I’ve been wanting to get this working for a long time now and we finally have a solution for integrating live TV from True Visions in to Windows 7 Media Center.
This is still work in progress, but as you can see from the below screen shots we have EPG data in Media Center for the TV channels, I believe this is a first in Thailand using Windows 7 Media Center!
We used the Big Screen EPG beta application written by Niall Ginsbourg to import the XMLTV data in to Media Center.
I’d like to give Niall a massive thank you for his help with this project.
If anyone is interested in Live TV / PVR functionality within Windows Media Center here in Thailand, then please feel free to contact me and I can put you in touch with a CEDIA registered custom installation company in this region.

There’s a mixture of English and Thai language in the EPG, depending on what data is being imported in to Media Center from the XMLTV grabber.
We can potentially have up to a full month of program guide data.

Big Screen EPG is currently in beta state and will be a commercial application when it is released.
We added logos to the majority of the TV Channels.
