Default how do I get the tv guide in MP to work?

I cannot figure that out it would be a real bonus if I could use the guide but for some reason it doen't have any Canadian sites on other countries. I had thought that there was a way to access the Zap2it tv guide or am I getting mixed up with mythbuntu?
or is it one of those pay for things

All I can suggest is posting/searching the MediaPortal forums. I don't use TV through my HTPC so I have no idea.

I am not sure about that web site because I have posted a couple of things asking for help and never received any replies. At first I thought that maybe my questions had an obvious answer to them, but then I would expect some type of reply, even if it was a negative response but I haven't' received any responses at all. I cry discrimination that are all prejudice against Canadians

Lowfat mentioned in other thread he uses BeyondTV, I assume with TV guide, so Canadian TV listings must exist somewhere.

I'd suggest spending some money on SageTV or BeyondTV, for watching TV. They both have free trials. BTV is my preference. Best of all BTV, SageTV are fairly wife proof...and wife approved. But if you are not married...then knock yourself out with MP.

If you want some eye candy..then use XBMC(free) with BTV or SageTV. XBMC is very user friendly.
