:\program files\XMLTV RadioTimes\xmltvrt.exe /Gab /Silent" then set the data location to where you have selected to save the listings to ("c:\program files\XMLTV RadioTimes\data.xml" by default) and click on the tick.
